Grimes 80G Rimless Mixed Reef: time for a scape

Mine has been fine for a month. As soon as I moved it to the new tank it went on the hunt. It might well be that the tank is too clean and there is nothing to feed on between the rock anymore. So if it misses food from when I feed the fish it has nothing to scavenge perhaps? 

Quite possible.

Yep all in DT looking amazing, other that the shocking 😱 fact that @Snow_Phoenix was bang on correct with the green brittle star. Just caught the beast arched up with the firefish under it. Was looking at what it was doing as it started to coil it's legs around it... SUMPED until it can be re homed 

Is he likely have multiple emerald crabs in there for company soon?

Could you not just dose the skimmate back into the tank to raise those?

Only reason is the tank is so empty I don't want to add anything else to it until I learn more about the sump and other elements of running a larger tank, not to mention the amount of cash spent this month 🤣. So thought I could mess about with stuff I already have.
