Candy is in the hole in the rock with her head kinda sticking out.

All is well in the tank still. I'm starting to get optimistic that it was a fluke with the fish dying. Still waiting a few more weeks for fish though. I hate seeing such an empty tank. The clowns are always doing their body surfing at the top of the water and the tang is about all I can see swimming around. LOL

Right now my only issue is getting my skimmer to work again. When I did my big pwc I musta added too much water cause now all I get is foam and the water just fills the cup right up.
Thats todays mission. And maybe a trip to a lfs.

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

Just did my water tests and nitrates came out to 0. Woot! I guess the refugium actually does help.

Now to my dilemma. I was just checking out my rocks and looking for new live things when I realized that my rock is absolutely teeming with pods, big and small. I was thinking on adding a mandarin into it. I was gonna put the ORA mandarin in my cube but I think my 125g might be able to sustain a regular wild one. I do have one(ORA) on hold for the last 2 weeks at my LFS. What do you guys think? Should I stay with the original plan and put him in my cube so I can feed him specifically or let nature take its course in the 125g?

It's been a few weeks since anything has gone wrong in this tank so I'm fairly confident that it might be ok to add something. Or should I still wait it out for a few weeks?
Got some pictures I'll upload in a minute, I've been very bored today. LOL

I agree. Then when you have him, you will of course post pics?

Believe it or not I was debating a blue jawfish. Havent done much research on it yet, are they reef safe and not jumpers? I have an open tank....
