New tank member! I know the risks. Hopefully he behaves 🤞 I’ve always thought filefish were super cool and this one needed a new home.

First day of dosing!  Seachem reef trace elements into display and Kalkwasser into ATO.

Unfortunately brought the filefish back to LFS (picked the one with my perceived best husbandry). He will hopefully live in the large sump with plentiful aiptasia and pods. Within one week in my tank he ate all of the aiptasia and acans (his favorite) and also nipped at the elegance and pipeorgan. Elegance is recovering but both acans look pretty bad.  

 

On a positive note... I started a baby Artemia hatchery and have been feeding the tank live food for the past 3 days. The clowns love it. Enjoy watching them hunt!

That's too bad about the filefish, definitely a double edged sword for aptasia removal. At least you were able to re-home it without trouble. Do you have any photos of the damage done to the elegance and acans? I'd be curious to see.

Hi @Christopher Marks!! 

 

Here is is a pretty top-down pic to start.

Then some sad acans.

The elegance is opening up again at least.F3C725FC-4934-4DF4-BC61-9E03C6D8FC9A.thumb.jpeg.354f563c47038ee04a63cf77aad230e1.jpeg

Sweet new frags @DaVinciClown, where are they from? Are you going to mount more SPS on the back wall? I think that's pretty cool.

Frags were from @AquaSD!  Everything has been mounted 🙂 Acros on the back - hopefully shadowing is not an issue. Doing a 4 week acclimation starting at 50%.  41 corals/anemones in the tank total now.
