Except what if they were asking what fish you WANT?
I knew I didn't overthink that enough!

Wait. Was it? Now I gotta go back and re-read that ....

i really need to get rid of that Domino damsel and get a puffer in the office tank.
Such a curious lil dude. Love watching him explore. Hopefully he stays nice and reef safe. I do have some cool inverts but compared to his size I think they should be ok.

Well, 2 of the 6 beauties I just got are peeling. Quickly too. From looking suspicious this morning to most of the flesh just gone. Others look from fine to fantastic. Bummer. Should I dip them in anything? It's neighbor frag is furry with all it's polyps out, so it's not affecting all the same.

All other established corals look happy with polyps out. Thinking it's just from either liking my water or not?

I'm starting tests now.

Likely won't be able to save them when they get to that point.

Testing will still be good to see what may have caused the issue. Maybe ph or alk? What's the flow like?
Just did tests, and I guess flow might be medium? Not in direct flow but certainly getting polyps moving. It's slightly too strong for a goni in this same spot, for reference.

Maybe alk a little low?
