    I decided to create a new thread for my tank since the images I uploaded on the other one was too big.

    The tank has been running for 5-6 months and going well.

    Still fighting some GHA as you can see, but at least I got rid of cyano and white spot already so I'm taking it one issue at a time :)

    NH4 - 0
    NO2 - 0
    NO3 - 10
    PO4 - 0.2
    Ca - 420
    Mg - 1260
    Alk - 6.1
    Salinity - 1.026 (or specific gravity or whatever)
    Temp - 24.5

    A Xenia of mine died after starting on Redsea NoPox (either that or my nennie walking over it) and a new goldie I added had gone missing. So that most likely caused the PO4 spike and I'm slowly bringing that down.

    Anyways here's the pics

    I'm no expert and I have only had him for a short time (last fish I added), but I've heard it depends on the specific fish and mine's previous owner did not have problems with him nipping corals.

    At this time I'm more concerned about him not becoming a victim of my yellow tang (the YT has been chasing him around). I've put up a mirror on the side which seems to distract the both of them so let's hope.
