    Thanks!!!

    Here's what we got:

    Brought in a cleaner shrimp and a Blue Streak Wrasse from DD (WYSIWYG)

    They are well and the Blue Streak eats LRS.

    The Achilles is a wonderful specimen from @tsm corals
    Ray,
    Thanks for your help and running a great QT program. The Achilles is beautiful!!

    Everything is chill with all the fish. A little flashing at the start, but no where near fighting or tail spearing.

    (lol)
    Blue Streak cleaned the Regal / Purple and Achilles... :D

    We need to give the Achilles more time. When it starts to peck on live rock, then we'll try nori.
    It's just chilling and we will take it one day at a time.

    It's still a long ways to go, but looks good for day one.

    :)

    Day one sounds like it went really well for you and the tank inhabitants.

    That’s always great to hear!

    I sure love the stance of the the Reefer 350.. ;Woot ;Woot

    The Achilles came in great and you sure can't beat TSM

    I talked to Brain at Reefwise. He's the one that sold us the Regal.
    He not doing any online sales right now, but it looks like TSM is at a higher level.

    Weather the Achilles makes it or not. TSM sure does a great job.

    (lol)
    Angelia made chilli and took some night time Nyquil gel caps, about an hour ago... ;Wacky

    Anirban.

    Going by length and tear drop size:

    It's "in-between" this...

    And this...

    Small, but big enough to hold it's own to the Purple.

    Well Guys,
    The Achilles past away on Tuesday... :(
    Really did not get it going, but it was an Achilles.

    (lol)
    Kinda got that out of my system to try another.

    Rest of reef is doing well... :)

    Forgot how fun it is to have Blue Streak Wrasse. First one since the 1990's.

    Just sitting back and enjoying the S-400 and cruising along with regular maintenance.

    Pretty much it for the weekly update.

    :)

    Sorry to hear about the Achilles, beautiful fish. It is on my list of must haves! I never seen any at my lfs's. The Blue Streak is also awesome, my wife and I finally seen one during our travels in the Pheonix area!

    Thanks Jay,
    If you can get an Achilles on their feet, they are truly a beautiful fish.

    I've had one, and it was my favorite of all time.
