    Few more live stock..

    I took tiny size juvenile klein's butterflyfish,
    He ate all gsp but not touching ricordea corals.

    I know butterflyfish should never kept in 16gal but he's less than inch, smaller than clown fish
    Seems happy so far and healthy so I decided to keep for at least 4 months.

    Also I have yellow watchman goby as well..

    Now it's time to put more frags and that's it for live stock

    Do you think bioload is way too overloaded?

    I do 40% water change every 8 days 10% ~20%change for 4 days.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Cool scape. Sometimes I regret not just keeping it simple with my life support like this.

    Sad and good news!

    One little clown died
    I checked my water parameters...
    temperature, salinity..
    Nothing was wrong..

    He was eating little, not active compare to the big one.. that was only bad sign.

    Also bigger clown was biting the small one to death when I got home. I separated with flow in container and then next day he died ..

    I researched lot and seems like it was swim bladder disease..

    Oh well

    Good news is I added some xenia, and torch.

    Green star polys are actually doing good now
    (Thought Klein's butterflyfish ate the tips)

    And everything seems ok

    Hopefully I add some hammer coral and some zoanthid corals soon
