Somewhere between redoing my rocks and today...lost my 6 line. *SOBS* Just like my male clown..poof, he pulled a Keyser Soze. Hopefully he's just hiding and shows up later..if not. BOOOOOO WAAAAA

Anyway, getting my shipment of Torches from @UltraRainbowCorals.com. tomorrow. Pretty excited!! Will be posting tomorrow.
Found him. Jumped out of the tank. Shame..i liked him. Now he is just a little dehydrated fish stick.

Every six line I’ve ever had has jumped out of a tank and ended up a fish stick.
Any recommendations for a fish that is as active, doesnt hide behind the rock scape and isnt a suicide risk?

I have a lowboy, my flame hawk does great, I don’t have any issues with my six line either but a lot do. My sapphire damsel does great too.

I’ve had really good luck with Midas blenny they have great personality swim like an eel so looks cool but not always in water colum he is always back and forth from his hole in rock all day. Otherwise I’d say yellow coris wrasse one of my other favorites which is much more active then blenny always out and about zipping around the tank and most peaceful fish I’ve owned.

One of the two new fish i got is a Midas blenny. The only part I see of him is the top of his head to the bottom of his eyes. I haven't seen him swim around. The other fish I got is the Rainforest goby. He usually hangs out under a rock edge. I saw him this morning at 1 AM before going to bed. No site of him this morning. Hope the "clicking" sound fish didn't kill him.

I already have a two spot. All things I have read is that two blenny's is bad (not crossing streams, Ghost busters bad..but still bad). Gonna see what Aquarium Center NJ has in stock today. Might actually go tang and annoy the tang police.

Remember ACC moved. Is Aquarium Center different then ACC?
Yes. Aquarium Center is in Blackwood / Clementon. Pretty decent place. Ok selection of fish, corals and equipment. The only other reasonable option i have is the Hidden Reef but had a bad experience there once so only go sporadically Both about 25 minutes away.

The clicking sound is probably a pistol shrimp. Rainfordi gobies are shrimp gobies so they may have actually paired up if you have a hidden pistol in there. Could be a mantis though...?

Here is my next installment of the @noopsyche Record your Reef Event. A couple of things:

1. I ended up redoing my rockwork. I wasn't a fan of how far 'torch point' stuck out so I moved one of the rocks underneath my overflow and pushed torch point back a little.
2. I pulled my duncan from the back right corner and put in my nano. It has been unhappy since my dino outbreak so I am hoping it recovers.
3. I did a little bit of rework on where many of my torches, duncans, hammers, spawns and Zoas were. I am still flushing out Torch point with my new shipment from @UltraRainbowCorals.com so maybe a few more moves by my next video..but liking how things are starting to progress.
4. Two of my remaining SPS appear to be going through STN. You can see the color going from the bottom up. :(
5. I did a major scrubbing with a tooth brush and got rid of MOST of my residual GHA and dinos. Still a little in there..but thing looks great. It does appear that I need some 'intra rock' water movement. A little too much detritus in the dead spots.
6. Finally, I'm a new dad. My BTA decided to do a 2 fer 1 split. I go to sleep with one nem, I wake up and I gotz me too dem nems!! Woot Woot

Anyway, here's the video. One day I might have the courage to narrate:

Anenome went walkabout. Trying to keep them on one rock. Tell, doesn’t this look like Mr T with pink hair. (Nose and mouth to the right). Off colored beard.

Green outline is the face.
Yellow is the eye
Red is the nose
white is the mouth
pink is the hair with the anenome being the mohawk and the part under the ear.
