Well up until tonight (more on that below) there was:
2 True Percula Clowns
Pink Spotted Watchman Goby
Male McCosker's Wrasse
But, I came home from work today to find my Watchman breathing slow and acting a bit lethargic. He's usually alert and perched on a rock somewhere or in the sand. It wasn't like him to just sit there. He was a little pale...but I couldn't see any obvious symptoms. Then he swam out in front and I could see his other side. He had a small fleshy sore on the side of his tail. After stepping away from the tank a sec...I saw the Tribal Blenny bite at his dorsal and tail fin. I ended up putting the goby in a hang on tank holder with an airstone (for water movement) while I made up some sw
(just did a water change yesterday so I didn't have sw
mixed)....and no qt. Anyways, to make a long story short, he only lasted a couple more hours until he passed.
I'm very sad...I loved that fish.
And to top it all off....I hadn't seen my Wrasse in a couple days....he hides alot because the Clowns harass him. I assumed him dead....couldn't see a body though. Then out of no where he appeared today and looked beat up really bad. I think he may have somehow gotten in the input of the skimmer (it isn't on) and got stuck or something. I really have no idea. He's currently in the hang on tank holder with the airstone and is awaiting the saltwater to get the correct SG
Tested the water for curiousity:
: 1.024 (usually 1.025, but I did a water change yesterday...thought I matched it correctly)
Did a water change yesterday and while the Wrasse was hiding....the Goby looked/acted fine.
Very sad day in the reef. My tank is a death trap. This time I believe it was the Blenny/Clowns contributing to the deaths. Didn't help that the Wrasse got stuck somewhere (if he really was...I really didn't see where he came from). If I add anything else, it will have to be able to stand up to my bullies.
It will be a bit before I add anything else....except maybe some coral frags.
