Well it's a sad day. It looks like my new clown got stuck in some rocks and died. He was out and happy yesterday and saw him stuck dead today. Poor little guy, I liked him.

Oh man I'm very sorry to hear that, that chocolate was so cool looking. I'd be rich if I added the cost of fish over all the years.

So it wasn't a total loss. My LFS gave me 50% back in store credit. I am still bummed about loosing the little guy but its not as bad now. Gotta love a good LFS that recognizes you as a loyal customer.

So I have heard that trumpets are fast growers but mine did nothing for 3 months. I think it may be splitting now but I'm not sure. It looks like it is forming the shape of 2 heads with the 1 head closest to the camera. The only reason I'm not sure is when my hammer splits its mouth splits but I don't think the mouth on my trumpet split. Is this normal splitting for a trumpet or should its mouth split like on my hammer?

Sorry for the sub par pic. My iPhone struggles with the vibrant color on this coral.

I don't have candy canes now, but that's what mine looked like. Also mine grew slow also, maybe my tank at the time was lacking trace elements, not sure.

Yeah, I don't dose or test for any of those because it seems that in a smaller tank it is Cheaper and easier to just do regular water changes to keep them up. I am just relying on my salt to have what I need. I am hoping it splits though. I want it to get big because it adds great color to my tank.

So it looks like it is splitting which is funny since I was complaining about it not growing last week. I also noticed a new head budding on my duncan. I'm pretty excited for both.

I purchased a black clown today, I am currently acclimating her. I'm not sure why my last one didn't make it but I am hoping I have better luck with this one. She ( i say she since it is bigger than my orange and am hoping it becomes a she) is looking really healthy and is eating.

Any advice to help the process? Also how long should I drip acclimate? I usually do an hour to an hour and a half, is that long enough?

Unless an easily stressed fish I don't drip and float acclimate for more than 30 min.
