No im not to attached to it. I would have to find out if the lfs would be willing to trade. I only have Petco close by so i will ask next time im up there. There is one place in Virginia (Quantum Reefs) that i asked a while back and he would'nt trade. He said that they are to aggressive and he would'nt be able to sell it.

A cinnomom clown looks alot like a tomatoe clown just darker in color. Like thae trading idea Bryan if i can get someone to trade.

Can you take a picture? How are the parameters? Can be anything from cyano to dinos.

Here is a picture. I just built this frag rack last night and you can see how its already starting to get on the rack. Will test the tank in a little while and post the readings.

Picked up a four line wrasse. Although im not sure i like him. He's eating all my snails and crabs. And i saw him picking on the zoas as well. Thats why i made the frag rack so i could put the zoas in there. The description said they dont bother corals but i beg to differ. I plan on taking him back to where i got him from.

Yea, the lined wrasses can be pesky. I doubt he was after your zoas, but probably something in them. If they see sonething they want, they usually succeed in getting it. They can be difficult to catch as well! My eight line was very good at eating snails. That how I caught him was by using a snail upsidedown as bait.

Yea im going to trap him using a DIY trap. Put him in a hang on basket until i can take him back. I have a six line wrasse and never saw him go after anything like this one did. The four line was going after the nasaurus snails. He would catch them by their little tube and then he would end up dropping him.

I'll assume ammonia is a mid test.
I want to say a cyano issue rather than Dinos. I had similar show up when I had a dot frag rack like that too. Went away when the rack did.
