    Yellow is out again I shut the pumps off and fed the tank to distract green, got a tub ready to try pull green out if he carries on, yellow is starting to stand up for himself I think green wants to be alpha haha [​IMG]

    Quite possibly

    I always feed a bit more when new fish see added so they don’t see the new fish as a three to their food supply

    No sign of yellow again but watched him bed down last night, looks like I might have to move green on, green doesn't seem to be pulling his weight with the flatworms anyway, on a brighter note my cyano seems to be going as it's not getting as bad throughout the day.

    He came out for a couple days but green made him stay in the corner he's not been out yet today, I'm arranging to lend a trap of a fellow reefer so greens coming out, ive tried to catch him but he's too fast

    Not the easiest thing to catch

    Only trick I’ve heard of is to put food into a net and walk away

    Eventually (days? Weeks?) they get brave enough to swim in

    Worse case scenario I can't catch him I try take out the yellow and then add a few large wrasses next time to break up the aggression and get him put in his place

    New tri-colour bubble tip added lovely little addition very happy with him, not managed to trap a wrasse yet however lol, the trap seems to have given the yellow wrasse a new found freedom to explore the tank a little.

    I've taken the trap out of the tank as the wrasses are starting to get along and the aggression has gone fully, in other news I have a million baby snails and my of petroglyphs have closed up! Also my GSP doesn't look as good the test kits I had are all out of date soo need more but I've done a water change and another is mixing and I've also changed out my phosphate media[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
