Well, I killed Nemo. I'm guessing my choice of healthy fish from the LFS
wasn't so good. Did a good sized (25%) PWC
, checked and rechecked chemistry, and got a pair of Ocellaris. Both fed right away, get along well, and seem quite content. I suspect the first ocellaris was ill to start. Found another store and noticed that their fish seemed a lot healthier. Chemistry is still really good. I think SG
may have been a bit high at 1.026 and now it's 1.024 with RO
as a base. Cleaner shrimp, cleanup crew, and anemones seem OK. Carpet anemone has already eaten twice. Bubble tip anemone found a niche where I set him and he's anchored in for the long haul. The carpet is presently on the move. I suspect he might want some more light. I'll just let them find their own places and once they're settled in, and if the water chemistry is near perfection, I'll look at tangs and corals.
