Also, why do I feel like I must buy this?


I simply can't do it, but I will tell you this. If everything goes right i will start picking up these pieces as they are simply to pretty not to. I have a VIP card for SBB Coral so I think I may wait until then to pick up some more? I just hope that they shut this TCK sale down quick because I don't know how much longer I can hold out. They are now running 40% off.

Only spent a little over $100 on 4 new sticks. I would say that is pretty controlled!

I am still kicking my self for NOT buying that Flamethrower. I blame @OZ_SPS

My Carbon dosing is doing its job!!

Nitrates are at 10.1
Phosphates are at .22

So I am feeling pretty good about where we are at. I am going to bring down the Phosphates a bit more and we should be in good shape. I can already tell my corals are coloring backup. Also have some of the New Acros already encrusting so that is super rewarding!

Well we did a thing today!

We gave Henry (Or Male Valentini Puffer) a sweet little girlfriend!

She was still in the box but Henry couldn't help himself, he was already showing off. She is much smaller then him so we wanted to make sure she was going to be safe going into the tank.

@Dierks how is this pairing going? Do you still have both of them together? Something I’ve been wanting to do for my male also.

Nope, they did okay for about 2 weeks, then the chasing started to the point that the female was stuck in the upper corner. So I separated them and tried again about a week later. Same result. I have since separated them as I think the Female I put in the tank with Henry was just a little too small yet.

I didnt want any injured so I pulled it. I think I will try again in the 125 with two toby puffers hoping the extra space will give them a bit more hiding space when needed. It was so strange they would swim together 99% of the time. I think Henry was just getting frisky and the FM wasn't having any of it.

I still have the large Male i nmy tank.

That’s a shame. Was Henry super quiet before she went in? My male is super chill And interactive, feeds from my hand and lets my rub his back 😀. I also have a blue spotted puffer, they get along mostly but every so often the blue spot gets a little too close and my Toby darts off because he is slightly smaller.
