    So, I have something going after my gorgonian and my chilli coral. I suspect a crab, as you will see on pictures I took, it cut the branches just like scissors would do. My chilli coral is almost completely eaten. So tall glass and piece of shrimp going in my tank tonight, and hopefully I can catch it.

    look at those 3 branches that are cut off

    Beautiful Fish and I hope you catch the culprit. I have a crab in my tank that's been evading my attempts to nab it for months and months. Yesterday I got very close and snuck up from behind with long tweezers, but all I got was it's arm :eek: Well at least it won't have that for a while (do they grow back?).

    Quick update on my qt. Tinkeri butterfly is doing great now. Couple of days after I got her from LFS it was covered in ich everywhere , also I saw signs of flukes. That's so important to have qt ready, as even best LFS can't prevent all disease. She is in 60 mg/gal CP and after 2 treatment with General Cure which is Prazipro and Metro mixed together. I was scared for couple of days as she stopped eating and only was breathing with one gill, the other was shut. But few days later she looks clean and eating like pig, also is breathing normal with both gills. She will stay in CP for full 30 days, after that I will observe her for another week or so, and if all good will go in DT before holidays.
