My Bonsai Reef

She lives another day! Was able to temporarily move to an area with power. 🙂 I did have ro use the smaller tank again because it's lighter and easier to transport and set up. Here she is in her original tank again barebottom.

The power came back earlier than expected, so now she's back home. Behind this peaceful and easy looking tank are many struggles to heal from the disaster.

 

The anemone did detach in the process of moving things back into the tank. She's now in a glass cup again and I've built a coral rubble throne around her.

I did lose the yellowtail damsel to the anemone. I'm considering a sixline wrasse for the third fish.

That cynarina looks so puffy and healthy! 🥰

 

Sixline wrasse are actually very beautiful. They can get mean as they age, but I *think one small guy would actually work with the stocking you have now (just be careful that it doesn't accidently dive into that nem and get stuck). 

 

Love the shrooms hidden behind the cynarina too. Tank looks great! 😊👍

You're right. Pink streaked wrasse then, should be less mean. I think the anemone got the yellowtail damsel because it was actually picking a fight with the clowns as it grew up.

Pink-streaked wrasse is a very good choice. I miss mine. She was a wonderful fish - very peaceful, never bothered any of the other fish/corals/inverts, always active and quite vibrant too. 

 

You could look into other small, peaceful wrasses like a possum wrasse as well, if it's available in your area. :happy:

After water change. Still chugging along...will start feeding the anemone whole shrimp again. I haven't been feeding it since after the storm.
