After Wilma

I had a small clownfish that got sucked into the filter when the power came on after the hurricane. I tried to save it, but it died yesterday from stress . I have lost three fish so far from hurricanes this year, and that doesn't include the sailfin who died as soon as I added him.

Now I have 6 clownfish, 5 anemones (1 magnifica, 3 Bta's, and 1 LTA), 1 Blood shrimp, 1 flame scallop, and *NEW* a frag of red star polyps in a 125 gal tank.

Thinking of adding a yellow tang, and maybe a blenny or goby.


Comments questions?

Sorry about your loss, seafan. These storms are getting ridiculous.

I understand your loss Ivan got my tank all but the rock. Over here at Orange Beach Al. we have had 3 in the last year that would run you off and then would be days to weeks with out power. Sorry about your loss but just keep on going. We all get hooked with saltwater and the guys at the LFS have the fix.

Yellow tang would be a good addition. I have a 125 and have 3 tangs. Kole tang would also be a good addition. Sorry about your loss.

Just my opinion but if I was going to have one tang it would be a purple tang.
