Update on the transition of my Juvie Melanurus Wrasse to Adult.  It's dorsal fin spot is definitely disappearing.  It's about half the size it was last time around:

Tried out Flucanozole for hair algae removal.  This is what the rockwork looks like after one dose and no water changes for a month, then followed by a 20 gallon water change and waiting a week.  

 

 

 

 

Growth Update on my free Zoanthid Polyp that I got from my LFS on Black Friday.  New polyps are growing and the old polyp is fully extended and colored now:

Just over a week ago I added an Emerald Crab to my sump to help out with all the algae my grow light is producing.  I put him in and he ate a bit and then vanished with no sign of him.  Today I checked the sump again and there he was grazing as if nothing had happened.  My apologies on the lighting as he disappears when it's well lit and it's hard to get good lighting down in the sump when it's off:
