So cool! Are you worried about any of them munching on each other?
The size comparisons between them makes me confident that they will coexist. The only real worry i have is with the frogfish and reef lobster. The frog is slow moving and lobsters are opportunistic...but so far they seem to be avoiding one another.

The concern would be the lobster injuring the frog, and they would likely not survive a bacterial infection. My ribbon eel was never happy in my 90g, how long is your tank.

Its 4' . Ursula isnt a wanderer and as long as she has enough pipe space, historically, to hide her body she is content. She has already started eating again so she seems happy.

And yeah, the lobster is the worry for sure. Atm he is staying way low in the tank and leaving everything alone. Will definitely keep an eye on him. When we picked up the Lobster it was in a reef tank with all sorts of tiny morsels so, he may be a good Tempered villain lol
 

Have you ever used a spoon, hose and rubber band together to remove algae?
