Did the damsel make it?

Three stripe and domino damsels become monsters when they get bigger. They are monsters when small

Anyway, 125 for a tank and steel stand is a great deal. Usually the stand alone is that much on sale

Cloudy water for 24 hours says your filtration is not enough

If you got the Noopsyche, that implies you're getting corals later. If so, I would get some real live rock and pull that decoration rock out

Something is wrong with your electrical If it's popping on an amp of power. Get that fixed before buying coral

Jebao gyres or Maxspect Jump gyres are the best deal for flow right now. You will need waterfowl for corals
Yea one of my damsels made it and is doing amazing lol. I didn’t realize how aggressive they were. But hopefully he calms down a bit. Thanks for the reply! The cloudy ness came down and is crystal clear now! I still have yet to find what the power issue is but has not cut off in a bit. Thanks again for the input! Will definitely look into more flow!

UPDATE:

Yesterday one of my hermit crabs molted! I got scared because I thought it was dead! I have a few extra shells in the tank but thinking I might need more. I’m assuming he went into his old shell. Not sure how all of that works out. Here is a picture

Update:

Everything is going well just still waiting for my packages to do a little upgrade of the light situation and rock Situation. I am really thinking about getting a new stand for my aquarium to give me the opportunity for a sump and more space.

I’m going to have to drain most of it to re create my aqua escape anyway so I think this would be the best time to end up doing this. What do you think about this stand? I could end up having a 20 gallon sump underneath.

Also I’ll take any suggestions and advice regarding this! IMG_0731.png

UPDATE: My packages are here!!! I have received my BRS RO/DI. And it’s shocking how much you can notice how much less my RODI water nitrites are compared to my tap water!

I do have bad news tho my Goby passed away and not 100% sure why levels were great he started hiding from me and then one day wouldn’t see him at all. Everything else in the tank seems to be doing great!

I have also received my 22 pounds of more dry rock I intend to put together soon, I received my stand for my tank. My NooPsyche light has also arrived, I have placed that on the tank and will upload more pictures tomorrow! I plan on trying to set up my DIY lid tomorrow as well. Not looking forward to that because that will be a hassle! UPDATES TO COME!!

UPDATE:

since the stuff I ordered is going to take a bit I decided to do a little thing and got myself a Pink speckled Goby and a tiger pistol shrimp! These were not paired when I got them but they are best buds already! Definitely a cool little pair! They definitely love to disappear had me worried for a bit!
Cool, this is my next add is a goby/pistol to try and pair.

Update: Last weekend and This weekend was a big weekend for me! I decided to get some new friends. Last weekend I decided to go out and get a cleaner shrimp and some more CUC. This weekend I decided to go out and get a few fish! Because my last watchmen goby ended up not making it I decided to get a new Goby for my Pistol Shrimp. I was debating between getting 2 clown fish or 2 Bartlett Anthias to school in my water collum and give my shrimp something to clean! But before I asked my LFS to scoop it out them out for me I noticed they were 80$ each! My girlfriend on the other hand liked the Flame Angel and even after telling her it might peck at future corals, she was still in love. So now we have a Goby (Gibby) and a Flame Angel (Cheeto) in the tank!

Another update is that I tried to put together my Red Sea DIY Mesh Lid but I did not have enough corners so im waiting for more to come in.

I am also deciding on a Sump and I have made a post to get more info about it here SUMP help

Not sure what my next plans will be but I am also thinking about getting a Star Fish sometime soon just not sure which.
