The pipes! The clams! It's all clear to me now. 😁

Did you get more chromis? I could have sworn there used to be 2 of them.

There where 2 and then 1 after one killed other, I just ordered 4 more and they are still pretty aggressive toward each other.

No matter what you start with, it seems you'll always end up with one.

I was actually thinking about getting one of those blue chromis. Perhaps exactly one is indeed the perfect number! 😅

Don’t get one.... lol 😂 

 

I only got 2 to check if water was good for fish. Then felt bad that it was alone.

They get really big and nasty, pass if you can. They will be gone by the time I finally decide on the clownfish pair I want.

Sounds like a bad plan! Pass it is! 😄 I'll get something kinder and gentler if I ever get a fourth fish.

 

When's the new rock and sand coming in? And what kind of rock did you get?

Fiji pink live sand and Carib sea life rock with “no cure” time. I’ll still cure it for a few weeks in my EVOreef. 

Should be here next week

32 as a minimum, but 34 to 35 is more common for a reef tank.  The more diluted your water, the lower the other parameters will be too.  If it's low, bring salinity up slowly by topping off with saltwater.

I think misbars are really cute, but the orange on the regular is nice too...
