    I was thinking about putting them in the main display but i dont think that may be a good idea. lots of tangs and wrasses not sure they would be abl to eat comfortably ill start them off in the frag tank may move them over

    The fish have been put in their respective tanks. The only thing that scares me is the pipefish going into the water column im going to run home at lunch and try to rig up something so they cant go back there.

    pics coming tonight after work

    In a 60 gallon deep blue tank do you think a mag 7 i believe it is or mag 9 a WP-40 and WP-25 are enough flow for the tank??

    I have anohter powerhead that runs on the bottom of the tank it think its a RIO pump but the pipefish get blown away so i have that turned off?

    any input am i okay with just the returns and WP's?

    Everything is looking good! Really like the wrasses and pipefish. I'm really curious how the blueberry gorgonian will do. Are you feeding it anything? I was really looking hard at those at the swap but wasn't sure how hard it would be to keep alive.

    Yeah those pipefish are really cool always wanted a pair finally made the move. Now i want 2 more for my display lol.

    The blueberry im worried about its a very hard coral to keep but i do have a couple sea fans that are doing okay in my tank so im hopping it wont be an issue. I feed my tank DT's Live Marine Phytoplankton Premium Reef Blend. so im hoping that helps. I also use Live brine shrimp and i ahve a ton of pods in the tank so hoping that helps a little. its going to be an interesting adventure with this blueberry but will see. Some times it looks great some times not so great lol.

    Alright well here we go lol

    I took down the 60 gal rimless it killed me to do it but it was effecting the main display tank. So i sold the tank and moved the CP-40 over to the main display. I put (2) WP-40s in the sump to move some water around down there. I put one gyre vertical n the left side and i have the other one horizontal on the right. The CP-40 is on the back right vertical. the CP-40 doesnt really push that much water so im not really counting on that. Anyone have any suggestions i had them both mounted horizontally but the water was just crashing in the middle i didnt think it was too efficient idk any suggestions would be great!

    Sorry for the terrible pic since adding the new WP to the sump its pushed alot of dirt into the display i put a new filter sock in so it should clear up soon

    Well the tank is bouncing back will see what happens

    As for the filefish well hes gone he decided he wanted to try to eat all my acans after a few days i caught him and returned him. I now have 5 tiny little nudis in there hoping they will demolish the aptasia.

    But for the good news i was able to get my hands on
    Maxspect XF250 Advanced Controller
