Added a few pieces of Dry Rock. Tried to snap a pic of the clowns in the 29g. They love to glass surf in this corner.

No idea why the glass surf here. Sometimes i see the female all the way at the top of the tank glass surfing, almost breaking the surface.

Specific gravity is low in 50g. Combating Ich one day at a time. The Gramma is upset with me because I moved his favorite rock from the tank (the one with the kenya tree coral).

29g looking great. Didn't mention I got a Red Headed Goby a few days ago. It's so adorable and active. The Pajama Cardinal is really coming out of his shell more. He's been exploring the tank alot, when my LFS comes in stock i want to get a few more to finish up that tank.

I see yellow tail damsels and i just love them. Why do they have to be so mean!

Oh! I love chromis, though the blue green reef chromis takes the cake for me. Thats why I have them.

When the 50g is ich free I can finish off the stocking options. So many choices...

I've been watching my 50g. I know a FW dip will get rid of the ich on the specific fish and but not clear the system. What if I do the FW dip on the Royal gramma and then put him in the 29g until the 50g clears up. He looks the worse. I dont see any white spots on anyone, but his flashing is so bad he has a uncolored spot on his side from where he scratches.

Okay, scary... I put him in the container for the freshwater dip. At first he was belly up and breathing heavy. Scared me but I perservered. Waiting out the last 10 minutes now. Keeping a close eye.

Hope you didn't keep him in there for 10 mins.

Longest you want him in there for is like 3-4mins tops.
