Noticed that in addition to my Chaeto growth, my pod population is starting to develop as well.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6Dn88j5N0M

Yup, one of it's many uses:


My Melanurus Wrasse continues it's transition.  It's dorsal fin spot is disappearing.

I should use a Turkey baster to clean rocks more often.

It really is.  As mentioned though, the Leopard Wrasse is all about literally picking the right fish.  Half of the shipment that my LFS got in didn't make it Cry   That's why it's best to wait until they do a bulk order and then buy one that is alive and doing well a few weeks later.  

Anyways, I had a request for some updates.  So here they are.

Seems to be working well.  Chaeto is definitely growing and will need to be trimmed before too long.  Anyways, got in on some cheap coral frags at my LFS' Black Friday Sale:
