Yes Steve does.

By the way for both of you. Raised mag a little over 1500 and rhomboids eye looks good. Seems he can’t see or has bad vision in it but pop eye is gone. He misses food on the bad side and also hit things. He tries to always favor the good eye
That is good the popeye went away. Vision may come back after whatever injury heals. If not, the fish will adapt and do it quickly. I have seen numerous one eye fish recover and adjust just fine.

Not to worried. He is in a bare bottom 20 gallon so it’s tight. This weekend I may throw him in the 220. Bare bottom seem to make wrasse little uncomfortable on top of a small tank

I agree. He deserves to be the first one in the new tank!

Beat me to it. Agree, give it some time to learn the new tank by itself.

First fish was flame and a little flasher. But I do want rhomboid in early as for over a year he been alone in a 20 with a visitor every now and then. He was to small for general population

I just noticed I've never responded on your build thread yet, @SaltyT !
Your tank is beautiful and the live rock is just wonderful! Though I'm sure they are never as good as seeing in person, your photos are excellent and show some beautiful wrasses!

Welcome!

Thank you for the kind words. My photo skills aren't to Najer's level, but I try my best!
