It's been slow going since I added them. Super slow. Slower than literally everything else. But there's been progress, every time the urchin pulled up the purple and I went to replace it I could see encrusting on the bottom side (I finally glued it in). They just all insisted on taking the long route I guess. My very old one I had in the 20 (and lost :() took a really long time to start to scroll, it had to be encrusted a certain amount first, once it satisfied that need it took off in growth, I'm hoping these 3 follow that pattern. The other two I put pictures up of one is just an encruster, I have no idea what the other one does - it was a freebie.
I just have the one monti and it was my first sps. It did literally nothing for 4 months and then went 80% white over the course of a week! I was pretty sure it was a goner. As a last ditch effort I moved it to high light and flow and in a week got its colours back and took off. It’s probably grown 2 inches in the last month, both up and out.
when they’re happy they’re happy I guess!

New filefish has to go :mad: :(:rolleyes:
I think there was recent thread about eating fish from your tank? Maybe fry it up real quick? Kidding and that sucks.

Apparently I have to stand guard until the tank lights go off and he goes to bed so I can net him and stick them in the sump.

They did NOT want to leave the lens view. The top one kept swimming directly in front of what I was trying to photo.

Tank looks great!

Foxy was here yesterday morning, missing as of last night. No body. If he/she jumped through the feeding opening of the lid there's no body nearby either. :rolleyes: icing on the cake that was yesterday.

Was hoping I'd see them out this morning but nothing still.

Still no foxy evidence :(

I checked all the Marine Betta's fav hideouts and only found him & my lantern basslet skulking about.

Still no body either, and no detectable uptick in levels.

Any chance he jumped. They are skittish fish.
I looked around briefly. I plan to investigate further this evening. Only opening in the lid is the small feeding window for the autofeeder.

Any way it could have ended up in the overflow?
