Nice longnose, hawkfishes are very underrated.

Sucks to hear that the clowns don't get hosted, but you never know. Maybe one day they will start to notice and then they'll never leave it!

I think you made a smart decision not to acquire a copperband for the tank, mine roams around tons to hunt. A beautiful and personable fish; it used to hide all the time but now it follows me everywhere to beg for food! My secret: live blackworms. No fish has resisted it since I got them a few weeks ago, and they all seem more lively and less shy now. If you want to try, I can give you a spoonful and see if your fish likes it.

Oh boy, not the bubble algae... hate that stuff and tore my last tank up due to bubble algae just to get it in the new one as well...

Heard foxfaces are good at removing that stuff...

Thanks Brian, I've been meaning to visit for weeks now. Still want one of your mutant hammers. Let me see what the wife has for plans tonight, I may just text you later.

I heard that too, unfortunately they are too large for my tank. I've also heard Electric Blue Hermits can help, waiting for J&L to get some in. I'll probably get a couple dozen, or several more Emeralds.

I've never had anything that gets rid of bubble algae other than my hand with a pair of tweezers. The fox face used to eat it if I lost grip and it went into the water column, otherwise it would swim right past it.

Bubble algae is the reason I acid bathed my rock.

I've been just scraping it off the rock and letting it go into the filter sock. The MI will eat it if it's floating, but nothing eats it attached. Even emeralds. So far I'm making good headway like this, as long as you keep nutrients down, it slows and eventually stops growing.

So I got in a group buy from Fragbox with a few buddies. Figured I'd post a couple pics.

West Coast Coral Illuminati patiently waiting for delivery last night.



Pretty sure we broke some pieces during unbagging.



Quick dip, can't go wrong. Everything nice and clean, typical with FragBox!



Lots of tank talk going on. Secret society stuff.



Illuminati member 1 fixing his bandsaw. Coral Illuminati plotting world domination.



Mad cutting skills. Illuminati member 2 had to take over.



1/3rd of the way done. Thanks Illuminati member 1 for hosting, Illuminati member 2 for airport pick up, and March from Fragbox for some amazing tank candy.



This morning.
