Aww thats not sounding good....maybe he willshow up eventually. I would lose my royal gramma for days at a time, even during feeding he wouldn't come out so there is some hope left.

I wish you luck though, I usually try to be optimistic.

As noted by my additional purchase of more things form aquacon. LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So I got my phone call from aquacon today to confirm shipping arrival for tomorrow morning by 9:30. I do like that about this company, they not only email you they actually calll you to make sure youll be home.

While I had her on the phone I tried to get something for my dead shrimp but she wasnt budging. Now if my new order comes in ok I'll be happy. I may not recommend them in the future based on my last purchase but I would buy from them again if the price is right and I can't get the item anywhere else reasonably, liek the barnacle blenny. CANNOT wait for tomorrow to arrive. His barnacle cluster is all set up and waiting for him.

Also hope the two mushrooms I ordered will be as awesome as the pictures. The red emerald crab is soemthing I;d never seen so thatshould be interesting too.

Pictures will follow in the AM>

I have gotten 4 emeralds from them, all arrived healthy and active. Three were good size, body was equal to a quarter, but the fourth was a MONSTER compared to the others! I acclimated 2 together and just used a plastic cup with the bottom cut off to separate them, wasn't sure if they'd fight.

yeah, their emeralds are huge. I had to put the largest ones in my cube and the still big ones in my new 20g. I hope the red ruby emerald is as cool as the photo, it looks like a neat crab. But with my luck it will be the size of a half dollar and have to go intot he 125g where I'm sure I;ll never see it again. lol

I rarely see my crabs or my shrimp(s). The front part of the reef is too busy for them.

my emeralds build little burrows for themselves during the day and come out at night. I had one demolish a dead hermit yesterday, he was fierce. lol

And on that note, I have decided nomore hermits. They kill each other off too much for my liking. Just found another dead onein the cube and one in the new 20g tank which only had 3 from another tank I moved in there.

I decided to quite using carbon for a while a few days ago as everyone argues about it's uses. Just FYI, my Colt coral and green finger leather have immediately shriveled and are dying. Put carbon back on line to see if I can save them. No other changes made other than the carbon was off line for a few days. Too much LPS and SPS in the tank to grow softies without carbon I guess.

I'm currently not running carbon in my 125g. I seem to have thriving corals so far but I do intend on getting a reactor at some point as I LIKE carbon. Call me a fool but I think it helps. LOL
