Purple Firefish and more!

Today I went wild! (sorta)

after months of searching locally, I finally got my purple firefish. I also purchased 8 asteria snails and 2 medium red legged hermits to help with my algea problem.

here's hoping everything goes well!!!!

p.s. how long can I expect the firefish to hid in my rock before he gets comfortable and comes out???
