    Reaper's 57 Gallon Mixed Reef

    Hello everyone! Just an update on my tank. Life has been very busy lately but wanted to share what's going on. With the tank since my last update. All 3 chromis died for some reason. The dotty back is still in the tank being himself(pretty sure he killed the wrasse last week). The tank now homes a yellow eyed tang, gold blenny and a very recent candy candy hogfish. On the coral front weve added a montipora undata frag, and one unknown monti frag I got from my lfs. As well as two ora hammer frags. Also added a derrasa clam about a month ago who is doing very well. As far as tank health it's doing well. Just finished combating red cyno algea with amazing success thanks to chemi clean, though it did take about a week compared to the 48 hours it claims. Below are pictures :). Also going to be starting the Triton method this week. Have the core 7 and sending in my water sample. As of right now the only dosing Is amino acids.

    Orchid dottyback Sick

    Hey guys! So I noticed today that my orchid dotty back is missing ALOT of scales. I noticed it the other day but just thought he maybe scrapped himself on something. Hes hard to get a picture of but here's the pictures I have. Also worth noting no one else in the tank is having any issues that I can physically see.

    Remove the two kpms as it was way to much flow sadly so back to the single kps till I buy another. Also bought a trio of blue Caribbean crhomis. 5 asstrea snails. 5 zebra hermit crabs and 12 TINY blue legged dwarf hermits. Also got a blue wrasse who I'm surprised lived through the night. These were taken Tuesday last week. Also got a pink torch coral. I'll attach pictures including the wrasse the day I got him.

    Update again! Added two kpm wavemakers and boy are they strong (I'm worried to strong as my frogspawn is mad that they came on at 100%) I have them both running at 15% max. Are they set up correctly and any pointers you guys can give? Here's my frogspawn now vs the other day.

    Fire fish missing end of tail

    Still attempting to catch mine, though the clown pair has decided they like his rock so now hes hiding on the other side of the tank ?

    Fire fish missing end of tail

    Trying that method now, bad news is he killed the last firefish, good news is now theres no more firefish to kill? ? Lesson learned on this one for sure, when live aquaria said it would "defend its lair" I thought maybe chase away, not kill outright.

    Any advice on how to catch this guy? I couldn't get him last night and came home a moment ago to another dead firefish missing a tail -.-

    Which RODI unit do you use?

    I went and bought a 44 gallon brute I just keep full of filtered water then mix the salt in 5 gallon buckets (I'm wanting to fix that and mix about 20ish gallons though as my system volume is around 60ish) only downside is the brute is downstairs and the tank is upstairs ?

    Which RODI unit do you use?

    Not exactly sure what all is in my water but out of tap its around 180 TDS ?

    Which RODI unit do you use?

    I might catch some flak for this but I use the Aquatic Life RO Buddie with the DI unit on it making it a four stage. For my city water I get 0 TDS so ?‍♂️

    Fire fish missing end of tail

    It was defiantly the dotty back, caught him chasing one of the surviving firefish, the one who lost his tail died ?

    Also the dottyback makes since as the firefish's and him were all in the same general rock work. One is out and about but the other is hiding in that rockwork atm. Then the one missing his tail is in the fuge dying ?
