Carey If your going to use those wp40's you can use one ea. of these( DC 5V 24V 4A 48W LED Light Dimmer Adjustable Bright Controller | eBay )to turn down the power) im using them on mine and they work great they plug in between the power supply and power head and give you more control over the wave

Well juts got home and settled in! Didn't have time yesterday to get to a fish store but made it today!

I got 6 polyps of cinnamon paly's, I have been wanting these for like 3 years! So, yay!!!!

I also picked up another copperband butterfly for the 125g. This one was eating in the store and isnt thin at all plus its a decent size so I figured he would be perfect for that tank! So far the tangs are leaving him alone and he is swimming all over the tank hopefully getting acclimated. My fingers are crossed for this guy. Added bonus this guy was only $35 which is $15 less than what I paid for the last two butterflys.

I also picked up some rods food, hoping that might do the trick with the anthias, AND I got a small bag of live brine which I added to the tank. Here's hoping he finally starts eating. It sucks to just sit by helplessly and watch a fish starve itself, but he has to be eating something as it's been two weeks since I got him.

That's all for now, I expect to make some more purchases this upcoming week when I get paid. Just not sure what to get next, maybe the powerheads.....I can install them in the 125g for now I figure so I can get double duty from them until I get the big tank.

Thanks for following along everyone, I appreciate it and all your comments and help.

Congratulations on the new Butterfly! Copperbands are so pretty and graceful.

Good luck with the Anthias!

I didnt see him eat any. :-( But I just dumped them in and didnt stick around that long to watch, I was getting the butterfly ready to go in.

I will try some rods food in a little bit as well, as well as some more cyclopeeze.

This fish is making me stress out! LOL

They just stop eating sometimes. IMO I have them in my top 10 fish to not buy at the LFS. Some folks have spectacular luck with them. But not me.

Hope he comes around.

Well, the anthias went missing yesterday so thats not good. Still have to rip apart the tank to find the remains. :-(

On a brighter note the copperband finally ate some frozen so it should be clear sailing from here.
