So here's an update. I had to rehome my cleaner shrimp after discovering he had a taste for my rfas. Not something I've seen happen often with cleaners, but apparently it's a thing. I caught him red-handed...twice. So he went back to the LFS.

However, in more of a positive update, my tank is definitely solid now. I've been keeping acros happy in it for a couple of months, so I decided it was time to make an order... and this came in the mail today from @FraghouseCorals!

Ouch! Dang bro, that sucks. I have never been lucky enough to own a bounce. I think I'd lose my mind if a cleaner killed one.

OMG!
I would have fried him and give it to my cats!
I was thinking to ask you a frag!

Yeah, Pancho
Daniel's right about getting some nasty cleaner shrimps... :(

That shroom has been long gone, friend

Chris Beggin bought the same guy's second huge wwc og shroom. The guy was leaving the hobby, from growing corals and selling their frags.

Got a good deal, but it was still a high-priced coral.

lol
If it's not a Harley, done with shrimps.

A couple of new additions. First up, my first acanthophyllia.

And then, I also picked up this little derasa.

Actually, I'm considering adding more flow (I currently have an MP40 on the back wall and an MP10 on the right side). I'm thinking of adding a gyre type powerhead. I'm still trying to decide which one to add. Any suggestions are welcome.
