    I think because I only have 4 fish he tends to chase my pajama cardinals. When I had my other fish he didnt bother anyone.

    Quick update.

    New additions. Climatized and added. (I know quarentine but my system is any way mostly empty).

    1 Dorry tang. 1 Sand sifting gobie. 1 Blenny (not sure which species). 1 Rock blenny. 1 Sand sifting star fish (Love these guys). 2 sets of mixed zoa frags.

    We wait and see what happens tomorrow. Also wanted a Magnificent Fox Face but at 2k I decided to let it go.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hahahaha yeah he is. He is about 120mm long but thats over a 3-4year period. Plus I am aiptasia free. He also eats algea, bubble algae and anything else that floats around the tank. Only thing is he doesnt like my Pajama Cardinals.

    I know the feeling. worked 5 weekends in a row 8 till 6 sat and sunday. home expo, shop renovations it's been exhausting. finally got a gap to go pump water for a waterchange send the pump sized..

    on the flip side it's best to leave it settle sometimes.

    Sorry to hear about the pump. Always a let down when you want to do something and something breaks.

    True about leaving the tank. I remember with my first tank I let it go for a while. The glass looked bad but the corals and fish never looked better.
