Well folks its been a while so figure I should post something. My fish are in their final week of treatment in the hospital tank and everyone is looking fantastic and healthy. So stoked to get them back in the tank!!!!!!! All corals are growing well and my sps I got a while back have all started encrusting the epoxy they are mounted with. My torch coral is doing well though I did lose one head after removing the barnacles the other head is bouncing back nicely. My frogspawn, candy cane and GSP are growing like weeds. I'm also trying to convince the boss to let me start my seahorse tank but so far it's a no go. I did get a bunch of dry base rock (old coral skeletons collected by the father in law) given to me so hopefully I can get her on board. Anyways that's it for now.

Well I've decided tonight is the night for fish to go back in. Everyone is looking awesome so after my water change I will be dripping them back into the DT. So stoked to be able to enjoy them swimming around again. I am also thinking of cleaning out my 29 and starting to cycle it.

Oh and while I'm at it I am thinking of adding something else fishwise. I'm thinking something small and colorful with some character and I want some suggestions.

oh and maybe something to sift sand also and is not known as a picky eater. i have mandarin on my list for a later date once i get a fuge going. maybe a small goby or an open swimmer. also im not a big fan of fish with visible scales.

well ive been browsing online but havent found a fish that fits the bill short of a mandarin. i may just see if i can find a tank raised one thats eating prepared foods. i may also be able to swindle my lfs into a swap for an aqua clear 110 so i can build a HOB fuge. i know he wants RODI water so maybe thats the avenue to take. the only other fish ive found that i like is a fire fish. annyone have experience with these?
