Thanks for the help!!
Aquatraders one isn't bad at all. It's not the best pump but it runs quiet and doesn't have too much heat to it. Another alternative is a pond pump.

Just thought of something....Do you think fish can die from palytoxin poisoning like humans can? (Since he ate some zoas). That probably isn't it since it was a few weeks ago and they probably eat them in the wild, but it just popped into my mind as a possible death cause.

Again, I am really sorry for your loss of the Butterfly.

Did you decide against the Goatfish? If so do you have any other fish in mind?

Picked up a bi color goatfish today! he's a little bigger than I had hoped but I think he'll fit in fine.

At least I think he is a goatfish, I'm looking at him now and I'm starting to think otherwise. lol

Here is a shot of him, he's just temp acclimating for now.

After a few minutes of research I have found it is NOT a goatfish but a Coral Hogfish. Aggressive and not at all reef safe. LA says it can pick on smaller fish so I'm hoping I got a mellow one.

Shame on me for getting fooled! I havent been "had" in over a year. LOL

Well he's mine now so I'll let him do his thing.

Finally got around to a new video! It's not the greatest shooting but it has all my tanks that are up running shown, even the cichlids!

Hope it's not too too long but theres a lot of stuff to show! LOL
