Bad News

The royal gramma didnt make it. He was acting funny while I was floating him. Then he seemed ok in the tank and ate this morning and this afternoon he is dead. The Algae Blenny that I got with him from the same store is doing great. He comes out of the rockwork and eats from the rocks then goes back and hides. He is a bigger fish and more hardy than the gramma was. Tomorrow am going to another LFS that I like and get a new one. I have the two percula clowns and the algae blenny right now. The gramma will be the last. Hope I can get a healthy one. Levels are 0,0,10 and salinity is 1.025. The corpse looks perfect and doesnt have a mark on it. Just unhealthy I guess.

Got a new royal gramma and a cleaner shrimp from my favorite LFS. So now the stocking is 2 percula clowns, royal gramma, algae blenny and cleaner shrimp. I am getting credit from the store that sold me the original royal gramma. What should I get with the credit? In case you dont know its a 29 gallon.

Keep an eye on that gramma with that cleaner shrimp in there. If he catches it after a molt, he may decide to hit up the buffet.

That they do. I saw mine carrying around a cleaner like a dog with a treat. it was still alive too, he took it behind the rocks, end of the line for Mr.Clean.

I didn't know that myself. I've had my gramma in with cleaner shrimps for months now & they're all there.

Wow, maybe a gramma is off my list.. Is it rare for them to do that? Do they kill all inverts?

Mine started out the same way, all was fine for about 6 months. Then I guess he decided that he wanted some shrimp and since I hadn't fed mysis for the day, decided to help himself lol.
