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

Go with the glass one. If you have a good calibrated thermometer, like for humans, you can put both in a glass of warm water and calibrate your glass thermometer to something you trust.

Can't find any big number ones. Well at least bigger than what I've seen. Got any links or suggestions?

I can't think right now My salinity is too low (about 1.015) and I'm about out of salt, I don't have enough to bring it up. I was so hoping to have it all good to go so when I drove up to Drs Foster and Smith, I can go on my phone for the Diver's Den and have them walk over and get what I wanted (lol, beats ordering)

Do you remember everything I've mentioned: I have pictures on my pc of fish and stuff I like. I've been brain fried too much to figure out what goes first and how many. If I need a cuc first. I need food for whatever I get (I have nothing).


I still need a refractometer or a salinity whatever a point thingie or somthing. I figured if I had enough money, I'd start with one high tech measureing tool.

I'm GONNA GET A MANDARIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I don't have a sump, ref.ugium or skimmer or whatever else I need to start growing for them, so that they have a full smorgasbord when I do buy one.

When should I get a skimmer?
When should or should I even get a CUC?

I though I had an account on photo bucket somewhere, I'm going to try to log in or create a new account and upload the pics there, then I'll come back and post a link so you all have ideas of what I like, and if what I have selected isn't appropriate, maybe you can tell me why and maybe you can suggest something along the same lines.

I got that big rock moved this morning before work and I could have sworn I saw that tan thing starting to poke again. I got to get up in about 4 hours but am so mentally shot that I don't think I can sleep, so I think I'm gonna tink around with my rock.

Oh I tried posting from my phone today but didn't go through. I would like input on these items please: (They are all Drs. and Smith, since I'm planning to go up there when they open at 9), If anyone is in the area and want to tag along, give me a yell, I promise I won't run over any curbs, but I will promise that I will smoke in my vehicle, stop for coffee and go pee.

I will be leaving my house about 8am Friday morning if you are interested pm me and we will make arrangements, I work 6a-6p tomorrow and thursday so If I can access my pm's from my phone when on smoke break I will. Other wise I will check when I get home from work.
