So it's been awhile and I figured I'd update the thread. I did a head count yesterday and realized the evil goby was missing. I had seen him the night before so I wasn't really too worried. So I went about my business, I am having a reef club meeting at my place on Saturday so I was cleaning like a banshee. lol Go to clean under the tv stand and yep, you guessed it, the evil goby was under there, a few feet from the tank. :-(
As if that wasn't bad enough, after more cleaning under there we found the remains of the long lost clown fish that mysteriously disappeared about 6 months ago. :-(
Bummer day, but at least now i know the tank didn't gobble up the fish, and there was a logical explanation why they died/disappeared.
This brings me to wonder what I can add to this tank that won't jump. I have ruled out more clown fish and no more bottom/rock dwellers like the evil goby since I still have a pink spotted watchman and the lawnmower blenny. I'm thinking of getting a melranus wrasse for the flatworms and cause they look cool and maybe some more blue reef chromis or another female anthias. I know the chromis and the anthias will be ok in this tank just wanted some more variety. lol
Otherwise the tank is doing well, the copperband is still eating very well and the tangs are getting big and fat. lol
The only other bad thing is the aipastia issue I now/still have. The display tank is completely clear of them BUT the overflow is infested and now the refugium has them. I can take the overflow off and soak it to kill those but the refugium is another story. I was thinking maybe now is the time to empty the refugium and just get rid of it. It has a bunch of rocks, chaeto and maybe 15lbs of sand.
So what do you guys think? I'm kinda at a crossroads and any and all input or opinions are more than welcome. As a side note I do not and have not ever had any algae issues with this tank in any way so I don't think taking out the refugium would be a big deal.
Sorry for the long post, but you know me, I just get carried away sometimes. At least i didn't post a 100 pictures today! LOL
