Been productive the last few days.

Got the last few fish from the makeshift 10g tank into the 60g. yay!

The barnacle blenny promptly kicked out the yellow watchman from his rock and took it over. lol The neon goby is loving all the swim room, he looks much happier. I have not seen the green clown goby though since we moved him over. Not sure if he is hiding or if I lost him. Hope not, he was in the pico and I really like him.
Got the vortech going, and it must just be me, but i really dont think its such a stupendous product. I do like the streamline-ness of it and it pushes water well but it's just a powerhead in my mind, not that much better than the koralias I have.
was it worth the extra money for the coolness factor and how nice it looks on the tank? Jury is still out for me but I;m not horribly disappointed or anything, just expected more i guess. LOL

I also moved the clown fish I was fish sitting for from the biocube to the 90g. he also seems much happier in there. And if my girlfriend wants him back one day I guess we'll be fishing for him in the 90g. LOL

hmmm....anything else.....ah, yes, the bacterial bloom is gone if I havent mentioned it, was really annoying too but now the water is back to crystal clear. Oh, and my check valve failed this morning and the sump got filled almost to the top. Glad I had a good balance of available space in the sump and my output hose was placed ok to avoid a flood.

Thats it for updates for this tank. lol

Thanks everyone.

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

I put one in my nano a few months back and really noticed a difference! I noticed it's not so much about the flow, but rather the undertow it creates! It keeps everything suspended in the water column to be moved out through the overflow. I haven't really needed to blast off my rock with a turkey baster in quite awhile, although I do anyway. Give it a couple of weeks and play around with the different modes, I think you'll fall in love with it.

Yay, I love updates! LOL

The Green Clown Goby is probably just hiding, he is pretty small.

The green clown goby finally made an appearance last night! So glad!

I have re thought my plan of micro fish also, the tank is just too big to have them, they will get lost in there. lol I may add a couple tiny guys but so far the only thing I have on my list is a couple chromis and maybe a chalk bass.

I haven't seen my clown goby in over a week. I think he bit the dust. He was a shy eater he might have starved to death. No trace of him yet though so I still have a little hope.

But regarding your night appearance, my yellow one always seemed to come out at night!

Just as there was good news there is also some bad news. :-( My boyfriend found the yellow watchman on the couch, long past saving......

he managed to get to the top of the tank, which he didnt do an clear it and make it a few feet to land on the couch. Not sure how these fish keep doing this but it's really getting to be a bummer. :-(

This is the one tank I DID NOT want to put a cover or screen on so I guess I will just have to pick my fish more carefully.

Sorry for your fish loss Carey!!! I had the same problem with gobies and blennys!!! I dont know why they were spooked when someone approached the glass to see them and i even witness when my lawnmower blenny jumped once but the others did suicide jumps when i was not looking either!! Even a black percula so big and beautiful and playful made a suicide jump on my rimless!!! Those are sad moments!! I still have them with my rainbows and rasboras but thats the price i pay for loving the rimless or no cover tanks!!!
