Tried to capture all 4 fish in the same shot. Just saying, It ain't easy.

Was gonna say I only count three blurs, til I watched your video, then suddenly I saw the blenny on the monti I hadn't. :p

Best chance to get multiple fish is drop in a tiny bit of food and they'll all come to one area for a second.

Thanks, that was actually them getting ready for me to feed, maybe next time I will try to shoot after I start feeding. They become kinda frenzied when they see me walk from the freezer to the tank.

I get chills when seeing all those bristle worms lol. Not worried about them? They multiple quickly. I just got my 200XL setup. Nonetheless beautiful tank!
I have not seen anything bad resulting from them yet. I created a thread in Nuisance Algae section and the bristle worm population became a side topic very fast. I am already looking for my supplies to build a trap. Going to use a soda bottle with the top inverted.

Poor guy! Must be stressed out from being trapped. At least you caught... something.
ooohhh!!!! my heart hurt when I watched back through the firs time. He hit it so hard that he jammed it, and that is why it was hard for me to just pop out. Thinking of trying a smaller bottle and jam it up against the rockwork.

I’m learning so much from following this thread. I’ve decided the 200xl is the right starting point for me too! Thanks so much!


So glad to hear that. If you have any questions that haven't been covered I'll gladly do my best to answer them.
