It also dissolves easily without so much left over particulates.

Cause some plan changes for sure!
The tank is looking absolutely fantastic!

Thank you!

Here are today's additions:

There's about 10 nassarius snails, I bought 5. 2 pepps, and a Midas blenny.

Terrible picture, but he was unbelievably stressed. He was charcoal with black stripes - I went home at 7 for lunch and he was still chilling, same color, but alive, so good to go.

Thanks - I also removed the (2) green Chromis from my tank and donated to LFS.

I was getting overstocked and dealing with nitrates, and as Mr. X pointed out in a very common sense way... When battling nitrates, adding a 7th fish isn't going to help much.

Both Chromis were constantly in the rocks so getting them out was a miracle. One was already looking terrible, I snapped a few pics before i got him.

LOL!, I suppose if you paid for that flight and rented a car just to steal the monti - I wouldn't even be mad.

Very nice additions. Would like a nice shot of the new midas though. I miss mine very much....

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

I would love a shot of the Midas too... My plan was to have him in the QT for a couple weeks as a super stressed out fish from California freaks me out a bit. Unfortunatly, I learned extremely quickly just after acclimating that he was a jumper. I only have a 10 gallon QT, and as soon as he touched the water he flew out at breakneck speed. I had to grab him from the table, and put him into the DT. Luckily the water in the QT was directly from it, so no shock there.

He settled in yesterday at 2 or 3:00p. I came home at 7ish to check up, and saw him still black and gray. He saw me, kinda looked around and then hid behind a rock.

I got home at 3:00a, nothing so far. I woke up at 9:00a, and still no sign of him or the pepperment shrimps. I didn't think I'd be seeing much of the snails as they are under the sand.

I'm going to give it a while before I get too concerned. I haven't seen any piles of CUC anywhere. He was very stressed, so I'm not suprised that he is still in hiding.
