Is it normal to have visible daily growth on a Monti? Am I just getting lucky?

LOL, I thought it was just me. Mine has visibly gotten larger, I just keep thinking that it can't grow that fast. Would like to know also if this is the norm?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My little one has grown a good 1/2" on all sides. There was even a piece that broke off when I was getting it situated. I just laid it on the rocks and it has now encrusted itself to the rock and thriving. It has only been about 3 weeks.

Same here - little broken piece, but yup in a week or so I've gotten probably 1/4"!

On a negative note, I just found that my latest mushroom purchase came with a... MAJANO! I saw it today as it detached from the mushroom rock and reattached to another rock I have just above the mushrooms... Its about an inch across.

Removal techniques?

I also found an aptasia hitchhiker that came on a xenia, but luckily, I caught it in time, and its easy to toss the rock away with that one.

I've been so focused on my corals lately that I haven't been thinking about fish.

Right now in my (54) I have a pair of B/W Perc clowns, and (2) green Chromis along with (1) skunk cleaner shrimp.

I was planning to add:

(1) Midas Blenny
(1) Purple Firefish
(1) McCosker's / Carpenters Flasher wrasse
(1) Skunk cleaner shrimp (for a total of 2)

Anyone see any issues?

Needless to say the fish won't be added all at once!

How many gallons do I need to make through my new RO/DI (I got the PWC 100gpd from eBay link) before I can start saving?

I went through I believe 10 or 15 gallons before I started using the water.
