Well I just got back from lunch....I'm lucky enough to be able to run home everyday from work to check on my tank. Well I got there and noticed my clown fish was missing....and after some looking lo and behold I found him....DEAD 8O . He was fine this morning when I left for work, swimming, eating, hanging out with the tang & damsel. No white spots on him, I checked the tank and everything is well within specs...Ammonia is less then 0.25...Nitrate is less then 0.3...pH 8.1...etc. I'd be more specific with the numbers but thats the lowest my kit will show for readings. I wonder if it was just his time to go...cause there were no marks on him as if he had been in a fight. FYI I have/had the following: Clown (deceased), Damsel, Tang, Firefish, Green Button Polyp, Acropora, 1 Pepperment shrimp, 1 Fire shrimp, 2 Emerald Crabs, 6 snails, Liverock. Yea I know its a little crowded for my 20 gal
but until I move in March its all I've got room for...come March though I get my 100 gal
Hopefully I won't have any other unfortionate deaths...but I look on the good side...now that the clown is gone the firefish is hanging out with the other fish....though the damsel is the one who normally picked on the poor firefish and no one picked on the clown....oh well....just had to releave my grief....thanks for listening everyone.
