I agree it's not good but it's always good to be light-hearted afterwards, knowing that everythings fixed.

This bad info is probably coming from random sites that are full of BS. Just this night I read on two different sites:

T.crocea is probably the most difficult clam is keep alive in captivity

T.crocea is an excellent choice for beginners as it is hardy and can survive fluctuations.

BTW which one is correct?

To tell you the truth I don't know. It all depends on if you got the correct amount of light ( lots and lots) and you don't have fish that would constantly pick on it.

Holly cow, I swear to god this is way too much pressure and I feel like its hard to trust anyone. The guy at the fish store told me this and I am thinking he wasn't listening to my question. I am going there tomorrow and Plan to talk to the owner.

I swear I am an educated person but this is a very consufing process.

You folks on this site really do care and I feel comfortable w/the advice I am getting here.

I should be sweet then. 6xT5HO's and nothing that's gonna pick at it. To the contrary, the Sixline will eat some of it's little predators.

That's why were here. Yeah SW is confusing when you start but it gets easier. Basically:

Topping up the tank after evaporation: Freshwater.

Water Change: Saltwater.

sorry i have to comment here. i was watchign a you tube video of this guys tank. and the tang was swimming back and forth from one end to the other and the 2 clowns were follong behind one way, then when the tang stopped the clowns would stop. then when the tang turned around the clowns would sprint to the other side and wait for the tang and follow it again. was so funny.
