I like photoshop. I put it in my signature so I dont have to worry about quota. Some day I'll upgrade so it won't matter.

Well I am glad someone is smiling LMAO.

@Carey, yep I have photobucket but I keep forgetting LOL. Must be that old age crap going on again.

Thanks about the Fire Fish. I love that little guy. He has been the number 1 fish on my list to get ever since I started, and he was THE FIRST one bought also.

I've read that bugger is supposed to be shy and timid..NOTTTTTTT, he and I still have staring contests. (He blinks first though hehehe). The shell in the back of the tank is where he hitched his ride this time. I didn't freak out when I was done emptying the container and he wasn't there in the bottom this time. Few minutes and there he was, creeping out the shell LMAO. Then swimming like crazy.

Last night while I was putting the frags in the tank, do you think he hid???? NOPE I could have sworn if I had food in my hand he would have taken it out of my hand.

Coco Worm doesn't hide when I come up to the glass as much anymore either, he stays out and struts his left overs LOL.

Oh yes we call him The Streak....Fastest thing on two uhmmmmm 1 shellLMAO

Lot of cutting and drilling and appointments. Been pretty busy. Getting ready to put the sand back in the 75 in the next day or so

Elegance Coral Demise

I am sorry to report that my Elegance Coral is dying. There appears to be nothing that can be done to save it. After alot of research it appears to have ECS. My only question now is if I should remove it from the tank or let nature run its course? After some research, it appears this was inevitable.

Sorry to hear that. Alot of elegance corals dont make it in the long run. It seems the australian ones are a bit hardier.

That is sad...I lost a few years ago before the information was broadly known about them. You are very persistent, so you will get to a place where this all is simpler. But do try to only have organisms at this early stage that give you the best possible outcome. It is easy to follow your eye and heart when wanting something to keep in your system...but this often comes with a high price..the frustration of not being able to keep your investment alive and happy. The "learner" fish and corals all have their interesting looks and characteristics and come with the huge bonus of building your confidence. Just IMO...keep up the good work.

Hinesight LOL. I didn't research enough before getting it. I was hoping that after I realized which one I had that it wouldn't happen. But it is. Yet it's not only costly when you lose something due to the high cost of this hobby, but it's the fact that it's a life gone and that maybe that life wouldn't have died if I hadn't have brought it into my aquarium. So now, that's the icky worms in the beginning, a turbo snail, an emerald crab, an orange polyps, a fire shrimp, a peppermint shrimp, a cardinal, a red star fish, an encrusted horn - though he's back not as bright as he was, a coco worm injured, all leads me to think I'm in the wrong hobby. :-( Life still goes on and sucks at the same time.
