OK as you all might know I had a perk that died not to long ago. He would not eat for some reason. I went to the store and found out what they fed him. I tried one type of food and he was dead the next morning, Im guessing from starving. I have had bad luck with a goby and another perc jumping from the tank months ago. Now I went out today and bought me a cool orange banded goby. He was the only one they had in the store and they told me he had been there for a couple weeks so they knew he was hardy.
I took him home. I acclimated him 1/2cup tank water every 20-25 minutes until I had double the amount of water I started with.
Since I had problems with fish jumping before I went out today and bought egg crate which is now on top of my glass.
Came home tonight and he has jumped out through the whole by the HOB
filter. WHY ARE THEY JUMPING????
As of this morning:
I am really getting bummed and so is my wallet! I want a **** saltwater tank but I cant take much of this much longer. I have had numerous FW
tanks and have had maybe 2-3 fish die ever!
Also I know I shoudl probally get a hood but the temps in my room stay pretty warm. I have a hard enough time keeping the tank cool with nothing on the top of the tank (besides the crate).
