Mine is 4 months old and it's mostly purple now. Only a few spots here and there that's not purple yet.

That will be nice.

I am wanting to add some more snails to eat some of the algae I have a single turbo snail that is doing good. I feel if I add more they will starve since I don't have a lot of algae.

My question is what kind of snail should I get to take care of what the turbo doesn't get to.

In my 65g I put like about 9 turbos, a few hermits and a few other types of snails. The turbos get to places just fine. Whatever they don't get the tang and the angel takes care of. If your afraid of them starving, some algae sheets would do the trick.

I only have like a couple of astrea snails. About 6 or so nassarius snails plus a tiger conch. Also a sally lightfoot and a coral banded shrimp.

Be careful what you put with those hawk fish. They're predatory fish. I have two of them and my green chromis and orchid dottyback hides from them.

They started wondering about on the second day we got them. Then they started eyeing at the chromises on the 3rd day. They were waiting for them to get closer as they started sneaking towards them. The chromises started grouping together tightly and started going up higher away from them. Then they lost interest and swim away.

Picked up a one spot foxface at this past meeting and he is awesome. Little shy still but looks great in the tank.

Here is a short video of the tank as it is right now. Need to get more corals :)
