I found a Clarkii from a lfs next town over. It was returned as I was too aggressive for the previous owner. He's been in the tank since Saturday and there has been much aggressiveness among the 3 fish. But now everybody seems to have settled down. Now that there are 3 bullies in the tank everybody has been much calmer.

Glad it has seemed to work out for you. Equal aggressiveness does usually work out for the best.
Good luck moving forward!

Here's a water test I just did. Both are API test kits with manufacture dates within 2 months. Higher is from std test kit and lower is from reef test kit. I'm assuming higher is right and working to reduce trates.
Caution to all

That happens to me! My API saltwater standard kit gives an accurate consistent reading on nitrates, and the reef test kit gives 0 ppm nitrate every time. Makes me wonder how accurate the other tests in the reef test kit are.
