    Someone needs to get a definition of Fadi's exempt tangs, apparently angel man's taste is slightly different to most normal people?! :p
    My little girl snuck in apparently! ;)

    Beautiful tank! I know it's a silly question, but are you still using Fritz salt mix?

    I am a guy who have spacial needs, I need to fill my tank with angels and wrasses , no place left for tangs, I only have 4 tangs, purple, yellow , hippo and blonde. I convince my self that all other tangs looks like rats because there is no place left to add more. LOL. FIY Hippo is starting to look more like a pig rather than a rat !!

    And my beautiful rat ;)

    Yes, Crabby

    It's coming in from TSM.

    Thanks and it's still a hard fish to pull off. How ever it goes, is going to be the way that it goes.

    Been on a pm with them since Nov. 19th. Pretty much burnt out.

    Hi Sandbox,
    Thanks for the compliment.

    I was going back to Fritz RPM, but they let some bad batches out.

    Been on the DD H2Ocean Pro+ mix for a pretty good while.
    The DD Pro mixes to the cal and alk that my cal reactor runs at.

    Have you been using Fritz?

    Thank you :) I’ve always used reef crystals, but I’m looking to switch for different parameters.

    The Red Sea "Blue Bucket" was great... :)
    I'd still be using it, but wanted to find a mix with a tad more cal and alk.

    The DD Pro / pretty much splits the Blue Bucket and the Red Sea Coral Pro / Black Bucket.

    Hey, Fadi
    It ships tonight for Saturday delivery.

    Have "ramp-up" the flow (for the Achilles) during the first of the week.

    Lol!!
    Bounce shroom went on a walk about (after the flow was ramp-up) and is at the back of the scape... :confused:

    I'm pretty sick... ;Nurse with a nasty head cold and hoping that @elisa h is a great Achilles tang whisperer.

    Hope all you guys are doing well!!

    Feel better soon! I hope the Achilles arrived safely today. I bet he will do great for you considering he is coming from tsm corals! I’m planning on making an order with them in the near future to start stocking my new reefer 350
