Thats too bad about the wrasse, I hate that, you have so many fish and then one day you realize you havent seen one in a while. I just realized my lawnmower blenny went missing from the 180g. :-( It's so sad but it does happen.

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

Yeah, it makes me wonder what happened. He was fat and always eating.

Mine too! And the tangs never gave it a second look so I have no idea either.

Well, I was doing maintenance today and noticed that my maxima clam had got stung by the hammer. Hopefully it'll recover, I moved it further away form the hammer.

Well, I came home from work today and the clam isn't going to make it. That hammer packs one heck of a punch. I will also be holding off on clams for quite some time, even though the derasa continued to do great.
I tested phosphates while looking at it, since it was a really hard day at work today, and they are sitting at .04 still. Because of the continued .04, I'm going to begin feeding 3 time a week and see how things are.

Well, I just should have acted when I saw how quickly the hammer was starting to extend is all. It's on me, sadly. But, like I said, derasa is still a monster.

Well, maintenance day! I tested phosphates as this is the end of the month and GFO. Very obvious it had been used up. They tested at .13. It is also of note I have been feeding almost every other day this week.
So, the GFO has been switched out with Phosguard again. Tested at .17 after water change...must have been bubbles in the tube. Either way, testing will continue as the Phosguard works.
I also recharged the Seachem 'Purigen'...name is currently escaping me and replaced it in the reactor.
Things continue to look good. The derasa is looking amazing as is my coco worm. Blue symphodium continues to grow like a weed, not really caring if there is rock to grow on or not.
On an unrelated note, I read a short article about there being copepods in NYC's drinking water. That's kinda neat.
