It's near on impossible to kill a Kenyan tree so I would not worry it's just having a sulk

My wife would manage to kill it. We had a cactus in the kitchen that she managed to kill. How on earth do you do that

Peacock wrasse is spending more and more time out and about. She eats mysis and brine shrimp but won't take pellets off the sand bed. Also constantly combs the rocks and sand for pods.

Kenya tree is in the process of what looks like shedding a layer of skin and happier for it.

Better pic of wrasse, tank not looking it's best because I haven't wanted to disturb wrasse while she was settling in.

You will find as it gets used to when your lights come on and off it will learn it and be out more and more.
Mine was fussy to start with but now eats anything, flake and pellets.

Hi guys,

Sorry for the lack of contact. The tank is doing fine. I haven’t had time to do more than the basics to keep it clean and the fish and coral healthy.

I haven’t changed the stock at all but plan to buy some new corals in the new year. The only change is that I added more rubble to the sump.

My little boy is taking up all my time and I don’t want to introduce anything when I can’t give it the time to make sure it survives and thrives.

My peacock wrasse has settled into a good routine and eats frozen brine shrimp and combs the rocks for pods.

So far I have a 100% survival rate including the snails.
