How thick is the sand? Enough for the wrasses to sleep in?

It's a 60lb sand bed in a 90 gallon tank, about 2-3 inches thick and it's plenty. I never see the Wrasses at all after they go to bed for the night.

Noticed last night that my Pod population is starting to build up in my sump. Managed to catch them crawling around the glass last night:

Used Flucanozole for green hair algae treatment. Here is how it looked just a few weeks before treatment (notice all the brown and green fuzzy stuff in the rock).

This is one month after using a single dose and not changing the water, then followed by a 20 gallon water change and waiting for a week:

My Freebee Zoanthid Polyp that I got on Black Friday is growing and sending out new polyps now. Nice color to it as well:
