Overall update: so far CBB is doing ok. He's picked at a bit of aiptasia (I can see that white stringy crap they leave behind when they've been housed), and seems to be making friends with my scarlet shrimp (scarlet was cleaning him off a little earlier).
Pepps are still around and doing their dance, but still won't touch the **** aiptasia!
Looks like I may have a little mini cycle going as I recover from all the death and destruction. Nitrates are up just a hair to 5ppm. Nitrites still at 0 for now, so that's a good thing. Phosphates, 0, calcium and kh
just a hair lower then I like to keep them - but since I haven't been adding any kind of suplements that's also not shocking.
