Liz's Waterbox 70.3

So only four days after the vibrant dose and almost all the algae is gone. Rear glass is also very clean. No changes to any corals, haven’t noticed any dead snails or anything. Tank is looking really good. 
 

I have the algae scrubber running so if anything decides to come back it will grow in there. Theoretically anyways.

Still some tufts on this rock, but it was pretty thick at one point.

So one of my zebra dartfish jumped through a teeny tiny gap of my screen lid. Found him yesterday, I am totally bummed. I ordered a lid made by waterbox that covers completely to the glass. Shipping was like $40 which really sucks. I can’t believe it fit through a 1/4in gap. 
 

Now I need to figure out where to put a new QT so I can get some fish. SO is using a desk for school since he has been doing his schooling online due to covid. Maybe on the bedroom dresser? Haha.

Happy where the tank is. Now I need to fill it up with corals!

Algae scrubber is starting to grow! Haven’t opened it up for a couple weeks.

Got new fish a few days ago, and a new lid by waterbox that sits flush, no gaps. My longnose hawkfish has been thrown in the sump because he is being a bully. Im not sure what I will do with him. It was a pain in the butt to catch, I almost don’t want to risk putting him back in the display..

 

Also got an ecotech power brick to run my return pump if we lose power. My SO has been really stubborn on buying a generator for the house.

Finally looking like a reef. The fish make the tank so colorful.

And of course, my boy Jasper.

Had an issue with my Santa Monica algae scrubber. The leds were really dim and my algae died off. Messaged them today (on a holiday) and they emailed me back 12mins later saying they would send a new light fixture out. No haggling, super fast service. Im am really impressed. Hopefully I won’t have this issue again.

Sounds like everything has been going well, besides that fish jumping.  Tank is looking good!

I really like them too. These are carbeeryi anthias. Im really hoping they do well. Im feeding like five times a day with different foods to make sure they eat well. The smallest one has a sunken in tummy and spits out food a lot. Right now he only keeps down Reef Caviar eggs. I have never had to switch fish onto different foods, I just hope over time he picks at everything else. 
 

I feed flake, pellets, rods food, mysis, blood worms (once a week), brine shrimp, and reef caviar. Crossing my fingers!

I had mix results with anthias.  I had a trio for over a year once before my tank crashed, then tried more and each time they slowly start to disappear =(.

Well I sold my hawkfish today. Im going to miss Larry, but he needs another home. This tank is fully stocked for sure. And he is a meanie. So...

 

At least everyone else seems to be doing good.
