My dummy pink margin fiary looks like he spends to much time with his face in the glass. His lips look smashed and pushed back slightly. He looks so dumb lol. Been like 2 or 3 days now and I noticed him today swim into the glass and stare at himself. Its ugly. With he ever stop?


He still eats though which is good

No it's in the display with all the fish and wrasses. Hes active. Eating good. But seems like he enjoys rushing himself to glass and lips are slightly pressed flat bottle capped lol open a little.

Feeding medicated all fish are eating it. Even the clown that had no interest in food. I havent been able to see him poop yet but the fact hes more active around the tank and taking food. Visually he looks happier and healthier. That being said I am still feeding medicated food for another full week atleast to play it safe.

anybody have experience with Microbacter7? i ordered it... Ive read it can help withGHA or algae outbreaks.. i plan on dosing like 1/3 amount slowly to hopefully boost bacteria and mico fauna to help combat this new tank GHA that seems to not go away..trying to stay away from Chemicals but ive read about adding bacteria over time?

any thoughts?

I actually might move the 2 powerheads that are in the center of my tank on both sides of overflow. To the sides so 2 tunze 6095s back corners each. One on upper end and 1 in middle. And see if that helps flow maybe to help with algae

Welp. Woke up pissed today. Found my pink margin on hardwood floor dead. I have a top no idea how or when he jumped out. So heated

And I have a artfully acrylic top that was 300 bucks too. Err

Now I need a replacement.

I get the feeling, mine is getting pretty damn full! Then I go to the LFS for live black worms and can't help but 'look' only to find some more rare-ish fish that has been sitting there for two weeks begging me to bring it home.

Im in a small dilemma with my parameters.
My po4 and no3 are still 0.id like to lift them to atleast no3 to 5 and po4 to .03. But I'm scared to as im.still fighting off gha.

Should I stay where I'm at and continue to feed my fish and wait for all algae to be gone before worrying about numbers or should I dose no3 and po4 tiny amount to get something detectable got my lps.

I def dont want dinos

These 2 should be happier in the display than a boring 10g
