Interesting, should have probably tried to source it locally first before defaulting to Amazon.
Not even sure if that type of layering is going to work (mud at bottom, live sand in middle and aragonite at top), can't seem to find info of people doing it, but that is way we used to run planted tanks before all these fancy planted tanks substrates were available. Compost at bottom with a thick layer of gravel on top to stop it from floating around and dirtying water grew plants quite well, so hopefully the marine equivalent grows sea grasses well.
How about having some mangroves?
That could also work, need to plan what to do, quite excited to set it up, but will need to be patient, will probably only run by beginning December.
So, the bigger hogfish had to come out as it was bullying the smaller hogfish, causing it to hide constantly. Never a dull moment. If anyone wants to buy a hogfish, let me know (they are not too cheap though, quite a rare fish). It is going into my brother's 60cm cube for safe keeping for the time being.
A cool pic of the bigger hogfish last night just as it settled down to sleep:
I really like this marginatus wrasse:
Hogfish made it safely into my brother's cube:
Also had to take out 5 nigripes/maldives clowns as 2 paired up in the nenny. If anyone wants some, let me know ASAP, as I'm taking them to the lfs that just started marines around the corner (Paws and Whiskers by Impala) this afternoon.
Got a tiny pincushion frag on the left yesterday (thanks again @mariusmeyer ), so tiny it physically didn’t fit into my coral qt, so did reef dip and into display, hope I don’t come to regret this decision:
Lol tiny...takes up a quarter of the tank!
Also this girl in qt from @mariusmeyer , it was originally mine that I got on 4 March 2015, then sold it to Marius around September 2016 before I set up big tank to reduce bioload, and now bought it back, so she has come full circle in the last 3.5 years:
remember seeing that Bellus in your tank when you first had it....absolutely lovely fish.....looks even better now with the streamers.
Yes, they are amazing, I missed it, not sure what I was thinking selling it in the first place.
A quick video of the fish just before feeding time:
Blue and yellow blue and yellow!I love this tank. It is a style I could never pull off so it is great watching someone else rock it.
Did you have to adjust rock work and lights to put your tiny coral in the tank?
Love that bellus, so tempted to get one for my tank!
Haha, yip, moved half the rock in the tank around, and had to move lights out the way to get it in.
Some new fish in qt (thanks again @ScubaLover22 for sourcing them!):
And a quick video of tank last night:
New fish into display:
