Ha! Well i am envious of it, we dont have mushrooms sinse they are so dang expensive here. Seriously, yours is worth 100+ bucks.
They are awesome, i think you should look into some type of wrasse. Those are so active!

Well the other day my blenny was at the front glass, I had noticed his belly looked odd but wasn't ever to get a good look till this point. I noticed his belly moving- full of worms :-( I had also noticed my fox face "shedding" spending time at the cleaner shrimp and had cloudy eyes plus my clowns especially the female have been suffering frayed fins. So I set of a hospital tank and removed all fish for treatment. Dosed some prazipro for the worms and once that treatment is done I'll dose the clowns for the fin rot. I had some oddball rock in my DT that I removed to the hospital tank and have some other dry rock aswell that I will be adding aswell as a nice big piece that will be taking the place of the removed rocks in the DT. Other than those issues everything is doing well, seeing growth on my green monti and my candy cane is getting ready to split again (it's looking really nice) all other corals are doing well and looking great.

I googled it and it is normal for them to shed, it's just replenishing the slime coat. All things combined is why I decided to treat him too, fit the symptoms of flukes which prazipro also treats. My blenny is my main concern, I could see the worms moving in his stomach. The clowns meh, I wanted to get some Picasso or something anyway. If they live sweet if not sweet but I will be doing my best to heal them up. Thanks for the concern guys.

So on a plus note, all fish appear to be on the mend. Fox faces eyes have cleared up as have the blennies, and his belly is looking better. Even the clownfish look better, full of energy (always were) and the marks on the fins look better- fingers crossed. Best of all they all ate greedily, the blenny attacked the pipette when I stuck it near him. Now the main tank, when I first started on my CUC I added two nassarius snails and after feeding the tank I counted at least five babies aswell as the original two. Also some small bristle worms and loads of starfish, everywhere I looked there were brittle star legs sticking out, even white ones on the sand. Also noticed loads of amphipods in addition to the Isopoda and copepods I normally see. I also have loads of other worms, spaghetti worms, some other ones that have 2 clear arms that reach out and probe around and one big ugly grey one that looks like some sort of alien scifi creation. He rolls in on himself and then rolls out to reach further- creepy little thing. I am very happy to see things growing including my coral, in the last few days I've noticed visible growth on my green monti cap, and that's increase from yesterday till today. Should grow like a weed. Everything else is growing other than my latest 5 sps additions, they have only been around a week so in time I should notice growth, they all have good polyp extension and color which is a good sign. I love this tank and it really makes me feel successful with everything growing and multiplying. The next step is adding a couple peppermint shrimp hopefully next weekend to try and get rid of the aiptasia I'm noticing, only about 8-10 small ones. Aiptasia-x didn't work on them so I'll try the shrimp. I also want to see if I can find some bargain Maxijets for my mix bin and medical/qt tank. Other than that I think I'm done adding for a while to let things settle and grow in then I can decide what other corals to add and maybe get my purple firefish, likely sooner than later. Be a nice color to throw in the mix.

Well I just got back from shopping yipeeeeee!!!!! I picked up a number of things, lets start with hardware. I got a maxi jet 1200 for my mixing powerhead aswell as a digital thermometer. I also grabbed some nori for my algae eaters and some epoxy to mount frags to my LR. Got some melafix to dose up in the hospital tank. Now the good stuff, I got a couple peppermint shrimp to eat the small amount of aiptasia popping up. One store tried to sell me on a copper band but I was not going that route. Don't get me wrong very beautiful fish and the price was the same as two peppermints but the risk and hassle wasn't for me. The pride of my spree was the AMAZING green torch coral I got, I finally found it. This was the must have coral for me so I am stocked I finally found it and it is beautiful and huge. Pics are coming up after acclimation and I decide on where to place it. I also rescaped with some old coral skeleton/rock I forgot I had.

Well here is a pic, not open yet but it is so brightly colored. Also came with a few barnacles which is pretty neat. Will add pics of it open when that happens.
