So far everything seems to be running ok. Took the domino damsel back to the pet store. Thinking about getting a protein skimmer not sure yet. I have had some mixed thoughts over it. Some say yay some say nay. for a 30gal. Funny you said the flame hawk nibbled at the stars. Well he did nibble at the other coral the one he is in the pic with. When i saw him do it the dang coral fell off the stone he was living on and i guess swam for safety he is somewhere behind the wall of live rock... not sure if he is dead or what.. didnt feel like hunting for him... any suggestions on that.

hmmm

most likely still alive and waiting for your retrieval...sometimes i cant get to some frags in the same situation as yours and a day wont hurt to bad on some species but the sooner you get to it the better.
