Was a beautiful fish. Sorry for the loss.
Thanks. I had some aggression the tang would harasse it from time to time nothing serious. I imagine it played a part

Update digi
Else has left some alone and others not so much.
The big break shifted and touched a yumma. A few white spots where it touched the rest looks good. My bet it will heal. It survived the last beating from a hydnopora

Moved the purple digi to more of the middle of the tank with more flow. Added a small jeabo to add movement to the green and forest fire digi. Purple pocillopora has also benefited.

I'm beyond upset. Usa eflux wave pumps are a crappy pumps. I've had 6 and 4 out of the 5 have failed. 3 with in the first year and this one was a replacement and it just failed outside of the year.
Garbage I don't care how great customer service is if they can't make a quality product.

Redid rock scape why because of the pistol shrimp of corse. Broke some more digis. How do they ever survive on the reef? I guess thats one way of propagation. Ugh a run of bad luck of as late.

I do like the snew scape. Its just about the way it was but slightly different not all that bad.

I have no pump suggestions. I used the eflux wave pumps with the current lights. I absolutely hated them. They would work one hour, the next they stopped. I would have to mess around with the settings to get them to kick on again.
I am keeping away from current usa. They seem to fail right out of warranty.
Hopefully someone will be able to chime in with some solid ideas.

Suggestions on new pump open to ideas. Preferably doesn't break the bank
I'm looking as well.. I need less movement than a jaebo CP 90 wave maker, still with a pulsing feature, that doesn't cost arm + leg.

I'm looking at a cross pump but haven't ruled out a smaller one. It looks like some of these pumps can really move some water

Yeah that's the problem I'm running into. I got the CP90 mounted to the back wall for my digis/acro. It's set for the lowest setting possible but is still hitting the front of the tank too hard. I'm thinking I may just throttle the intake with PVC expanded mesh.

I think most of these pumps are designed to run the length not the width of the tank.

@Lost in the Sauce i look for the lowest flow setting. 30% is usually the lowest setting. At 2100gph that becomes a problem.
