@Small triggers thank you for checking out my thread

The yellow acans look fantastic.
Thank you. Acans have been struggling along with other lps. Month ago I started feeding reef roids and they seem to be loving it.

Beautiful Don. Love the Radiant.
Thank you. Fingers crossed it works out.

That is a gorgeous fish. What app are you talking about? What phone do you use?
Thank you. The app is called aquarium cam. It cost a few dollars but we’ll worth it. I hit the button that auto pics what color filter to remove the blue.
I Have an iPhone but think they also have an android app.

Been very busy to keep up on everyone’s build thread. Today I got to visit a few threads and figured I’ll update mine before going to bed.

Stopped at local LFS hoping to find a couple fish that is not aggressive but can hold is own with all the others that are not the nicest fish in my tank.
Decided to try a Radiant wrasse and the choice seems like it may work. Lineatus and pintail have been very patient with the new guy in their chill spot but give a friendly warning that radiant is over staying his welcome.

Here is some crappy pictures until new guy settles in and I’m not stressing him with the camera

Tonight is the first time I got to feed and see the Radiant wrasse since getting her. New wrasse was first in line to eat and wasn’t scared to defend his food from the Tomini that was to big for either fish to eat. When Tomini pushed the Radiant turned and gave the Tomini a warning. Radiant is smaller then the others but holds her own.
It has been a battle with wrasse up to this point and I hope it stays positive in the future.
Time to figure out what fish are next.
It’s been a struggle keeping NO3 after removing PBT.

Hope to have time for pictures soon

Thanks Scurvy for your knowledge on the Radiant she seems to be the perfect fish for my tank.

Thanks my friend!

It really is. Never saw one in person so didn’t realize how beautiful they are. So far perfect balance of peaceful but ready to throw down when needed

Yes that is the one. Guess I should have linked for you but I’m not very good at the electronics yet lol.
No worries. I am gonna try the app. Watch for a slew of not so crappy iPhone pictures on my thread, and maybe spam on everyone else's too. :)

This morning I met a local reefer to rescue 6 Nudis. Hopefully they will knock back the Aip.

Lineatus has been doing good after the injury and slowly using his tail more. The good from the injury is he know longer is bullying the pintail and has been patient with the new radiant in his area. Its been a week and fish seem happy and more peaceful.
Radiant won’t hold still and is still camera shy

@RichtheReefer21 look at your zoa. We got three newcomers and might be a 4th.

Really happy the Lineatus is bouncing bacK! Not sure which I like more in those shots but happy things seem to be turning a corner for them/you! The Nudi’s will take a while before you notice much happening. The moment you write them off as a waste of money you’ll come home from work and notice 50% less Aips, then a week later they’ll be all but gone.

I dropped the Nudis in a crack between 5 sips so they don’t have to go looking for food and nobody can eat the nudis

After finding the zoa under a rock it took a couple months before it even showed life. If it keeps growing like this I will be happy.
Still haven’t decided on a spot for them.

That's always the biggest pain.. location location location. Amazing how some just melt, and other recover from what was thought to be too late. Sweet and sour. :)

That’s the truth. I was getting close to write it off then I saw a speck of color coming from a small blob of gray. Glad I could save them gems. Need to get a pic of the dendros. They are slowly growing in size but don’t see any more babies yet
