Just a little update on the FOWLR. jawfish (Bubbles) and Firefish (pinky) are still peacefully sharing a burrow. The jawfish has crEated a large valley and hill near the opening cuz she keeps taking shells and sand from Everywhere and piling them around the burrow. But that's fine, cuz there no corals to bury. It's pretty cute, really.
We were at the LFS and saw a couple of red chromis, which I hadn't seen before. They were beautiful, but I couldn't find much info on them. We bought one. He's super bright red with a bright blue stripe. He's still being shy and races away rally fast from me, so can't get any good pic of mine, but here's a pic I found online of one exactly like him. He's really tiny, only about 1/2" from nose to tail.

We added him yesterday, and he's already eaten brine and the NLS pellets. Daughter named him Freddy (as in Ready Freddy- cuz he's red). The fish all seem to get along with him fine, even the angel. haven't noticed any chasing or nipping at him. Hope he fares better than the clown goby! He was already in a tank at the LFS with a Firefish, clown and a coral beauty angel (mines a half-black angel), so he should be used to most of his tank mates type. Fingers crossed!
Thanks for taking the time to read this!

He's so pretty! He's been playing in the current of the PH. Haha. It's a 500gph PH and he's so tiny, it's funny.

what type/brand of algae sheets do you feed your Half Black? I've been putting in a 3 inch sheet everyday but my Lemon Peel doesn't seem to pay attention to it.

I use Ocean Nutrition with garlic. It's in there about 30 seconds and he attacks it.

Thank you!! Of course he's in the damsel family, but the angel (the boss) will keep him in check if he tries anything when he gets bigger!! Lol.

Okay, I was under the impression that zebra hermits were supposed to be nicer than others and stay small-ish. My husband bought a turbo snail, which I have no interest in having, but I put in the FOWLR. I know that all crabs are opportunistic, but the turbo was not small at all, and the one zebra hermit killed the turbo and took his shell. There are LOTS of various sizes of shells around the tank, so it couldn't have been a need for the shell. And I thought they stayed small, but I apparently have the Arnold Schwarzenegger of zebra hermits cuz he's way bigger than the others. Haha. Was I misinformed about them staying small-ish?
