Helfrichi added, what a marvelous fish.

Added my Helfrichi today! I was expecting him to hide immediately and not come out for a while... which was not the case. He hovered in the middle of the water column and all of the resident fish came up one by one to greet and check him out. Male maroon touched nose to nose for a few seconds and I think they will be best of friends. No aggression to speak of which is awesome. When I first added the Mystery Wrasse, everyone picked on him for a few days so I'm really glad with how things turned out.
Yesterday I changed out the GAC and GFO, cleaned the skimmer head and vortech, and tomorrow I'll be doing a small water change with reef crystals (been using regular IO).
I have my camera charging while I leave the lights off a bit to subdue the fish while Helfrichi gets accustomed. When I feed I'll try to get some shots of the beautiful new fish.
His name is Bill Murray.
