I wish I knew where to place the pink nepthea, each time it collapses it does so under the rocks so when it tries to stand up it can't, I have rotated it a few times now.
It seems fine, I need better pics to get an ID.

Oh yeh, forgot, all three mimics are doing well, the smaller two still glass surf some, they do check everything out!
The gcg lives in the cabbage coral, it is the only fish in the tank that has even looked at them! ... It does the same to the flame angel if she gets too close, dart out, look threatening, show teeth and dart back in, all in about a second! ;)

I love your GCG!!! One of my favorite fish...although mine has jumped the overflow twice and ended up in the sump (one time for almost a month...I thought he was a goner). He has also recently been sucked up in a water change (to my horror) and ended up in the water change bucket. The overflow has some nice zip-tied mesh around it now, and I get a visual on that silly fish before I do a water change. ;Joyful

"So how has your day been Simon?"
... we all know how this usually goes right?

I removed the trap at the start of the week because the Timor vanished.
When I did it I knew it was a semi calculated risk!
At about 13-30 hrs today the Timor appeared and went straight for the mimics.
They were terrified and it took me about 20 minutes to catch them and put them in the cube safe, fish trap in facing the display, I hate this fish!

Ok the mimic fie fish'.
I know them as m1 m2 and m3 now, m1 is the biggest.
Current situation appears to be that m1 and m3 are buddies and m2 is the loner, m2 spends a lot of time with the cbb in the cube.
This was lucky! :)
It is like trying to herd cats! ;)

I moved one of the gold neptheas back into the display but out of the y scopas and fff comfort zone.

I took these with one pair of T5s still to come on as it shows the mauve better, I have to move it slightly in a bit as those tips are less than a cm from the surface! ;)
