    How's that Golden Dwarf Moray doing? I have the same tank and was concerned it would get lost in a tank this size.

    He is awesome! He goes from each of the 3 major rock formations, so each day I'll find him somewhere else. Every now and then I see him free swimming between locations which is cool. He eats well although he has expensive tastes. I feed him Mahi Mahi soaked in Selcon. I've tried some other foods, but so far that's his favorite. He does eat clams too but not as happily (read aggressively LOL ). He's a super cool addition, and I often have to point him out to guests because they see all the other fish swimming around and so colorful, but they don't look in the nooks and crannies where he lives, then he'll just pop his head out and surprise them once in a while. People really like him once they see him. I'm very happy with him so far.

    Both came in, although there was an address error on the package with the RRC Rainbow Splice so I had to get FEDEX to hold it at a location and go pick it up otherwise they would deliver the next day. Both the Tamarin Wrasse and the Rainbow Splice frag are doing awesome and I'll post pics of both in the near future...

    I did. It's tiny, so I'm waiting for it to grow a bit before I reveal it to the world :) it's doing well though!

    Tammy the Blue Striped Tamarin Wrasse is in her new home! I'll post better pictures when I can get them. She's fast and always on the move. Currently my favorite fish in the tank!

    Your Blue Striped Tamarin Wrasse (and tank in general!) are looking great!!! Does Tammy sleep under the sand like other wrasses?

    Thank you! Yes she does sleep in the sand. I currently have 8 wrasses in the tank, but she is my favorite right now!

    I've always been afraid that they'd find a way to jump. You must have a tight lid!

    Just went through the whole thread!
    Nice built and what a wonderful collection of coral and fish. Congratulations.

    I like to hear more about how you connected the Dastaco to the Alkatronic. I assume the Alkatronic is controlling the feed pump to the Dastaco reactors.
    But how did you connect this?

    Thank you very much! The Alkatronic comes with a controllable bluetooth outlet. I just plug the DaStaCo controller into the controllable outlet, then set the range for the outlet to be turned on and off, so it will turn off the CA reactor if my Alk goes above 8.5, then it turns it back on when it drops below 8.5 again. It works perfectly.

    Thanks for the info @SawCJack00
    I was not aware the Alkatronic comes with this outlet.
    Gotta look into this.

    I left my feeding door open on my top (4"x 8") accidentally, and went to another room to do something. i walked back in about 10 minutes later, and my Diamond Goby managed to jump out of it... I found him on the floor dead. He couldn't have been there long and I tried to revive him but no luck :( He was an awesome fish and really kept my sand bed clean. RIP buddy. I'm totally bummed, but I will definitely get another one soon.

    My diamond goby could've learned something form your diamond goby.
