There we go, Luis. Nice Pic. Lol, mine is a peacekeeper. When the yellow damsel starts being a jerk, the blenny will swim around him in small circles. It just makes the yellow jerk retreat and behave.

I have never had that light but I have only heard good things about it

That's a good cuc
You can also think of a sanbed starfish, nassarius snail and tiger conch for they take care of the sand

Great options! The stars are really cool. And thank you for recommending a snail, as I'm less familiar with them.

love that shot Kevin.
Thank you, that was the day I got it. Like you it has become my favorite fish. So much personality in such a small package!

I agree with @luis angel , a tiger conch and nassarius snails are a must to keep your sandbed clean. I have both plus a diamond watchman goby and never have to touch my sandbed.

Great, thank you guys. I'm going to my lfs in a couple days and I really wanted to have an idea before I went in to buy. I've definitely seen a tiger conch and several types of snails hopefully nassarius. Ill let you know what i end up with. @luis angel @kevgib67

You both are to kind! An authentic Cuban sandwich is still on my bucket list Luis!
I feel like I owe you one, somehow I have to send you one, even if it's through Uber Eats.

I wish everyone lived closer, my birdsnest is breaking the surface, my monti cap is out of control and I need to frag my Raga Rampage chalice. I would love to give them away. I haven’t done it before but I don’t want my animals in the trash and I think I don’t have anybody to give them to.

Can you imagine everything we would do if we lived nearby, between fishing and the tanks, my wife kicks me out of the house lol, try to sell it Kev, so you get something back so you can continue investing in the tank or in something else

Hi,

Sorry I haven't been active in this thread! Life has gotten incredibly busy, and I also stopped receiving notifications. Your updates are awesome! The tank is really coming together. Love the new candy cane coral! It's stunning! And welcome to the tailspot lover group! I have a tailspot too, and mine has the funniest little personality.

We'd all be in trouble, I guess. If I'm not chasing fish around my tank, I'm chasing them in the Gulf! Lol

Thanks so much for following along with my build, Walker. I really appreciate the compliments. I've had my eye on a candy cane since I started making my coral wish list! I didn't realize all three of you had tailspots. I'm honored to be part of the crew . I don't blame you. What a personality.
