Unfortunately the Naoko Wrasse did not survive. The LFS I got him from doesn't QT before the fish are put out for sale, so he was fresh from the ocean, and apparently something was wrong. He was eating great the first 3 days, then just stopped. I found him dead in the QT tank yesterday morning... I would love to get one of these in the future as they are very cool little fish. RIP.

Ah man. Well the bright side is that what ever the fish had, didn't make it into your tank.

Finally an update! I will try to be more timely going forward, but life got in the way. Since my last update there have been a few changes. My nutrients have been running low, so I'm having trouble keeping chaeto going. I am going to try one more time with the Chaeto, but if it dies again, I will just go without it. As long as the tank inhabitants are happy without it, I'm fine with not having it. Also, the glass was too thick for my MP40's to stay on (3/4"), so I sold them and went with 2 Neptune Wav's which can be used on up to 1" glass. They are awesome pumps, and incredibly powerful. I have them on the back glass at an angle towards the front of the tank, and can only run them at 10% max or the sand gets blown away. Unfortunately the Dispar Anthias did not do well. I no longer have any of them. On the bright side I have QT'd and added some very beautiful fish who are all doing well, as well as some nice frags that are also doing great. Here's some crappy iphone pics.

Monthly update time. I now have 40 diferent SPS frags in the tank from various vendors and fellow reefers. I have an additional 15 frags coming this week. I have also added a beautiful pair of Watanabei Angels and my Bartletts Anthias are now all in the DT - a total of 8 of them. Here's a few pics.

Love the Watanabei pair! Watching your build makes me itch even more (if that was possible) to upgrade my Reefer 250; thank you and keep up the inspiration!

Not sure you are still checking your thread out but I am thinking of getting the 2 - 36" aquatic life hybrid t5 / LED combos as well for my Red Sea Reefer 750 xxl. It looks like you are using two of the universal stand mounts to hold the the two lights up. How did you connect them in the middle? I appreciate your help and hope your tank is doing well!

Just noticed I stopped getting notifications for this thread.
Bill, how’s it going?
So far I’m loving the coral AND fish choices!

I am also curious about your light setup. I just ordered the 750 and plan to copy the two 36” setup and also curious about how you connected them in the middle. Also how are you likening that light setup?

I'm sorry all, Jimmy is right, the holidays were very busy, but I have made quite a few additions and changes over the past few months. I'll try to post a proper update soon.

To connect the two fixtures, I used powder coated steel plates that I ordered from amazon. it's worked perfectly, and basically makes it into 1 72" fixture. I love the lights. I had some issues with a rusted magnet that caused some big problems and i lost a lot of color in my corals, but once I resolved that, things are really looking good now, and I can see more and more color coming back every day. I love the Radion T5 combo.
