Going out and buying frags is almost an impossibility here. I wanted to pop a couple of frags in to see how happy they were. Those in the tank are fine,but rather add one or two and progress from there.

So local LFS has several frags most of the SPS appear to be in various stages of RTN ,  Hysterix looked a dull brown but otherwise healthy,as did some Hydnophora and a Galaxius.

Got them home ,settled in , what happens to the Hysterix? The bloody Nox is eating it....not even got massive polyps ffs , so seems like I get the Nox out which is almost impossible or stick to things with very small polyps like Montipora capricornis or foliosa. Deep water Acropora and fire corals...not happy but to get him out the tank basicaly has to be stripped...that will teach me to think all Centropygie are born equal.. :evil:

Well, that sucks!  I'd get a fish trap and get the angel out.  You'll catch it eventually.  Maybe bait it with some LPS  :P

Right what I have also done is order a couple of corals from Reefworks. In the past I had a purple plateing monti that went up in layers and whorls,it wasnt Capricornis ,but Foliosa.
Reefworks has a lovely purple and a green,and also an electric green mwhilst not named beyond Montipora the pics do show a nice formation.
Also a Euphyllia paradivisa and an easy to keep Acropora that does not have wavy polyps.
Hopefully as all the SPS have small polyps the Nox will leave them alone as it does not touch LPS or things with small polyps.
Hopefully coming Tuesday,will post pics  :D

Thanks:
