Yup. I'd leave it. If it gets long and stringy you can pull it off but otherwise I'd leave it be. 

10-4 sounds like a plan

My bad must have missed this post .. I ended up with a melanurus wrasse.. hoping he will eat any pests that might make it into my tank...🤞

 

That thing should pick at anything........ whenever I put anything new into the tank mine circles it like a hawk....

Ha my buddy at work he is a nerd it's kinda his saying when he is losing an argument at work.. usually ends it with ya so what your mom eats chicken and walks off. Cracks me up bc the person doesn't know if they should be offended or not.. 😆..  to that guy I dunno if he was a troll or what but he has like 40 posts and I have seen him say something to markalot about "not having a nano tank" and at least one other person lol

Well haven't posted in a bit bc not much is going on. Been tring to dial in my doser . This thing isnt very accurate but I diluted the solution by 100 percent and now it seems good to go.. 

 

Oh got a new fish today. Have always wanted one!!! Hes all cozy in the qt now.. one more fish and I can take down my old cube I've been using as a qt..

Well #### me... bought another kole tang and this son of a bitch died too after about a month ... I dunno if it’s something I’m doing or that my tank is to young but I think these fish are off my list seeing as I can’t keep them alive😢

 

besides that not to much to update tank is just cruising for now. Waiting for the weather to warm up so I can by some more corals...

The first one you probably messed something up.  Second one was a dud.  Third time should be the charm. 

Seriously, sorry to hear. I hate losing fish,especially when it's one I really wanted.

Ha yea it’s annoying when you do all the research and put in tons of effort (and cash!!) and you lose a fish or coral.. makes me want to take out a shotgun and blast the damn tank lol... oh well going to let the tank mature for a minute and maybe add some super hardy fish...

Well just realized the new tank is 6 months old now😎.. not much to update but I did get a new hammer coral and a blasto frag.  One good thing is the coraline alagae is filling in nicely on the dry rock that I started with, and I have been able to keep it off the back glass! Any who figured I would do the "big" 5 month update lmao corals are a little pissed from the wc in the pics 👨‍🔧

So got this little guy out of the qt and added him straight to the reefer.. he is finally settling in. My damn wrasse has been messing with him pretty bad . Not really nipping at him but swims right up on him and almost head butts the hawkfish.. i think they are both getting along now😅

Thanks!!! I got the doser dialed in better now , and went back to weekly wc.  In my cube I could go months without a wc since I was dosing but I had the tank for a year and used live rock. At this point with using dry rock I think my tank needs the weekly wc🤷‍♂️...also I think my skimmer is running much better now too😊.. got to figure out the sweet spot for these kessils though.. weird bc I run the narrow version on the left side where I see better growth and the right side is a wide version but when I put coral on that side up higher things bleach even though they are set to the same levels..
