Update:

Finally put in my first additions

1 aiptasia demolishing peppermint shrimp!!
1 ninja star snail
4 regular snails (forgot name)

So far they're doing a great job. The pep shrimp absolutely destroyed 3 small aiptasia the first two nights and the snails cruise around all over.

My sand is looking a little dirty and discoloured. Is it gobys that filter the sand?? The snails will burrow and move around the sand bed but it doesn't look like theyre doing a whole lot.

The ninja star snail is awesome he cruises all over the glass and looks awesome.

Looks good. Nassaris snails are good for stirring sand. As far as gobies I know the diamond gobies sift through it well. I personally use the nassaris snails myself and the occasional manual hand stirring before a water change.

Nice! I bought a coral beauty a few months ago.. Unfortunately it didn't make it, I think it was my fault.. Didn't acclimate properly want to try again though now that I know to acclimate it properly. Beautiful fish!

Bummer sorry to hear that.

Do you have other fish that are doing ok??

Just wanna make sure its not your water conditions that caused the loss.

I did the float method and this sheila did great. Seems very happy and comfortable.

Does anyone know if the color changes at all with maturity??

The coral beauties are just that... beautiful. I wanted one, well it was between that and a cherub, but I chose corals instead. Angel fish aren't reef safe just remember that when your thinking of buying that awesome coral for 50 bucks! Don't do it! LOL. I've heard some cases where they never mess with them but I wouldn't take the chance. Nice fish though!
