Just got home with my babies! They are so tiny! Got them acclimating right now. The only picture I could get is a bit fuzzy but they are quick and small. LOL

Cant wait to put them in the big tank! I hope they like it in there, I've been trying so hard to make it perfect for them.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Got them both in safely and they seem ok. Thye went straight to the intake on my hob filter and are swimming in the flow. They've been doing this for the last twenty minutes. Such silly little fish. The blenny is just on a rock staring at them. LOL

Oh wow, they look GREAT! Are they eating?
My general rule is: if it's eating then it's doing great lol

They ate about 2 hours after going into the tank! Like they were starving in fact. Little buggers... Now I find myself hovering over them to make sure they dont get hurt somehow.

How long do you think I can leave the skimmer and power heads off for? Everything is running but I'm afraid they will get caught in the grates of my HOB Remoras skimmer box.
What do ya think folks?

I've got a lawnmower blenny and hopefully will finish off with a goby.

Came on here just to check if you got them haha they look great! You could put a sponge on any intakes you have just to be sure they don't get sucked up. I usually get a square one and cute a small hole in it to put the tube in...or a long one and just wrap it around the intake with an elastic. Just make sure they are quite porous so it doesn't slow the water flow too much.

Thanks so much!

I jimmy rigged a filter sponge to block the skimmer baffle so I think I can sleep tonight.

Feel like a new mom with a newborn first day outta the hospital

Hi kelsey!

They are doing so great! They are eating like little pigs lol. I'm still always hovering over them cause they are still so small but I love them to death. I am so glad I waited for these guys.

Hear that everyone, waiting it out is worth every day of waiting!

I'm still really excited, can you tell? lol
