So the final things are in. I picked up a 3in marine betta, as well as some zoos. The betta is doing good, and the fu manchu really comes alive at night. As I was trying to glue the zoas down he was swimming all around the tank. I'll try and take some zoa pics tomorrow. Very Happy

The filefish has actually grown quite a bit lol. He eats the silver sides out of the dwarf lionfishs mouth. He's about the size of a half dollar now. He is a model citizen Very Happy

Your filefish needs to grow up nice and strong before someone eats him! I'm surprised the wrasse is still doing good.

So I just had a 45 minute fight with rescuing a fish from my overflow. My fuzzy dwarf hadn't been around for 2+ days, so I checked the overflow and there he was (along with my wrasse). I ended up draining my overflow dry, blocking the hole I opened with a net. Then I scooped them up and put them in the tank. Pretty nerve wrecking experience.

He probably was perching on the overflow, got too close to the top and got pulled in is what I'm assuming lol. It's securely tied down now so no fish can get in.

So my 3month old return pump broke, but they are sending a free replacement. While working on the pump yesterday I heard a fish jumping, turns out my two lionfish were in fact males and the red one was chasing the other out of the water. I didn't want them to jump onto me (as I was shirtless on the floor below), so I removed the lighter one and placed him in my sump.

So I returned him today, and bought a fish I have wanted since I had my 6 gallon set up, but it wouldn't quite fit.

Wowzers! Sounds like you've had a lot going on! Glad they are replacing the pump for you, and that you were able to work out the lion fish drama. And, NEW FISH but NO PICS????!!!!!! Shocked

I like the coloring on your new wrasse Nick.

I think your size comparison may be off, the filefish seems closer. He's trying to fool you like one of those ames room illusions.

Any new names for the filefish or the wrasse?
