    Picked up a green coris and melanurus yesterday. Sealed up the canopy so I dont have any suicides. I'll make sure and post updates.

    It's been a couple of weeks and probably safe to post an update now! I've had mostly bad luck with Naso Tangs during my time in the hobby. Most of them don't eat and just waste away. This guy took about three days and then started to pick at some mysis. After a week he started to eat pellets and I knew he would make it. He's now eating everything that I put into the tank, including Nori on a clip. I can't wait to see them all grow now that the tank is fully stocked! I had an Orange Linkia for about a year in 2012-2013, it seems but they've become more rare lately. I've been seeing the blue on LA, but haven't seen orange, red or purple in quite a while. I found this Burgundy Linkia in ARC about a month ago and he's been doing great so far. By great, I mean alive since I can't tell much else about seastars. They're basically alive until they're dead so here's hoping for the best!

    Sorry to hear that, what a bummer. When starting up my 'new' system, I got an instant cycle because all of my old very established live rock and live stock was moved over. I assumed that all the maturity of my old system would carry over to this new system, despite one rock being new as well as new sand. Maybe that isn't the case. I've ruled everything else out. I've done enough water changes to basically cycle out all old water over the course of a couple months. So despite moving all my old live rock over, maybe a tank upgrade with new sand and one large new dead dry rock is enough to sort of reset the tank's life. In which case maybe this 'new' system is too young for acropora. I'm getting algae blooms now, hair algae, cyano, and what looks like dinos as of two days ago -- algae blooms I'd associate with a new tank, blooms that were taken care of years ago in my old tank prior to moving everything over. It feels like a new tank starting from square 1. Maybe this could account for acroporas dying. Even now, throwing cheap acros in, they perish. Softies are LPS are 100% healthy and happy. At this point I ruled everything else out. Now I wait for this new era of uglies to dissipate then I'll try again. I did borrow a UV sterilizer from a buddy. I'm waiiting for a mj1200 to arrive in the mail today and I'll hook it up. I'm not anticipating anything amazing happening but at this point it couldn't hurt.

    So excited! My last planned fish is on the way. I've been waiting for one to pop up for about two months. Wasn't planning on a male, but it was a perfect 5" size and I had to do it. Divers Den don't let me down! Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
