It definitely was a great score, Autumn !! I got it from my buddy who is mentoring me in the right direction so far. I never thought SW could be as easy as FW.

I believe it is bribo. He never mentioned ever doing an upgrade of any kind. Tank was only used about for months total. Maybe the photo will help ? Click image for larger version

Yup stock lights, but 24 watt not 36 sorry lol. Should be fine for softies and lps. I've heard of people keeping montipora under them as well but they may be an experiment haha

Ha ha !!! I get it now. Hmm.... I see an upgrade in the future. Possibly very near future as good lighting promotes better environments !! And more frags !!!

So a 14-15 hour update. At light shutoff last night, the Pistol became like a party animal. Shut the white off and with just the blue and moon on, he shot out of his spot and was dashing around. Woke up this morning and the sand is no longer flat and level across the bottom. Big drifts all over the place !!! He was quite busy, lol !!! I know it's currently in the same hole the Goby was last seen so they may have met up at some point.

I was trying to decide placement of the frag and didn't glue it yesterday. Well one of the snails crawled upon it and both were on the sand. I've replaced it already to another spot and within ten minutes it's opening back up.

I like the idea of all non aggressive items until I can setup my (freebie) 70g bow front next July. Now if I could only get the dogs to stop running around for a bit so I can find the Goby 😳😜

First SW Nano

I love my blue dot watchman. He may not have the prettiest color, but his personality is amazing. His fins are a midnight blue and it's just awesome when he swims around to eat. His shiny blue dots are pretty cool. The color behind him, just like yours and I'm not quite sure what to call it. Kinda greenish greyish stripes in some places.
At first he wasn't a very active fish, but now he's all over the place. The only problem I've had with him is when he ate a Stomatella snail in the tank. He is really peaceful and sometimes I'll catch him kind of hovering in the middle of the tank. As if he were levitating. It's pretty cool.

I can't wait for it to get really settled in here. Only about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2" at this point and not too colored up yet. I'm looking forward to this being a great experience and for now just the K.I.S.S. method. Figuring a couple days to a week before they get used to a home setting and out of their "getting stared at" they were so used to environment.
