Incoming sometime this week: new filefish.

In the old filefish's absence and my vacation, the aiptasia has come back with a vengeance :rolleyes:

(There's like 3 spots in the tank which are absolutely unsightly IMO -- Matt can't spot them though so at least there's that)

No one local has one, and the mag my LFS has is pretty big so I'm ordering a bb filefish and bb foxface lo from Reef Beauties to arrive this week. As much as I'd love to find a mag, I'm concerned the tangs will bully it if it's too close to their size initially. I'm also concerned it'll have the urge to monch things it shouldn't if it's older.

All my chunks seem recovered from sharing their space with the cocoworm earlier in the month.

Worm was definitely the problem. It's out of the way now and can't cause any new conflicts.

Mose looking much better since my vacation return. (Ignore that ring, it's the urchins, I have to go in and move it today)

My new addition is still a little nervous to join the fray

I loved watching your progress. I'm jumping from a 55g to a 120g. Looking forward to making a build thread for that and tracking progress. Oh, I'm so jealous of your husbands ability. If I tried that the stand would collapse. lol

I love it. Are all those meat corals touching?

All my acanthos, the trachy, and the plate pile up, no matter how often I pull them apart. The only one who's shown irritation is the lobo so he's way on the other side of the tank now. Cynarina are in the center because they like more light - also piled up.

New lid arriving Tuesday. Picked up some salt (blasphemy) for the mct & I'm waiting on a 5 micron sock to do a sump deep clean on this tank. Probably do a tiny water change with that to get everything that's made its way through. Hoping to get that knocked out Tuesday or Wednesday. Photos of the new lid once it arrives.

I don't think she could ever run out of salt. If you need some, head over to the tank cade, should be enough salt Creep there to mix for 100 water changes.

Pups good, passed the 10wks, acting like nothing happened.

I picked up a sinus infection in VA (i think) so I'm feeling rough but still truckin through with work all weekend. No days off until Wednesday.

Believe it or not, there's not a lot of salt creep on this tank - especially compared to what I experienced with the 90 I had prior.

Any idea what’s causing the salt creep
