Yeah sorry about the back door, but I had to sneak in last week to get measurements.

Got two extremely tiny mandarin fish today. They are so tiny.

Now just need my new corals to along with them.
That’ll probably be my last addition as I want an overload on my pod population first. They are my absolute favorite though. Plus, I just added like 15 fish in the last month. Eek!

Probably never happen in my tank... 3 Halichoeres wrasses and 2 Springeri Damsels.

My newest additions are 2 watanabe angels. They are very small too. I can’t wait for one to become a male!!
I need an Angel to help control sponges. I was hoping to go Swallowtail or something but the Genicanthus don't eat sponges so... Still watching for a Lamarck's eventually anyway.

I want a melanurus but afraid my timor wrasse may get abusive when it finally transitions. Right now it's one of the most friendly fish I have.
Never know. Always have to have a backup plan. I have a Mel, he's transitioning and the largest of the 3. I have a Leucoxanthus female (she may be getting some green in the face so may be transitioning soon) and a pure juvenile Garnoti. She's like 2 inches if that. Mel and Leuco are in the 5"+ range. Leuco is still torpedo shaped And mostly yellow with the white belly starting to turn pink.

I thought about a leucox, colors are different enough from the Timor. Or a chrysus.

I just gave my friend a huge, beautiful, fat melanurus. I like a CUC and it devoured every snail and would rip hermits from their shells throwing the shell across the tank. He is happy in his new 450 gallon tank at least.

Mine leaves most of my CUC alone which is odd since it's mainly Stomatellas...

Good for you! I was a little sad because it truly was a happy, healthy beauty. It was like that with my CUC from Day 1. We had him well over a year with no improvement. We’ve been using The Plank auto feeder which feeds the fish 8 times a day (plus we do Nori and mysis a few times a week) to help the others be respectful citizens! Lol.
