Thanks for all the care I appreciate it :). He's gonna get buried today :(
We often bury pets too. Even fish. I actually prematurely dug a hole for our four year old Betta fish that is in serious decline, but he is holding on and manages eating. It is a nice way to give respect and closure to long time friends. Actually, more like family members.

Thinking of Harry.

Last Thursday I got a couple of new frags and a Starcki damselfish, I was hoping the new fish might help the Angelfish start eating again by creating competition but it didn't create any feeding response unfortunately. So here's a few pictures of the new additions

The starcki damselfish has built lots of caves in the sand, and Is a little more aggressive than I was expecting, also his yellow colouration has started to turn a little grey around his head.

Sorry never saw your message, any of those will do good in that size of a tank, maybe more than a trio if you are doing lyretails as they are supposed to do better in larger groups as agression is more spread out, if you want to.mix anthias species it is generally best to avoid lyretails or to add them last to the shoal. 3 times a day is best with them until they are filled out and recovered from acclamation and shipping stress etc and once they have put on enough weight you could probably get away with 2 feedings a day but 3 is better. Hope this helps and good luck, another species i love is the sunset anthias, never kept it but they look lovely
