Any change on the rock? I'm interested to see how long the rock takes to blend. I'm debating weather to buy all live or a combination for my 150.

I'll try to post some pictures this weekend. The last batch of rock I bought is already getting a coat of coraline algae.

The Kleins is still in Quarantine. Doing fabulous, eating great, wonderful fish. I've just been lazy and haven't gotten around to moving him yet. Its on my agenda for this weekend.

(you knew this was coming...)
Perhaps a picture of this beauty is also on the agenda this weekend?

I purchased the Kleins Butterfly on October 17. Today I added it to my 180. Why did I quarantine this fish for 6 weeks? Well, part was just laziness, because I was ready to add it after 5 weeks. But, the primary reason was to ensure it was conditioned well to handle the relentless battle that was about to occur when I added it to the tank.

Sure enough, as expected the fish was challenged. The Clown Tang and the FoxFace were the fish that took the most interest. The FoxFace especially spent a good 30 minutes pursuing the Butterfly, but never really could challenge it much due to the smaller size of the Butterfly and its ability to gracefully move between the small crevices in the live rock.

I added the fish about 4 hours ago. I just fed the fish, and to my amazement the Kleins came swimming right out into the feeding frenzy and is aggressively eating and defending its space. Very cool. Knock on wood and hope it does well tonight as the lights go down.

I took a nice close up pic of the live rock and dry rock. The new pieces I added a few weeks ago are blending nicely. I will post the pic sometime later this week.

Klein & dry rock pics

Ok, so here are the best pics I could get of the Kleins Butterfly. This fish blends in so well with the rock that most of the pictures were perfect but almost impossible to distinguish the fish from the rock! I also took a snap shot of the dry rock. The center piece of rock is my newest dry rock addition from my last shipment that I posted on this thread. The rock on the right is established rock. You can see the coraline spreads fast!
