Moving N. multifaciatus

I moved the three shellies from their ten to the fifty that will be a Tanganyika community tank. Netted one guy, moved two in their shells.
One shell traveler is still hiding. He is moving around, sometimes I see his caudal fin. One shell traveler is picking out a new one, diving into the nearest when I look.
The netted guy is still hiding in the rocks that will belong to the calvus.

I hope they will be out arranging sand in the morning.

55 gallons, pool filter sand, coral sand, driftwood, stones and shells. pH=7.8

Wish me luck!

Leave the lights off in the tank for a day to allow them to get used to their new home.

Hope everything goes well.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Good idea. I saw the first shell guy for about a quarter of a second when I turned the lights on. I'll turn them back off.

The lights are back on and they scouting around to see where they will dig up sand to mark their territories.
