Lost two of the cardinals. First fish I have had die in years. Only 5 days and the first two died today. The others look okay, but are not eating. You win some, you lose some. These were suppose to be tank raised and eating frozen food. Maybe the last three will settle in. Water parameters are perfect (as I can get it) and everything including hard corals and all other fish are flourishing. I hate killing a fish.

Any updates on the cardinal(s) today?

Lost two, still have three. They don't want to eat. They seem active at night, so hope they are getting some copepods.

I have one lone little fire fish and he is the bravest thing I have ever seen. He stay in the open water column and eats tiny little floaters. I want more as a result of this little guy.

One lone cardinal fish left among a population of reef fish, many over 10 years old. Figure that one.

I hate to hear that. I have zero experience with cardinals. Hopefully that was just a bad bunch, not a recurring problem. Do you plan on replacing?

Can't say I blame you there. They look nice but there are a lot of beautiful fish out there to choose from.
