Looks good! How are you going to deal with the aiptasia?
Thanks bud :thumbup1:

The aiptaisia removal is a two part project. The first part is nightly inspection and to shove pratelys putty in their faces and laugh. The second part is to just leave them for 36 days while I am in Namibia, when I return I should be able to see if they have been dealt with or not. I do not want to leave them for 3 months and zap them with lemon juice when they are large, I want them gone before they spread.

Well I can offer this photo while my wife was doing the social acclimation of the maculiceps tang.

Sometimes the planets align and a positive update is possible. I would like to show you my little Maculiceps tang, I have been hunting one of these guys for literally years, never seeing them in pet shops, in fact I have only ever seen one of these fish in person. My slight obsession was worth it in the end.

It happened the day after I leave my wife and home for an 8 week offshore trip, I arrive in Cameroon and boom, the LFS tells me he has in stock...

Risked it and my wife was amazing, nursed it through whitespot and here is the little rascal, he is one tiny tang!

Other tank news is all good, corals have been growing, as has left over aiptaisia...but thats not the end of the world.

@Keshen - Thanks for the compliment. I caught all of the fish in the Tidal pools at park Rhynie. The only exception is the scorpion fish, that was caught outside of the pool.

Good evening/morning fellow reefers.

So I removed a large piece of structural rock from my left scape, it had the majority of the remaining aptaisia along with the clam. They have been placed in my qt setup and I will be buying a copperband. Its my turn to join the copperband-wagon...

So I had to shuffle the scape as the rock I pulled out was the main rock.

Found my missing ricordea, its time to get it to stick to a rock and I unfortunately fragged my secale during the move, It still looks damn good at least.:m41:

I had a bit of a coral shopping spree, panic reaction to imminent out of the country work.

I bought 2 trachyphilia, 1 hammer euphilia, 5 zoa frags and a lobo frag.

Then the copperband is in the qt tank with aiptasia, its looking gooood. Its eating cyclops and soon aiptaisia.

Pics will happen when the corals are looking good and the cbb is a bit less stressed.
