You may be stressing your fish and tank let things settle Go slow with the changes the water from the LFS May not be all that great sometimes they get to busy to check filters so there RO/DI may be in need

Had to put a kitty down this afternoon. Got home and found one of my peppermint shrimp dead. No reason I can see.

Sorry to hear about kitty that's a real bummer

What are you testing your water for? A tip get a weekly pill holder the ones that hold a weeks worth of pill put just enough dry food to feed each day this way you can control how much others feed when you have to be away

Thanks for the condolences. That's a good idea about the pill holder. We will be away on a cruise for 9 days in November. I'll do a better job of acclimating my daughter this time. I just gave the tank a dose of Cyclop-eeze, the first in a week. Flakes or shrimp pellets once a day. See, I'm listening.

another crazy question

i bought a frag of a torch several weeks ago. it is on a frag plug that has a post on it about 1 1/2 inches long. i figured i was supposed to keep it on the plug so i glued the post to a piece of rock. as of today, i have had to move it or reglue it down 4 times because something keeps knocking it over. was i supposed to cut off the post or take it off the plug all together? so far i have been lucky that i haven't damaged it.

No you should keep it on the plug. Using Epoxy putty is the best way to get them to stay where you want.
Something along the lines of this:

I bought a Koralia 550 to go with my 240. Has drastically dropped the cyano in the tank. Since I lost my flasher wrasse, and my kitty, I had to cheer up. I brought home a purple fire fish and a small brittle star. The star is beautiful, not your run of the mill black or dark brown. He has a two-toned brown/ivory disk with striped legs. He's about 6 inches across. The fire fish is, of course, beautiful, too. I fed the tank frozen Mysis tonight and the star came out to eat. I watched the fire fish in his cave and he ate, too. Hopefully soon, he'll come out to play.

I know, I know. But we will have to wait for the fire fish to come out so you can see him. I just saw the star in the fire fish's cave. he won't hurt him, will he?
