@Amphrites I think I'm going with Waldo. 

 

Speaking of which, where's Waldo? 😄

Getting pretty lush in here, but there's still a little room in here for more. Any suggestions for future additions to this tank - fish, inverts, macroalgae?

Sad update time: found one of my Red Tigah Cleaner Shrimp all dried up next to my tank.

Looks so tranquil. I want to live in there haha. Sorry about the shrimp, but I will admit that its pretty neat looking. I almost thought it was a photo of a live shrimp. Should preserve him in some epoxy. Or maybe that would be weird. Haha

Photo dump! Also dealing with quite a bit of flatworms and spotted some aiptasia, but otherwise this tank is progressing nicely.

Tank looks great!  I know flat worms can be unsightly if their population gets out of control but I've never had the variety that does damage (thankfully).

Sad update time. Found my wrasse Waldo half dried up in the filter box (jumped through a small gap between the lid and top of the filter box). Pretty bummed. My last shots of Waldo below.

Noooooooooo 😢😢😢

 

Had any luck seeing the wasp? I see mine every night but to get a picture of her the other night, I had to wait up until 2am when she started hunting the front area of the tank.

My waspfish still refuses to come out in the open (even with lights off). I haven't seen her in a few days as well, so starting to get a little worried. Hopefully she'll pop up at some point.

This tank looks so empty without Waldo. I did spot my waspfish last night (of course hiding in a crevice). I've never seen her out and about though. -_-

Also added some caulerpa taxifolia.

Evidently you and I got the extreme nocturnal wasps. Mine comes out when it’s dark and only to the front of the tank around 1-2am

It’s almost like I don’t even have a waspfish. 😅

Decided to get a couple Blue Sapphire Damsels to handle my growing flatworm population.  Happy to report I don't see any flatworms now.

Peppermint Shrimp to hopefully tackle some aiptasia.

And some other stuff that I haven't been able to take photos of yet.

Beautiful as always. I also like cotton candy algae, I had it once growing in my sump when I had a refugium going. Have no clue how it got in there.

Thanks! The cotton candy algae is definitely becoming a bit of a centerpiece. Such a pretty color. I have another tiny clump growing in the back as well waiting for its day to shine.

Ah nice! Looking great. I love those damsels. I got one for the same reason a few tanks ago and it did a wonderful job at cleaning up the flatworms.
