All fish in

Here’ some more pics.

P. Saulosi floating





And a few tank shots









So far 3 fish have found their way into the sump via the overflow and have all been rescued. I have to go get some block filter foam and cover the overflows for a couple weeks until they get big enough!!

Added the block foam over the overflow slots. The same fish keeps making his way into the sump, one of the makokolas I think!! I've found him there 3 times and the owner has twice. No more hopefully. Test the water, Ammonia 0 Nitrite 0 Nitrate 20 Alkalinity 3.8, so have to work on raising that. Right now there's only 5 lbs of crushed coral in the sump, I got a bigger bag for the other 10 lbs and I'm going to move the pump in the sump to another area and position the CC for better flow-through, hopefully that will bring it up. Shooting for 8.0.

The fish are very lively and friendly, especially the Saulosi, the race right to where you are and follow you around, and the little ones come up to see what all the fuss is about. I'm going to have a fun time counting them next time I have a chance to see if there have been any losses, but other than the Yellow Labs getting picked on a bit (and they don't seem any worse) everyone looks fine.

Looks pretty sweet Floyd. Nice job. If only the SW tank was as easy as this one.

Looks fantastic. Don't know how I missed this thread (must not have had it auto-send me an email)!

Well the Saulosi's are breeding like mad, at one point 4 of them were holding, now there's at least 3 or 4 fry in the tank and 2 in the sump, they hide pretty well. The rest are growing out nice, owner does all the PWCs so I just check them out every once in a while. Will have pics soon, the last batch didn't turn out so well. Added the rest of a 15lb bag of CC to the sump and some carbon until I get a batch of Purigen to replace it. Still planning on the bigger pump, but that's about it for now. Maybe a few silk plants or something....

What do you mean by the last batch not turning out well? And you are now using carbon? Did you mini-cycle?

New pics...

Tank is doing well, time to get a pleco though, starting to get some algae growth on the rocks and glass - brown diatom.

There have been a couple fish death, mainly the female Saulois that are holding. I guess I need to learn how to strip them. There are about 4 fry living in the sump along with the 15lb of crushed coral!!

The owner does a pretty good job of doing weekly 50% PWCs. After about 2 months with fish in the tank, Nitrates are around 10-15.
