    Nope hes only been in the tank a few weeks but I don't feed anemones, in my last tank I had the same type of bubbletip and it ended up splitting loads and loads had about 30 of the buggers over 2-3 years Haha

    Did some routine maintenance this morning including a WC and hit a couple Aiptasia with vinegar and melted the buggers! Going to make it a daily thing until they are gone! It seems this dry rock I bought mustn't of been very dry! I've had 5 Aips so far!

    I found a smear of epo putty to entomb them when they disappeared into the rock usually did the trick.

    Trying again with a bigger silver belly wrasse hes almost twice the size of the green one, the green still was a little dominant and yellow has hit the sand I'm hoping he puts green in his place when he comes out again. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Had a busy morning!! Trying to catch the green wrasse! And the mrs helped out aswell!. In the end I made a long handled net to catch him and it worked a charm after two hours trying with hands in the tank! So hes out and took him to my LFS and swapped him for some zoo Plankton [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
