Ok so I don't have pics yet. I'm exhausted and still have a few things yet to do. Still have to get fish into qt. Been long day, but I know they are okay in the bag next to me. Had a water issue for the qt tank, almost taken care of now. Just playing it safe. Salinity was too low.
So I got 3 turbo snails and 4 margarita's I think LOL, I'm fried.
I got an Encrusting Horn Coral and a Colored Brain Favia.
I got a Red Sea Star.
1 Purple Firefish
1 Spotted Cardinal Fish
1 Kaudern's Cardinal
All were on my wishlist at one time or another. The Firefish never let it though.
When talking with the guy at Drs.F&S, he said I can only get one more goby and I have a general idea which ones not to get cause the Purple and the others will fight. Can't have 2 purples either for same reason, evenually they will fight. He said only 2 goby's of different uhm species for same reason. I can get one wrasse :-( but the anthias get along with pretty much everyone
. So I gotta dwindle down my wrasse (which I knew anyway cause I can't have that man fish).
The had the coral beauty, the flame angel, the midas blenny, this cool goby but I don't remember the name, wasn't on my list, various tangs, and he said the only tang I could get if any was the yellow.
They had the royal gramma, which was originally on my list too. Gosh today they just had so many. They had like 5 or 6 blue green chromis too, but I'll get the Blue later on.
So I'm officially a fishkeeper LOL. Been busy tonite. Gotta sleep and will get some pics on sometime tomorrow.
I need to chose between coral beauty and flame angel, I saw both today and I know they can't be together so I have to choose one. I do plan on getting the yellow tang later on.
The very last fish I get with be a pair of maroon clownfish (besides my mandarin in 8 months or so lol).
Course I still have a 55 gallon sitting empty in my bedroom so I can put coral beauty in one and flame in another I'm thinking, gotta research see if 55 is ok.
Gosh that Purple Firefish is just gorgeous and those turbo snails are HUGH!!!!!.
So anyone got anything to add to what I learned today bout the goby and stuff?
Also, I need empty shells in my tank. He mentioned I can put any shells in there for the snails to use. As all the shells came from the same place, just clean them up. (I still have a bunch from when I lived in Hawaii 30 years ago), he said I could use them. They have been in the same little old fishbowl for that whole 30 years and I just rinse the dust off every now and then lol. Any thoughts on that?
Whew all in all was a great day (though expensive again), flooding aside, and no light hung too.
