This was the 1st time I ever bought fish online. These were from Divers Den. They were qt'ed before I got them, but I qt'ed them for another 14 days including a 7 day Prazipro treatment I did while I had them in qt.
The 3 fish cost a total of $164 shipped. My LFS sells Bartlett's anthias for $50 each...so these really were only $5 more each.

So Im not saying it looks bad in your tank just is it something I can be cleaning off of mine when it grows there or will I have to leave it be? thanks! and great tank
You can scrape off the coralline if you want. I don't mind it on my back glass, plus I would have to use a scraper to get it off. I can't reach the entire back of my tank if I tried with a MagFloat. I also don't want to accidentally frag the corals while trying to clean the back glass.

I feed pretty heavy at least 2x/day and sometimes 3-4 times on weekends when I'm hanging around the house.
