    hopefully, not too soon. as of now, I'm just letting the tank recover from the moves. probably not much happening for the next 2-3 mos at least. so happy that golf season is around the corner as my patience is gonna get tested in the next couple of weeks. I'll just keep the routine maintenance and try to keep busy with other things. this hobby really test yah as when you can't add anything in your tank is when some things you've been looking for a while becomes available.


    man.. so sorry to hear about your troubles, esp losing your clowns. I know you've had them for a while. :(

    my clowns are doing well but I'm sure they are still recovering from the move and getting used to their new environment. they're also reworking things with the hierarchy as I let go of some of the oldest and more dominant ones. I'm down to 8 Picasso's, 1 Platinum, and 1 Phantom in the main tank. 3 WW and 2 Phantoms are currently in my son's tank. they will go in the main tank probably next month. so 15 clowns total compared to over 20 I had before. I also had to let go of a few other fishes to lessen the bioload.

    overall, I'm pretty happy with how the tank is coming along though. the waiting game is the hardest part but I just have to be patient. keeping up with the water change once/week and getting to know the tank more and develop a routine based on the schedule. thanks for checking in. :)

    :) Me too, Marvin! Well, it's golf season almost all year long down here, but you know that our tanks do best when we just sit back, do routine maintenance on the tanks and let them do their own thing!

    LoL. Not that good either. Bogey golf and I'm fine with it. Occassional dip into 80's if I play more than 2-3x/week. Did shoot high 70's last season. I don't think I play enough to shoot consistent 80's so I'm not too hard on myself. Just having fun on the course. Sorry, but I don't drink beer. I'll take you up on some Coke&Pepsi though. :)

    haven't posted pics in a while.. wanted to share these pics of the Sunburst BTA as this morph is definitely my favorite morph of the bunch. I do however have some other morphs that I hope to add in the near future, when the tank recovers from all the mishaps the past few weeks. I'll probably wait til next month to see if I can try adding another nice BTA morph. also, a few pics of the tank since i changed the scape from 3 islands to just 2. the huge rock that used to house the Sunburst lost its purpose as the Sunburst decided to move to the ceramic rock next door. haha.. I really like how the two island looked turned out. a bunch of caves for the fishes to swim in and out (even the Yellow Tang and Majestic can fit on some of the caves). ofcourse, a short FTS vid is added just to complete the update. any input is appreciated. :)

    The scape looks great Marvin, I'm liking the two islands. That flasher is gorgeous darting across.

    Hahah... That flasher caught my eye too, LOL.

    Marvin, your Sunburst BTA is gorgeous and I love the minimalist scape. Thanks for sharing your awesome pics and video!

    Great detail in those BTA pics. Like they scape -- leaves lots of room for the fish to swim and creates a nice visual.

    Thanks guys and gals. the Linespot flasher does his thing all day long. kinda cool to see a lone wrasse doing his thing. he's gotten big. I think it's because he's the only wrasse in the tank and he can pretty much do whatever he wants. he does keep the Azure's in check in case the males decide to have a disagreement. one pair of Azure's hangs out on the left and the other pair on the right. I haven't seen any eggs since the last few egg batches a while back. the caves and crevices are really cool to see in person as they provide many hiding places for the fishes. I'm sure everyone is still trying to find their own hiding places. hopefully things will settle down nicely. the caves and crevices will be good for the future BTA's too. in a way, I'm glad that the Sunburst decided to move as the 2 islands scape is really cool, probably one of the best scapes I've ever had. it's very functional and it looks nice. what else can yah ask for? ;)

    I need all the practice I can get. LoL. Hope to get passed bogey golf this year. High 80's is my goal this year. I wish I can play more than once/wk.
