A whole back I messed up and got a Domino Damsel. I knew they were territorial but he is ridiculous. If he demanded 1/4 of the tank, that would be one thing, but he wants 90%. He was giving my two Chromis heck. So I bought 6 more Chromis, that way he will tire himself out before he tires one of them out as they school. Don't get a Domino as read more later it suggested an 80 gallon or more tank for a single Domino.

He doesn't look at mean. He is very fast and tries to nip are. I don't see any torn fins. Maybe he is just head butting everyone.

Recently picked up a long spine urchin, a Red Sea star and Starry Night Blenny. Acclimating a tuxedo urchin right now.

Recently added phos guard to my canister filter to help me deal with my cyano problems.

I don't think my starfish made it. :( But Urchins rule. They are fun to look at.

Acclimating 2 chromis, one trocus snail and a foxface rabbit fish. The foxface looks uber stressed right now, just being taken out of the bag. Hope he is not a 28 dollar mistake.

I love mine. They look like little piles of rubble walking around. One of mine wore a mushroom as a hat for months.

I just caught up on your tank build.It is amazing what you have done over the last several months.I am sorry about your loses;however,it seems your tank and its inhabitants are doing well and I am green with envy :D I think my favorite part of your tank next to the fish is your diy lr!

Recent livestock updates. Added tiger pistol shrimp and tiger watchman goby, coral beauty angel and skunkback pseudochromis. I like how the small fish like the cover of the Purple Nepthea. It grows fast. I am willing to trade some frags of it if anyone is interested.
