Added six line wrasses to the two frag tanks today. Always seem to have one of those in each reef tank I keep.

I wanted to add another fish to build my BB up more and I've always had great success with those. Many talk of them being aggressive but I've never experienced it. Even tho they are grow out tanks I need to have some movement lol.

I hear that. I never had issues with my 6 line either. Once the Royal Gramma killed it and the chalk bass it mellowed out too.

The six line in the top frag is very pretty. The one in the 55 gal is hard to photo still lol.

Pic of the Kenya trees opening up well too

So when I sell live sand I put the lid on, pull it out, and put it back it doesn't cloud the tank.

Tank looks phenomenal.

Do you know when you well start selling? You've got your bank account all set up and everything? I know you said you got your paperwork straight

Thanks! I do have all my paperwork (sellers permit, business bank account, wholesale accounts, & fed tax id) except my business license from the city. Sent the info electronically and when my wife called to follow up they said they needed it mailed lol so that hasn't come back yet. Have some equipment for sale now but I plan on taking a trip next month to a wholesaler near me and stocking up on livestock & then I should be ready.

Ok so the birdsnest frag seems to be doing fine! All the softies I threw in there also fine! This weekend I'm gonna move some more of my SPS frags (more birdsnest & some spongnodes) and next month I will go to the wholesaler and pick up some corals. Slow but steady lol.
