    How do you guys feel about a wrasse as the first fish

    Bird netting works at HD and lowes, doubling it up makes smaller squares for smaller fish.

    Red soft turfy algae

    Okay, small diameter acrylic tube with a plastic brush attached to the end and attach a vinyl hose to it. Syphon it out as you brush it. I've done it long ago and it worked. Hey, that's the best I could come up with! Lol

    Adding Kno3 (Potassium Nitrate)?

    I have dosed Kno3 and still have some in solution in a gallon jug. Always had 0 No3 and Po4 and was feeding heavy. Took several days of dosing to get it up to detectable. Now I keep it at 10ppm and po4 at trace and hardly ever dose it now. "maybe buying 3 pounds of the stuff was overboard" Yes...

    Depending on the size of wrasse, small fairies especially, they may get through the egg crate. Build a screen top. Everything you need to make one is at HD or lowes. Cheep and will let more light into the tank than egg crate.

    Big issue.

    My wife can be a firecracker at times, but she understands that the tank is my hobby. She's helped me numerous times with it when I needed someone's help holding something, lifting etc...... but it's still "my thing". Attempts to include her over the years in it leads to her just not wanting to...
