    Some new fish that came in today hanging out in QT.

    Golden Butterflyfish and majestic angel. I was supposed to be getting a scribbled angel as well but the wholesaler goofed on the order. It'll be in next week.

    Both fish were eating within 5 minutes out of the bags and don't care at all about my creepy wandering presence on the other side of the glass

    Nice looking fish. I've never seen the scribbled angelfish before, I had to google what they look like. They look pretty neat.

    Thanks! Yeah, I really wanted a bandit but then realised I didn't win the lottery this year so I opted for the consolation prize, a scribbled.

    I saw him nibble at some mysis the other day. Still more of a rock grazer but he's super fat so eating good off the rocks for now.

    Ty, I'm thinking about changing out my Fiji pink sand because I'm tired of it blowing around. Your sand looks big enough so it doesn't happen. Do you know what type of sand you have?

    Oh man, you have to use Tropic Eden Reefflakes. It's the best sand you can get. Won't blow around, small enough that burrowers can still use it, and comes so clean you don't have to hardly even rinse it.

    It'll be the sand I'll use on any tank now and in the future.

    Thanks, that was the sand I was looking to get. I will order some tonight and probably swap it out with a big water change.
