    The tank is coming along ok, but saw today the yellow tang has developed some red on its fins and body, suspect it has something to do with the biopellets, so need to switch to a big algae scrubber soon as main source of nutrient export.

    You can see the red marks on the YT here (the HLLE has been there a while, not sure what caused it, but not getting worse at least):

    Then I also had my kamohara blenny disappear without a trace, really not sure what happened to it, quite sad, was such a great fish. Suspect maybe one of these had something to do with its disappearance (nenny or snake eel):
