I've introduced that movie to a few folks. Some die laughing others have no sense of humor. You are right with saying it's so bad, it's good. I crack up every time I see it. He's a magician with that belt.

My dragon wrasse isn't big enough yet to move the larger chunks of rock but he def can pick up a rock the same size as him and toss it furiously. It's comical but alarming in the same sense. I'm gonna have to figure something out for him eventually because I can see him tossing a chunk into the glass eventually

How are all the other fish doing? Any of the infamous Chromis die-off? My LFS got two more of the bi-color Chromies and I'm thinking of going up to three now.

mines prob somewhere within the 5-6" range. He's still fairly small but I have noticed that his "camo" colors are fading and his cow lick. On his head is shortening

Not a horrible price, just have to scrape up the money now. Hopefully he will still have them both by the time I do. lol Getting lots of inquiries on the biocube I have for sale but no takers yet, and the 125g guy who was interested, a friend of a friend, hasnt returned my call. :-( The 125g monies will pay for the custom stand for the 60g.lol I also asked this lfs if he could put baffles in my current sump and he told me he would be too expensive and if I was neat I could do it myself. He also quoted me a price for a new eshopps 75 if I wanted to go that route. Still debating what to do, I think the money flow will dictate what I end up going with. Spend a few hours this morning scraping the glass in the 125 and getting it picture perfect. lol the glass hasnt been this spotless in a few months. Even went under the sand line a bit to remove some of that gunk, looks pretty darn awesome if I dont say so myself. Also finally got the rock anemone and bubble tip to let go of their aipastia infested rock and moved them into the biocube where they are attached and looking a zillion times better. Today will be a big water change day, been up all night making water and prepping. Gonna hit the 90g, the 60g and the 180g. Oh, and the 180g has a pellet reactor going for about 3-4 weeks now but I still have nitrates and some phosphates, so no help from it yet. Almost forgot, it seems pootie tang has taken to re-arranging my corals. LOL Hubby saw him lift up my stunner chalice and move it to the back of the tank. Then after I moved it to the front on the sandbed he moved it again, this time about 2 feet to the left. I find this so amusing, never really thought fish cared about stuff like that. Anyone else have this happen to them with their fish and coral? Share if you have, i cant be the only one. lol
I've had my clown decide he didn't like a coral that I placed next the elegance coral it hosts and repeatedly push it over until I finally moved it.

Sorry for the loss of the tang btw.

So far the fish, namely the chromis are still accounted for. One has found his way into the overflow again. lol he is staying there for a bit, I've pretty much stripped the bulkhead screw by taking it off so many times to retrieve lost chromis. lol

The yellow tang is now hiding alot,not sure what his deal is yet. Looks healthy so hopefully he will start hanging out with the other tangs again.

Most of my corals have been decimated by the new leds unfortunately. Pulled out a few dead ones today. :-( All my stunner chalices are bleached white, shame too cause it grew like a weed in the biocube. I have one frag left of it in the 8g kitchen tank so that I'm hoping will grow again once I move it permanently to a tank. Some corals I moved out of this tank over to the biocube in hopes of saving them. Two duncans, one cinnamon paly frag, my mushroom colony, the torch and a few others. They showed immediate improvement too, within a few hours the cinnmons and torch all opened up a bit. The huge gsp colony is also starting to open some polyps, a few more each day so I think I got it out in time. The big toadstool is still in there though and it hasnt opened in days and is all waxy....The only coral in the 180g that is looking ok is the blastomussa for some reason, typically they dont like high lighting but it opens the same as always. Go figure....
