Sohal copped a solid whipping for the first couple days, seems to have been accepted now and is eating frozen and a few pellets. Still confused by the Nori sheets.


I tried to dissipate the aggression with bulk feedings - desjardini, orange shoulder and naso look like swimming footballs.


Clown tang is also putting one some weight, was pretty skinny when it went in. 


Orange shoulder looks like its about to transition to adult colours, is a muddy yellow now.

Bumped into Jules at Vebas on the weekend.  :cheers:


Picked up a couple more fish - Sohal Tang (brave or stupid, haven't decided yet) and a Yellow Coris Wrass. 


The Sohal is still copping it a bit from the powder blue, hopefully subsides in the next few days. 


The tang group is now; Powder Blue, Orange Shoulder, Clown, Sohal, Yellow, Desjardini and a Blonde Naso. 


I think a 2 -3 more wrasse and 3-4 more tangs and I'm done. Probably go a Yellow Eye Kole Tang, Convict, Blue and maybe either a second blonde Naso (female) or Yellow.

Added a 6 line wrasse and a Clown tang. Both are tiny, hopefully they don't destroy my tank in time. 


I think from now on, I'm only adding fish that can serve a purpose for me. Which is pretty much wrasse for pest eradication and tangs for algae eating. 


A small group of yellow coris would be cool..

Hi Steve


Without having seen the set up or anything like that. But by the sounds of it, the set up is incredibly neglected. 


Personally, I would nuke all the live rock and start over. There are lost of different ways to do it with acids, sun and bleach etc. I reckon the reward of starting with the seeded rock would be far outweighed with all the nasty algae pests that would likely come with the rock.
