    Looking good dude. Has the Cespitularia started attaching properly? Take pictures of your scrubber build when you start, so that we can comment and advise.

    Thanks, yup just checked this morning after doing my water change, Cespitularia started to re-attach. Added a small DSB, level a bit low at only 8cm. Will add amother 2cm. Thanks for lighting info.

    Cheers

    Hey there Seabass - sorry to hear about hawkfish! Nice additions though but a word of warning - you sea in the last photo how this hawkfish is looking at the shrimp - I know whats going through his mind - dinner! Check out my thread somewhere in March bought dancing shrimp and cleaner shrimp - my cleaner didnt even reach the floor when i put him the tank - he was slurped up by the hawkfish - couldn't even fit properly in his mouth - took like 10 minutes but managed to get all of him inside - that was the end of my cleaner - keep him well fed and should be ok but he does have predatory nature so be carefull!

    Agreed, am concerned about this, my LFS assured me that as long as the shrimp is added first it would not be a problem, I am not so sure about that. Had the shrimp in for about a month before adding the hawk fish. Only time will tell.:(

    Hey Pierre, don't worry, the hawkfish is looking at the coral banded shrimp in fear and respect. I saw a video of a mantis having it out with one of those puppies. Believe me when I tell you, he can hold his own.

    Hi Afsal

    No picked up the hawk fish first, about 3 months ago, the LONGNOSE was about two months later, only been in the tank for about a month. But the fact of the matter is that the LONGNOSE is such a beaut of a fish.

    Cheers Afsal

    PS. nice tank, think mine would fit into it about 10x.
