Hiding is normal...but not coming out to eat isn't. Are you sure it isn't grabbing food behind the rocks that you can't see? That's how my marine betas entire life is.

The only real way to fish it out, haha, is to remove the bulkhead plumbing and let her flow out into a bucket underneath. I had to do this like 4 times for a chromi that kept going into it. It got old real fast and is a pain in the butt to do....

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

Ok so i am having a huge diatom bloom in my tank.... I can't seem to get my phosphate level down.... I do weekly water changes of 7 gallons, change filter socks every 2-3 days, not sure what to do.... I am trying to find a good media to run in my BRS Duel reactor but can't seem to find any local..... any suggestions on where to get some good media at a good price

Phosguard or gfo are best bets.
