Was scrolling through some old pictures and was kind of shocked about some of the growth in the 8-11 months. The before pictures all come from September - December of 2018, and the after pictures are generally from July-August 2019.

Realized that October 9th marked one year that I had my Powder Blue Tang. Spent some time trying to get a picture of it, it didn't go well. Here's the best I could get:

I have no complaints with mine I got him from a local reefer on Oct 9, 2018. He was in a holding tank for a bit then my 125 until the 750 went up I have him, a sailfin, purple, yellow scopas, and a kole along with several other fish and it's pretty calm.

I wouldn't say he's mean or even that aggressive but he appears to maybe be the alpha. When I added the last fish the PBT checked them out the first day, then the sailfin bothered the new guy some on days 2 & 3 but then it was over. So I think the sailfin wants to be beta. The sailfin gets a little cranky when the lights are about to go out but once everybody finds their spots/caves and he gets his he calms down.

And most people that see my tank think the PBT is the neatest fish they also think it's Dory though...

New blue coral (in the front) looks really blue to my eyes, looks a bit more purple in the picture.

Looks awesome!!

Remember to contact Red Sea for your 750xxl reinforcement kit, ive been reminding people as I see the threads pop up.
Thanks. I got an email from them and I went to the provided link and filled out the support request as instructed back on 10/3. Don't think I've gotten anything since but I imagine they're working their way down the list.

Upgraded with a booster pump and 150 gpd kit to see if I can waste a bit less water. Would like to route the waste water out to the yard if I wasn’t chicken to put a hole in the house. Also wish I had matching barrels now that I have a larger tank.
