Nope, the fungia didn't make it. The sand damage was too much and it just receded so much so quickly it was a lost cause. :-(

I most likely will not be trying another one due to my sand sifters, but if you can keep it from getting covered it should be an ok coral to keep. really pretty too which is what first attracted me to it.

Cool, thanks for the info!

Sorry about the coral not making it.

So, since I have the aipastia eating copperband in this tank I have been adding rocks that have them to the tank for him to eat. lol LAst night I moved a rock with 3 on it in and this time I stood and watched. Within 5 seconds the copperband was on the rock and ate one. The a few seconds later he got the other one. It was really cool to watch. The butterfly is awesome.

On a bad note, I moved my monti out of this tank and over to my 60g, it looks like it has brown jelly disease. :-(((( Part of it has already turned white, hoping I got the goo off and it recovers but I'm not too terribly hopeful.

I also think I am going to get 2 yellow corsi wrasses for this tank to munch the flatworms, plus they are pretty cool fish.

Thats it for the update, other than the monti everything is doing well.

It's kinda not really well made lol. I had to glue the cover on the outside part since it fell off pretty much when i first got it. But otherwise I feel I got my $22 worth. Much more convienent than the regular clips/.

Does it float if it comes off in the tank? I keep dropping mine when I bang into it with my mag cleaner.

It's pretty sturdy, have yet to have it fall off on the inside of the tank. If you hit it with the magfloat it will just move across the glass pretty much.
