Awesome. Definitely on my stocklist for my pico. I'd do a firefish instead but it'll probably be overstocking. Thanks

Very nice!

I really like the picture with the Anthias!

Have you ever worried that you might bring a fish over to the 125g when you move the frag racks back over?

I hadn't thought of that. I'll have to make sure there are no stow aways on the racks. LOL

I found a serpent starfish and snail last night in my water change garbage can. haha It must have ridden in on the powerhead I took out of the 125g to mix water and salt with. LOL

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

Lol! All sorts of hitchhikers! I guess they wanted a change of scenery.

I do remember how Candy ended up in the 125g by hiding in a rock. That must have been pretty weird to see her in the 125g.

Picked up a copperband butterfly today. Here's hoping it does well for me.

The LFS has had him in their coral tank for the last month and he ate like a champ today so I think I have a good shot. Acclimating as I type. lol

Pictures of course will be up soon!

I caught a picture of the fish in the bucket and figure I won't get a clear shot in the tank until everyone settles in. So here he is, Mr copperband butterfly. It's a pretty large fish too and has been an angel from catching him in the tank at the LFS to getting him in my bucket. lol he doesn't look stressed at all.

so the fish has been in for like 20-30 min. It went straight to the left side back rocks. lol One by one each fish has come over to investigate him, no aggression at all. No tail swiping from the yellow which is the first time he hasn't done that to a new fish. I took a quick video of him starting to explore the tank, since the video he has gotten abotu 3/4 of the way across and still no issues. It looks like the other fish are scared of him lol. He is almost the size of twitchy tang. lol

I plan on leaving the blues on for another hour or two and then i will try to feed the tank. I will rest ALOT easier if I see him eat in MY tank.

Are copperbands like mandarins that can sitch off prepared foods whenever? Or once they eat it then you're good to go?

thanks!! here is the video, it's a silent one so you won't hear me yattering on and on. HAHA
