Arent the black & white butterflys hard to keep? I would LOVE another butterfly, the one I have is so great. Very active and social.
I added stuff today!!!!
Got my red knobby starfish from reefs2go and a purple urchin. I temp accliamted them for 30 min then took an hour and a half to water acclimate.
Th urchin was easy, just used a small net and scooped him in.
WELL, the starfish is a problem. :-( I ended up almost double filling the bucket with my tank water so I drained all the water that I could out and left just enough for the starfish to be submerged since I know its a BIG no no to let him get exposed to air. I then dumped the small bucket into my tank and the starfish slid out, but where oh where did he land? Yep, he landed on the one coral I havent moved out of the 90g yet. Right dead center on my candycane. I've tried to nudge him off but he is really really stuck on there.
I hope he just leaves the coral so I can take it out but if doesnt then I just killed my candycanes. See what happens when you don't think things through all the way? I don't believe I did such a dumb thing.
Anyone with ideas how to get him off the coral? I sure would appreciate it!
Here are 2 pics, one of the new urchin (who is VERY cool to watch, who knew? lol) and one of the flame hawk. He is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I think I'm gonna name him sumo, to me he looks like a japanese sump wrestler. LOL Look at his eyebrows, he so looks like one!
