Have you tried adding garlic to entice the wrasse to eat? Worth a shot at least
That would be sweet! My parameters as of last night for the basics were 0,0,10, 79 F, 1.026, 8.0 pH, and I didn't test alk, or calcium.

I REALLY need to get my skimmer soon!

Yea I was kinda surprised you got the radion before the skimmer. But I wasn't gonna say anything. Man it's funny how fast things get delivered when I'm not the one waiting. You guys are always like just got my whatever and I'm like didn't he just order that yesterday. Lol

It is worse when you have to build all your own DIY stuff. I would love to be able to just order up what I want.

I bought a kindle fire and got amazon prime. That allows for 2-day free shipping, so the koralia and surge protect was fast. The radion and salt was offered from drsf&s on the 10th.

Skimmer and (1) MP-10 is in budget for March.

LOL. When you buy a Fire you get a (1) month free trial, then I think its like $80 / yr. I buy so much from Amazon that it pays for itself quickly.

Also as for skimmers, here are the two I am comparing. I'm almost positive both with fit in my sump, but I gotta double check my measurements tomorrow.

Bubble Magus BM-NAC7 Cone Protein Skimmer - English

Reef Octopus 4

Both are nice. I just got that reef octopus. The only thing I like better about that bubble magus is you can disassemble the bottom for easier cleaning. But with that design, with the internal pump, you might be limited if you decide to upgrade it later on.

Good info, but getting a skimmer rated so high, I would HOPE I wouldn't need to upgrade...

That's actually another thing I was gonna say. What is the neck size on that magus? It looks pretty big. IMO you can't overskim but you can get a skimmer that is too big and you won't be able to get s nice consistent head of foam on it, unless maybe if it has a super nice pump.
