    Glass is totally clean! All looks well except the majano army I have started. Thinking about a bicolor angel, Klein’s butterfly, or a raccoon butterfly to help with that but not sure. I’m also thinking about bringing the Vlamingi brothers back but I’m not sure on that yet.

    There are so many nems it’s hard to count! There are even more majanos though. Funny thing I’ve noticed is that their sting may not be as strong as reported. They are growing on my clam and it is fully extended like it doesn’t care.

    Looks great! How long did you go without anyone checking in on it in person? Are you expecting to be able to get back in regularly now (not sure if you guys are starting in person or remote)?

    It was longest back when we were under stay at home orders. Maybe the longest was 3 weeks. Even though we are remote I have been teaching from my classroom so I’ve been in daily all week this week. I plan to continue to go in too.

    So I’ve been losing my mind and I’m breaking reefer law. In the last couple of months I have added some questionable fish to the tank. First in an attempt to control the majano problem we added two bicolor angels. They like the majanos which is good they look pretty also good. They also enjoy the Kenya trees probably good too![​IMG]
    We didn’t stop there recently added three more new fish. 1 Klein’s Butterfly 1 Clown Tang(3rd times the charm?) and 1 Black Vagabond Butterfly which is totally not reef safe. [​IMG][​IMG]. Today we just got in two more and the last? [​IMG][​IMG]. Yup a Sohal I know they’re mean but I’ve been dreaming of one for years and a saddle back butterfly also not reef safe. The last two are still in my 120 at home for observation.

    Sorry for the bad pics but I don’t really clean the acrylic and even if I did it’s so scratched it would matter.

    whaaaaaaaaat!?! Jealous of those additions, but really hope they dont live up to their stereotypes.
    I had 1 clown tang once... he would make my Atlantic Blue look like a wuss!

    Any updates?

    Somebody beat the crap out of the Vagabond we pulled him and he didn’t make it through the day yesterday.

    Awesome nem pic! Add it to that Nem Pics only thread....

    Sorry about the Vagabond loss. Do you have a suspicion as to who the guilty party was? Is that why the next pic is the Sailfin, is that his mugshot?

    The clown and sohol tang are two of my favorites! I wish I had the tank to support them.
