Just annoyed that I seem to be getting so many Females that have Dropsy from Sorority Tanks and elsewhere at the minute. At least it seems the males are better cared for.

I have decided that the Elephant Ear Male I was given, does not have any issues. I think that he just needs to strengthen in the flow of the filter as I have been watching him all morning and has no issues what so ever, except when he swims in front of the filter. I aim to block the flow of the filter to the front of the tank using another piece of slate that I will cover in moss. Gradually I will move the output nozzle to up the flow over a duration of time. It is currently day 2 and he still doesn't recognise his food, oh well keep trying.

In other news, Opal likes to play Flare "Hide and Seek" around his IAL

You know I have only noticed that I did not post a photo of Cobalt as he has been named, instead I posted the empty tank shot......oooops
Let me fix that, let me introduce Cobalt.
He loves his Squad of Corydoras and hangs out with the Sterbai's, I have to cup him so that he leaves the algae wafers alone.....
He also loves sleeping with his head in the crypts next to that rock (1st shot)
I can confirm that this should not have been a rescue...... but free fish in great health!!

Urgh getting really bad at keeping this updated. I have got into SW at the minute so a lot of my attention is focused on learning that.
I did however manage to finally get a couple of good shots of Opal
His colours are weird, some days he looks so blue, others he has hardly any

Scientific name is Thor amboinensis, also known as Squat, Sexy or Anemone Shrimp
Haven't named them individually yet, tehy still are waiting on the first molt. After that sexing and naming should be easier
I'm thinking abusive names as they wilfully trample my Corals

Stunning! And the fact that they trample the corals just makes them more... impressive. lol

Honestly all of my clean up crew are bulldozers in this tank, Hermit Crab likes to pluck off parts of my Zoa Corals, my Turbo snail ignores the nuisance algae and eats my macro's(seaweed). Got more Corals in the post today so will see how they hold up when i add them
