I put the Sailfin Tang and Green Bird Wrasse in this morning. The Purple was initially upset about the new Tang but seems to have cooled off now. I figure the Wrasse will hide out for a while.

Someone has a 4-5" Passer Angel on CL right now for $45 so I'm tempted to grab that if its still around next weekend. Not one of my original choices but they are beautiful fish.

Congrats! I'm glad the Tangs are behaving now, so relieving once they decide to get along! Salfins and Purples are absolutely stunning!

The Green Bird Wrasse is out cruising around and the Sailfin is hiding out. I think the Purple has him spooked.

I had the last couple weeks off and finally got around to switching this tank over to LED. I used four Tao (two real with all the colors and two blue/white knockoffs). I love the look of the knockoff blue/white but do not like the red in the others. I have them alternating now, but may move them so that those are on both ends. I'm considering adding some anemones just to have a little life and movement on the rocks.

I also swapped out the ancient Top Fathom skimmer I had for a Bubble Magus Nac 6 that I got from a recent tank breakdown. The old one was not working well in recent months, so I figured this one will at least grab more, even though it is rated for smaller. I have a second that I may add if parameters start to go south.

The fish are all doing well. I'm hoping to get a fish or two this weekend, but am not sure what they will be. Hoping for a large angel and a wrasse, but leaving it up to fate. I'm also picking up some eBay winnings for the 60g cube. Rastas, Blue Agaves, Space Queens and LA Lakers. Also going to try a pink gonipora too.

Got one fish...

http://i1244.photobucket.com/albums/...9DB28D16C3.jpg

It arrived at the LFS a couple months ago with only one eye. They said it looked and acted fine but treated it anyways. I've always wanted a Scribbled Angel and am a sucker for rescue fish. This guy was doing fine, but I felt bad that nobody wanted him. They gave me a great deal, so I'm happy.

Thanks. I've always wanted one, but they are hard to come by (and expensive). This one was just at the right place at the right time and at the right price. The single eye does not seem to bother this fish, which is great. It really is a stunning fish in person. The pictures don't do it justice.

Well...bad news...woke up this morning and found the Scribbled dead. It had been eating and looked and acted fine. I hate losing fish like this. I think I will try another Angel and consider another Scribbled as the final addition down the road.

That's too bad. I lost my wartskin angler the same way. He was eating on Thursday, and was dead on Friday.
