Perfect, I'm really glad it worked for you. The sps are doing great, algae is slowing down, the new chalice had it's feeder tentacles out today, things are looking up.

One thing though, the wrasse has disappeared, I haven't seen it in 3 days. I think he jumped but I'm still looking. I'm not as sad with this one as I was with the Blenny, I might get another fish sooner than I was expecting.. Of course if money permits and the tank is happy

I have both a cat and a dog.. The car is really fat and I doubt I would even budge if it saw the fish on the ground but my dog would have rolled in it and we had to give her a bath yesterday because she stunk.. Maybe.

Thanks! I'm really hoping that this will be the last big bump with the tank, my wallet can't take much more.. The hawk has been amazing. I have a friend who likes to stare him down. The hawk actually gets up to the front of the glass and just stares at him back lol. I've also got him eating when my hand is really close to him, he will be perching on my hand soon I hope. Who says fish can't do tricks?!

Yeah, yorkies are great, I used to have a smaller dog, a fist (pronounced fIste).. It was psychotic though lol. I'll only do bigger dogs from now on, labs are great.

The flame is my favorite, just a really cool fish. The black around its eyes makes it look crazy lol. I'm thinking of what fish I could add if I do get one, maybe the midas? I'm not sure if they would have a bigger bioload than a wrasse.. Of course this is if the wrasse is actually gone and my tank is looking great.
