Pics of the Grouper and a Trigger are above.

Here are the others. Sorry for the awful quality. It is terrible lighting and using my phone...

Wow. What a catch! And free just sweetens the deal. That guy took good care of those fish it appears. What size of tank did you pick up form him?

They were originally in a custom 400g . He sold that and put them in a 120 about a month ago. All of them are thick and healthy.

Free is good. I was considering a Sailfin and Porcupine Puffer in the original gameplan, so that was a score. The two Sailfins are kinda cool just because they get along and they are big, so I will scratch another Tang off the original gameplan list to accommodate these two. The Desjardini is gorgeous when all puffed up. I'm just hoping they all make it and that I can add other fish later that will not get harassed. This is not ideal stocking order, but we will see how it goes.

Well, the sad news of the day was that the Sailfin did not make it. When this guy was trying to catch one if the other fish, the Grouper knocked a big chunk of liverock over onto this Tang and it muscled/wriggled out from under it. I think damage was done. It seemed okay, but was not moving around like the Desjardini was. It really stinks to lose that Tang.

I did get the Grouper to the LFS after quite the struggle to get it out. Looked like I took a shower by the time I was done.

In an unexpected move, I decided to keep the Huma Huma Trigger...at least for now. I still think I am going to get a Blue Jaw down the road, but my original plans always change when a fish grabs me.

I did a 25g water change earlier and am going to add the Desjardini and the Valentini into the 240g tonight and move the Porc into the slightly larger QT tank.

I just realized that it is later than I thought it was. Looks like the fish are tucked in for the night, so I guess they go in tomorrow.

I got everyone into the tank yesterday. I added the Porcupine Puffer too. I figured keeping him in the smaller tanks was going to cause stress. Threw some shrimp in this morning and everyone (Toby puffer, Huma Huma and Porc) went crazy. The Desjardini Tang is still hanging out in the rocks most of the time, but I have seen it come out a couple times. Any movement in the room and it dives for the rocks .

I also added a couple of Zoa frags (King Midas and Flamin' Punk Rockers) to the island on the right side of the tank. I might add a few more basic corals/mushrooms over time, but nothing too difficult. Eventually, the 45g is going to become a reef in our bedroom and it will all get moved into that.

Looking good. Glad the majority of the fish made it. I think I lost my naso die to a falling rock,it happens.....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
