  Peacock wrasse came out this morning for a little while got chased about by Doug a bit but knew that was going to happen for a while then buried himself ,
This will be the norm for a while until they settle down , soon as possible hopefully so they both get to come out together without the squabbling,got a few pictures and a picture of the new rock with multicolour polyps on that will open up soon as well

Hey, Dave's back!  8D

I don't know much about wrasses, so will definitely be following along 👍🏻

Good to see you back Dave, missed your late night humour & great tips. Just been reading myself on wrasse compatibles as have a Melanarus on order. Many reviews says it gets on well with other wrasse... but as we know down to the individuals character! Will be closely watching your findings

Best of buddies now , odd little quick chase that lasts about 3 seconds but apart from that all seems to be hunky dory.

Well the two wrasse seem to have made it through the initial stages of introduction and swim around together ok now , haven't even noticed any chasing over last few days in fact they seem to have become good friends even when food goes in ,
Done a water test today and all came up fine aswell so happy days so far.
Looking for another edition to the tank now ,
Thinking sand sifter but something with a bit of colour to add instead of usual dull brown colours want to try and that colour factor to tank ,

Hi mate, well Covid shut down the reef and lately I have just sold the RSM system (£250!!) as I am moving to Germany in a couple of weeks now, maybe set up something small out there (White Corals will be LFS  *D *D)

Thanks:
