New Bulbs

I replaced my year old 16 watt 5,100K PC bulb with a 19 watt 5,100K PC bulb from Light Bulbs Direct. This bulb grows macro algae fast!

Here is a picture of the wrasse during acclimation.

New Wrasse

The McCosker's came today, it is doing well so far. Hopefully it doesn't jump out with the temporary netting I have. I raised the water level inside the skimmer and opened the air valve more. I hope this will produce more skimmate, so far so good!

Live Aquaria order

I ordered a Maldives McCosker's wrasse from Live Aquaria along with some other fish. The first wrasse was acclimated by my sister because I was away. It jumped out of the tank and died. LA replaced the fish yesterday and the second one died upon arrival. I will try one more time on Tuesday. I hope all goes well with this next shipment. I think LA is trying to get rid of these fish because they are sick or diseased because they are regularly $69.99 and on sale for $34.99. The one that came yesterday had a big white mark on its one side. The five Green Chromis and Tail Spot Blenny are doing great! I'm also rebuilding my wrasse screen with a tighter mesh to prevent the smaller fish from escaping from the tank.

Here is a picture of the tighter mesh netting.
