Couple shots of the new guy. We let him out yesterday afternoon. He got a little grief initially but things have settled down quite a bit since then. He’s still keeping his distance from the pack outside of feeding time but I only see one missing scale after 24 hours.

Check out that pointed tail. Its the most defined point Ive seen on any of my wrasse with pin tails.

Nice isosceles. Mine ran into something shortly after getting him and ended up passing from a spinal injury.

That blows...Sorry. I actually thought this guy was gonna kill himself in a similar way when I had him in the acclimation box. Thats part of the reason he got out as quickly as he did. He went bananas a couple of times in there. I’ve lucked out With him so far.

Beautiful set-up. Lots of potential there. Wrasses and "bare bottom" in the same sentence seems very strange to me.
Yeah, Im sorta missing having a Leopard or Halichoeres species but otherwise Im very happy with the direction of the tank. Still have the option of some sand in a container for sand sleepers if I decided to go that route.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look!

Very Happy with the R2R swag @revhtree ! Needed a new shell to abuse in the mountains and me thinks this will work :)

Quick snack time video. Didnt mess with lighting so not sure how it’ll look.

Stop smashing your keyboard. I'm trying to hear the water trickle.

I have some pictures of how I do it, but I am not sure... oh wait, never mind.
It was extremely difficult for me to not comment. I'm glad you stepped up Brian! ;Hilarious
