    Using jumbo pukani from BRS, bleached the rock for a week added bio spira. ammonia settled down in a matter of days. I used my blood orange clown from my bio cube. He's been my first fish for 2 years since I got back into the hobby and he handled the change very well after one day. I currently don't have a skimmer never used one in my bio cube 29 but I was thinking about getting a skimz on Black Friday

    Official one month update
    Second wave of diatoms in full effect this time
    All the fish are happy and are refining all they’re newly established relations. EXCEPT ONE!

    I did however have a blue fin wrasse from live aquaria that had some bacteria or fungi eating at the flesh and scales of the back half of the fish. this really sucked guys, I’ve never seen anything like it and it was painful to watch. I haven’t seen a dead or sick fish in years but live aquaria did make it right and I did my best to medicate the poor soul. ultimately I was to late with noticing the severity of the illness. Signs of infection came and left in a mater of 36-48 hours. Up until the last 12 hours the fish was still eating normally. Swimming behavior was a bit skittish for the time I had him I though it was stress from traveling now I don’t know. He survived with me 5 days and was a very beautiful fish.
    Since then a week has passed and I have preventativly medicated my display tank and I’m looking to finish stocking this 60g cube I’m looking to add some character to the tank maybe some sand sitters or something that will perch on the rock all day. Can anyone recommend some fun to watch critters for my DT

    Skimz sn143 has slowed down a lot in making micro bubbles but there are still a few getting out threw the gate valve and back into my DT
