Bristle worms are a great addition to the CUC.

It's about a 3 inch long worm. I guess I'll keep him

As for the sun coral - you will have to target feed each individual polyp all the time to make sure it lives. You'll probably want to try to train it to open during the day. Otherwise it'll only open at night at starve. It's a non-photosynthetic coral, meaning it doesn't get food from the sun.
Put a bottle over him and shoot the food into that then remove it in a bit

Nice pcs.!!
Fat heads are expensive... My LFS had a 4-5 head one for $120!!!
I've had a Tubastrea, about the same size for close to a year now. I feed it PE Mysis & gut-loaded brine every other day, only way to keep it alive. I would suggest that you shelter it from any direct light, I understand that direct light can adversely effect them.

I lost a mini colony of purple acropora well losing. Some diatoms on the sand but other than that not too much going on. Just growth!

I've been giving thought about starting to dose vodka to help with the diatoms and a little cyano in my sump. I've read a lot of good and bads about it. What are your opinions?

So I also have been thinking of getting 2 more fish. A powder blue(juvenile) and an Achilles tang(4"). I do already have 3 tangs but I feel like I have some room to add.

Some thoughts on this ?
