Thanks!  Yes, I know I post too much.  😂

 

We still have 251 days left in this competition, so according to my calculations, at the rate of growth thus far this thread should be 44.82 pages long by then.

A rare group photo.  Until now I thought they were all the same fish.

This tank is amazing! Are you seeing a lot of competition from nuisance algae?

Thanks!  I have like zero nuisance algae other than the cluster of bubble algae that came with my rock.  But I barely have to clean the tank walls.  I started dosing nitrates and phosphates (among other things) as well and the macroalgae have really taken off.  May reduce dosing now because the growth could get out of control.

Also decided to upgrade my return pump to a Sicce 0.5 after consulting with @bvck. Thanks again for your input!

 

Should be arriving in a week or so.

Looking good @Tigahboy! More livestock tomorrow?

 

Have you noticed a pecking order with the fish, anyone getting picked on?

Thanks!  Getting more macroalgae.  🙂

 

So far they all seem to be getting along pretty well.  Haven't noticed any fighting/bullying at all.

New addition update!  Got some blue hypnea from Algaebarn.  Looks like it took a beating during shipping (and lost color), but hoping it will bounce back. 🙏 (that's me praying; not thanking)

Saturday FTS.  Trimmed all the caulerpa in the foreground.  Much cleaner look I think.

Speaking of macros, whatever happened to @Weetabix7?

 

 

Well hello there. 

I got crazy busy with work. 

Still am crazy busy, actually, just jumped back onto N-R very briefly to try to score a small LED light. 

 

Hi Tigah, tank looks gorgeous. Of course.

Unfortunately the blue hypnea didn’t recover from the shipping stress. 😥

Fortunately they are!  Algaebarn sent out a replacement yesterday. 😊

 

Hopefully it does better this time. 🤞

Sad update, I lost this little guy (found his body being feasted on by scavengers in the tank just now). RIP. 😭
