First quarantined fish. His name is Slim. Found out he was an ******* after I started adding in other fish.

And my first shipment from TSM aquatics. Matt and his team has been great. If you need healthy quaratined fish, give the a try. Everything I have gotten has arrived on time, healthy, and eating within 1 to 2 hours of acclimation to the tank. Cant say enough good things. Fish are purple tang, desarjini sailfin tang, tomini tang, longfin fairy wrasse, bluethroat fairy wrasse, naoko wrasse, mccoscars wrasse, and solar wrasse.

So this happened with little notice. Bump on left lower jaw. Blue throat wrasse stopped eating and died within 24 hours. Did a microscopic swab of the wound. Large amount of rod bacteria. So assume died from sepsis due to infected wound. TSM was awesome and sent a replacement as I only had him 4 days and the other fish were doing well. Can't say enough good things about them so far!.

Probably my favorite wrasse in the tank. But the midas blenny took a huge chunk out of his tail, and looks like it died back to the tail muscles. Pic was taken 2 to 3 weeks ago, and he's still swimming, eating like a pig, and getting fatter.

Thanks! Me too on the overflow. So far so good, there are fish in the tank. Just not trying to give it all away at once. Veterinary clinic.
Keep the bangle cats away from the water!
Midas blenny could be a male and protecting his den. I don't know to be honest. People say they are a hit or miss. I can only assume the females are more behaved.

I've seen on here they seem to like to use tanks as their personal litterboxes! The midas schools with the anthias, and honestly I believe he thinks the entire tank is his. I've had three of them in the past 20 years, and by far is the biggest ******. He's actually been one of the most aggressive fish I've had. Luckily he's calmed down in the last week or so.

I had a monster midas. He had a cubby he guarded and my wrasse would pick on him. But I watched a documentary on the midas, the lure the female into their den. So, only reason I think the mean ones are male.
Beautiful setup, very well thought out, good job!

That top tho! Beautiful.
Thanks! They did good work. Did take awhile, month and a half, but good quality and looks good. The center is miscut (my fault), but we are getting it worked out. I do recommend them. Was a little pricey, but had to complement the amazing work Envision acrylic did on the tank.
