    Here we go! Chuck's new build

    Had an extremely rough past month. I ALMOST made an unthinkable decision to tear down the tank and leave the hobby. After seeking help and took a 2 weeks vacation at home, I am feeling much better and continues to get back on track. So glad I didn't went through with it Purple tang has settling in very well Purple tang and anemones by t@#$%c, on Flickr Purple tang and anemones by t@#$%c, on Flickr My GSP polyps has been shorten for some reason and not fully extend like they used too. Maybe not enough nutrient? Purple tang and anemones by t@#$%c, on Flickr

    Day 4 of the new addition. All the tangs are almost in harmony and eating each other waste Once in a while the blue and yellow tangs would keep the new guy in check I suppose they are only trying to reassure that their pecking order.

    Six line wrasse and Mandarin

    from my experience, they will relentlessly go after new addition that are smaller and similar shape. Once its pass the aggression, usually a few days, it will mind its own business. They are hard to catch, try using the bottle trap.

    Got a new resident for the tank. I was very worry of the yellow tang when I introduced the new smaller purple tang last night. I know the yellow tang will be super aggressive toward the new tang. As suspected, it went nut but not attacking. I shut off all the lights to let the new fish adjust to its new home. Today, the tank is a bit calmer and the yellow tang also much less aggressive toward the new resident. Surprisingly, the one fish that I never thought would have any aggression is the hippo tang. It's has always been a good tank mate. Today, it's attacked the new fish during feeding and occasionally chase the new fish. The most noticeable fish is the yellow damsel. Constantly, harassing the new fish. Might have to sump it if it continue to harass the tang!

    Water filter

    If you are using a handheld TDS tester. Make sure you collect test rodi water directly from the rodi hose and use a brand new cup. Otherwise your reading will be higher than it should be. My reading directly from the ro reservoir always read 5-10ppm. But reading in a new cup that taking directly from the rodi reads 0.

    I am certain that I have seen these in the for sale section several months back.

    The one you see in the latest video in the center is a flame tip. The one you got from me is a rainbow, it's a clone of one of the other anemones in the back of the tank. Anemone will look different from tank to tank as well as different lighting. growing and healthy is a good sign. Hopefully it doesn't move. I loss a few to powerheads when they released from the rock trying to move.

    Glad you enjoy them. Thanks your tank is new. You'll eventually get there. There will be much more variety of algae than just brown algae LOL

    haha! "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" I wish I could get some of the coral to grow faster like yours. About 1/4 of mine coral in my tank grow very well, but the one that I like to grow a bit faster doesn't budge.
