    That's a fuzzy dwarf, no way would I risk putting a volitan in the reef. Right now I'm slightly concerned for the yellow clown goby, we'll see what happens I guess. Also I can't find the red coris wrasse since I did all the changes yesterday, hopefully he's ok in there somewhere

    Thanks Yote! Great news-- came home from work, Mr. Coris wrasse is cruising around happy as ever. The bad news today though is it looks like my euphyllia cristata has taken a turn for the worse, I'm not expecting it to last much longer. I've had it for over a year and fragged 2 of the polyps out, now the main colony of 12 polyps is crashing, bummer.

    Copperband butterflys have been known to nip at lps corals and clams I believe. And also with a koran in there pretty much all zoanthid corals and lps and clams are completely out of the question. And don't red coris wrasses eat shrimp and snails?



    I like all the livestock. Lookin good. Hopefully you have future plans for a tank upgrade.

    JCE,Copperbands are a lot like mandrines.They tend to do great in tanks that have a lot of aiptasia.I think thats the key to keeping them long term.

    The Coris wrasse is still a pretty small juvenile, maybe 1 1/2" or 2", and he doesn't seem to bother anyone, there's plenty of turbo snails that are doing fine as well as little nassarius snails. The only shrimp I have right now is a coral banded, and I'm not really in the market for any more b/c I think the dwarf lion would eat them pretty quickly. I don't have any zoos or LPS besides the euphyllia, and the koran doesn't bother it at all.
    I don't know if I'll upgrade the tank, if I do it's a long ways away!
