    Wo... that is fast! I know the feeling.. I tried to speed things up when I first re-set up a tank... with very mixed results. Looking forward to lots of success with yours!

    That is not bad for cloudy water. I didn't rinse my live sand on my current tank, and this is what it looked like for a few days. The blue/white filter floss helped to clean it up.

    Snapped a picture of the Watchman and his buddy last night. Still the only fish in the tank.... maybe after Christmas I will try again.

    You can overcome this... my tank just went through most of the same (minus the nudibranchs). Sorry to hear about the fish loss. I love my pistol/fish pair, and lost my first paired up fish during the early months of the tank. Thankfully, the pistols are resilient, and pair up quickly with new fish. I don't have any experience with nudibranch pests, hopefully someone else can help. As for the flatworms, that I have very recent experience with. I did pretty much followed the approach you are proposing. I siphoned, dosed with flatworm exit, water changed, and repeated a month or so later. From what I have read, it is hard to overdose that stuff in the tank. I will say some of those little buggers seemed immune to the treatment. So I added a Six Line wrasse. He seemed to help the most. Best of luck!

    Well, just a small update. Things seem to have finally stabilized in the tank (knock on live rock). The cyan is gone, hair algae is gone, lots of coral growth, and tons of coraline on the back wall. Through all the ups and downs of diseases and what not, I am left with a single fish, my yellow watchman. Him and his tiger pistol buddy are having a blast in the tank. In fact, since there are no other fish in the tank, I see the pistol come fully out into the tank a lot. Seems like every other day se is making a new entrance to their unground lair and closing an old one. Right now kinda leaving the tank as is, with it main being and invert haven. I would eventually like to get another swim thing (maybe a wrasse again, as I saw a flatworm last night), but gun shy and super busy right now with work and home life. A few quick photos this morning. Hitchhikers.... geesh.
