  1. A new school year and new students at McBride this a 3 grade classroom so some students remain. 

    The tank went thru a rough patch. I wasn’t doing water changes enough and the light was set for to long and to intense. We are back on track. I did add a small yellow tang to eat hair algae. The kids know he is just visiting. When new fish are added I do it during class time and the kids love helping a acclimate. If there are 8 kids the fish gets really acclimated, because  I let each kid add a scoop  of water. 

    I asked the teachers to write an update on the kids daily reactions to the tank. During writing time she had the kids write letter !!!

    They are so precious

    [language filter], how many names has this fish been given? Its in its juvenile stage as of now, when it grows and changes you will see why they call it a SplitLevel, but Coral Hogfish is also a name used for it too.


    So my blue and yellow spotted fish will turn pink and yellow ?

    If so that would be cool

    Fish nerd bells are ringing! @Exodus is correct, split-level hogfish (or Eclipse hogfish, as I know it; same creature). They’re not blue, as the lighting suggests, but burgundy and yellow. Gets huge and will eat your inverts, as well as smaller fish once it’s large enough, although the pointy little face of a juvie is hard to resist! Cuban hogfish is my fave, but the Eclipse is a good hog, too. 

    It is blue and yellow. Brett said coral hog fish.
