I Once tried to acclimate a mollie for the purpose of Algae eating.. don’t think I was patient enough when acclimating...

That aside I found it didn’t handle the wave maker and struggled with the flow.

These seem to be doing well, they stick close to the powerhead now to avoid the Lionfish. I do wonder how the fry if I get any will adapt?

Anyway someone sent me some mushroom corals today

I am now considering this tank fully stocked as far as fish go, with the exception of a small feeder fish school of mollies or guppies. Will be turning my attention to adding macro algae and might try some more invasive soft corals if I can get my hands on them

I know what I said but one more fish won't hurt right?  95% certain that this is a female Dwarf Fuzzy Lionfish  :tongue-love:
