I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Those are some fun fish! How mesmerizing!

Are the other fish in the cube acting okay? Maybe the ammonia killed of some beneficial bacteria?

May be the case but im guessing it would be a BBs paridise in an ammonia filled tank!

Cool video. There is a lot of movement in that tank and it looks like all the new additions are doing fine.

Figured it was time to update whats been going on. I have been testing the water in both the cube and 180g several times a day trying to figure out if it is in fact ammonia. I even threw in some prime into both tanks just in case. Prime doesnt cause a false negative does it? Cause now the ammonia is almost undetectable in both tanks a day later. I'm hoping the live rock just did its job and processed it, no sign of nitrites in either tank though and mild levels of nitrates.
All the fish in the 180g seem fine still, I still havent seen the naso eat anything other than seaweed though, not sure what to do about that. Also haven't seen the mandarin eat either which really has me worried. And those **** chromis, another one jumped into the overflow and i cant take it apart again until the new bulkhead I ordered gets here on tuesday. The bulkhead nut is stripped from taking it off the last time the chromis got in. lol

Thats about it I guess, so some good and some bad news, it could be alot worse I suppose.

I'm sure the Naso will come around! Until then he is just enjoying his seaweed. Does Mandy still have pods in the Cube?

Jumpy fish can certainly be trying! Lol.

Maybe you can cover the tips with some BRS netting, or something of the like.....hmmm...

My honey took a plastic soda bottle and cut it up so it would cover the hole where the chromis keep jumping into lol. Still have to wait til tuesday to get him out though, I feel kinda bad but theres not much we can do.

The cube is completely bare of pods now. I nuked it 2 weeks ago and then added the live rock that was aipastia free but there were no pods on it. :-( She is pretty fat so hopefully she can last til she starts eating again. Silly fish can be so frustrating at times. lol
