First water change today (a little later than I wanted).
Ammonia and nitrites are at 0. Nitrates are at 20 I'll do another change tomorrow.

pH was 8.2, salinity 1.025 and Mg 1290. I didn't have an AAA batteries to check calcium, alk or phosphates with my hanna checkers. I'll get some tomorrow

Added two more azure damsels and another clown. All are getting along very well, so I'm going to put in one more clown.


After this, nothing more till I get my skimmer. I've decided against a mandarin, and definitely no coral beauty/flame angel. I might do a yellow assessor goby. Both my wife and I want one or two more with some real eye popping color...

I have a gold assessor. Awesome fish with tons of personality. Swims sideways and upside down. Crazy fish!

They're so cool! Beautiful too once they get comfortable, I've always wanted one but afraid my gramma would fight him.

My Purple Firefish ignores him, but I have them in a 180 gallon reef. Plenty of breathing room for the two of them.

I'm checking w/ my LFS to see what they've got arriving today...hopefully a couple fun ones

I'm wondering, what, if anything, I can put in the overflow box on the back wall of the tank. Obviously nothing that can be sucked into the siphon, and I'd put a strainer on the intake tubes just in case. No fish, obviously, but maybe a couple coral? Any ideas?

Jackpot!! The LFS got some midas blennies in yesterday. I hope they're still there Friday when I'm able to swing by and pick them up. One of those, another black clown, and maybe a few more red legged hermits and another cleaner or coral banded shrimp.


Then it's time to get my new skimmer...

Got the midas today. Hid in the rocks for about 30 minutes but is now out and about. Nice bright coloring on him.

Unfortunately, the last juvenile black clown sold yesterday. I'm on the fence as to whether I should wait for more, or if I should pick up a gorgeous juvenile snowflake clown they had...
