Be careful what you wish for! Lol

Coralline can be a blessing and a curse.
Very impressed with your tank.
I've never glued anything just put it next to a rock, etc. and it just grew right onto it after a bit. You can always move it later. ;)

I found 2 more nudis on my zoas yesterday evening and was able to remove both from the tank. I put all of my zoas through a Melafix dip today and had a few more hitchhikers come off; I belive a couple more small nudis and 2 worm-like creatures.

I can’t remember your stocking. Any room for any of these? If you were closer I’d lend you my sixline.

I've got room for a six-line and this has really got me re-considering it. I was fairly settled on a pink streaked but can't find one so...
In over 18 years of reefing I’ve almost always had a sixline. Never had a problem. Added bonus Ive never seen a flat worm in any of my tanks and it would be almost impossible to never have one hitchhike in.

Are the wiggly worm-like creatures in the video flat worms?

Hmm... My wife has been asking me what I want for my birthday.

I can’t see anything that looks like flat worms but Happy Birthday! Are you planning on going anywhere special for your first legal adult beverage?

And they really are beautiful! I had one in my AOI 26 gal.

They don’t pop from across the room but up close they are the most colorful fish in my tank and has at least five different colors.

They are beautiful fish! My main LFS always has them; only reason I've avoided it was the reputation. Did you have any issues with yours in the 26g?
When I joined R2R I was shocked by all the negativity. Every type of fish can have one go rogue. I almost feel like someone posted about one that went rogue and became a nightmare and it has just been repeated.

I only had the 2 clowns, a watchman goby/pistol shrimp in with him. He bullied the goby initially, but settled down. It was my first tank, setup during lockdown, and I only had the tank 8 months before moving.

But Kev is all you need for proof based on his experience
