i really cant speak as to their ease (or difficulty) of keeping, mainly because ive only had experience with 1. but i can say that i bought mine from LA when they were on sale (still are on sale, just not as low as when i got mine) and he took to pellets/frozen/ algae sheets as as easily as any other fish i have. he ate constantly and never turned food away. only thing i noticed is that purples tend to be a bit on the aggressive side when it coems to that family of tangs. as for the achilles, i would personally avoid them unless you have a larger tank, 200g+) thats very well established.

i must admit that you do have to contort your head to actually look down into the refugium, but still... ugh this hobby is stressful

hes not out of the weeds yet, when i woke up that morning and noticed him losing bouyancy, i felt the water, it was pretty cold. so i tossed him into the DT refugium because i had to leave for work. i watched him for a bit last night and hes still hiding in a lil cave he found and seems to be stable. jsut isnt eating like he normally does. but i figured thats due to the stress of the moves. thought about jsut putting him back into the DT but that would only make matters worse. good news though!!!1 as it sits right now, i should be ordering my leds AND the apex lite on monday!!! way too excited!!!

chinese 120w. i went back and forth between radions, Ai's, and the chinese lights. came down to the fact that this 125 isnt my final setup that im aiming for. within the next year to 2 years we will be moving into a bigger house. at which point ill be moving up to a 300-400g tank. thats when ill be buying radions and all the fancy equipment.

thinking about ordering 1-2 fixtures tonight. being that its Friday evening I don't know if ordering now will really save me much time versus ordering on Monday. plus if I can convince myself to wait till Monday, I should be able to order the lights, controller, and another wp40
