Mine actually were always out in the 75. Now, in the 125 I have 4 PJ and 2 Bangaii. One Bangaii and two PJs hide all day, the other 3 just kind of be still and look pretty but out in the tank. Not super active fish but still pretty!

No box prob should invest in one. Thought at night it would be OK. Guess feeding them the overstocked guppies was a bad idea. Going to invest in acclimation box. For now they are chilling in the office 10g with the sw guppies.
Stupid is what stupid does.

Don't bum yourself out too much. I dropped my pair of divided leopards and moyari in the 120 with the gang and the pink tail trigger ate one, maimed one, and the third hid for ten days in the sand.

I've got 3 acclimation boxes

Well shoot. Anyone familiar with Seagrest Farms out of Gibsonton Florida? Mama has been very good this year. Turns out I can order saltwater fish, critters and coral at the part time place. If they have them they will ship straight to the store and I would jut hop over to pick them up.

I have to go back and check my list I know I had some wrasses on it too. I'm just gonna say the markups on these have got to be huge. Should have a better idea tomorrow when I start putting the codes in.

Anyone have a source for the plastic used for the hinges on glass lids? Found plasticraft and us plastic Corp. Don't think local box stores carry it.
Edit : plasticraft is "local" so making a trip out to them in the spring.

Tank test Tues results:
Ph 8.15
No : 10
Po : 16 / .049
Alk : .44 / 8.6 salifert .160/8.96 hanna
Ca: .11 / 445
Mg: 1500 +3 drops

Ordered dual media reactor from BRS for Carbon and GFO. Also got a Kamoer auto water change off marketplace here. Happy holidays to me.
Still have what appears to be cyano tho. Mixed up sand bed yesterday and blew off the rocks so that seemed to help. Had skimmer offline for a couple days to add the goodies from IPSF and Poseidons. Hoping the pods and added critters/mud/sand will help. Skimmer is back online as well. Thursday is tank day so the final tweaks will be made then.

Sending out the Banana signal. #Cronies
Help is needed.
I posted my parameters from 6am this morning earlier. Yesterday I mixed up the sand bed to "help" with the cyano. I did a largish water change at about 11 1130 today of roughly 25g. The skimmer has been back online for over 24 hours and it pulling wet. I walk downstairs after work was over and it is absolutely terrible.
These are under whites.

I still don't think it's dino's but I am getting pretty worried at this point.
I have a scope so I will see what that shows tomorrow am. Have to go to job #2 in and cand do now. Turning off lights and hoping to figure this out.
Any help would be great guys and gals.
