I had no luch with Yellow tangs when I first started the tank. I bought a good size one from Aquatica that was there about a month. He is still doing well.
If you are into corals, let me know. I might be able to help you a bit. I love fish but corals are seem to all I buy any more
Yeah they wont even sell people fish unless they have been at the store for 3-4 days just to make sure they are ok. Jason has really helped me alot in answering my questions and helping me find the right fish to keep in the tank (if they would only stay now :p).
I was accimating the fish for 2-3 hours but someone said that was to long of a time. So i kicked it down to about 1.5 hours at about half a cup water put in the bag every 15-20 mins (I dont just dump the water in but slowely drain it in). I might go out and buy some air tubing and do the drip technique and see if that has any influence on the survival rate. Snails are reproducing everywhere, pods
are sufficient, corals are doing great, i just dont get what is going on.
Fish place told me the skunk would be the hardest to keep since they are picky about water conditions. I was happy to have them live through the first night and I figured after a week he was ok. They all ate everytime I fed including the skunk and never showed signs of stress (breathing hard). Both the skunk and firefish dies right next to each other.
ellisz I am very much into corals, in fact it is the only thing that hasnt died on me yet lol. I dont have many and my lighting isnt the best but I can keep some softies. Let me know what you got and I might be interested in some frags
in a couple weeks when I make sure the tank is settled and not going to kill anything else.
Anyways thanks again guys, im stressed out major with school right now and this kinda just bummed me out more.
here are the parameters I tested last night after I found them dead:
