That is a bummer Carey...be patient though. You will get the fish meant for your tank! I feel the same way...we are waiting on some live rock from a friend of my boyfriend's and he 'keeps forgetting'! I am sick of looking at a bare tank!

I'm so jealous, Carey! I love dragonets! Is it at all possible to buy him a constant supply of pods? Or it is too expensive? I mean they would still live and reproduce in live rock... Just wondering

I'm always hesitant to buy live fish from Petco and such. I've seen such horrors there that it made me want to cry.

I would go broke buying him pods! lol I paid $15 for a bottle and $10 for two bags. i have a pretty good population already in the cube from the LR I moved from the big tank. I fully expect him to go through it shortly though. that's why I made a 10g pod tank, I'm growing extras in case I need them.

The poor little fish I wanted to buy from petco was soo cute and didn't look bad like the beta's did. If my order doesn't come in tomorrow I may consider petco for the goby. Maybe.

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

Awe this is too bad! hope they are there tomorrow. I found out my LFS isn't getting anymore live rock until may 12th, I think I'll go rock shopping in our large tank again haha. Got a few corals today though and my light came in uploading pics now.

I just discovered Nutramar Ova frozen food (prawn eggs). The package says its good for "picky eaters" such as mandarins and pipefish. My fish go crazy for it.... So it made me think of your little scooter. Might be worth a shot.

I've never heard of that food before nor have I seen prawn eggs. I'll have to inquire on my next shopping trip.

Supposedly today is the goby day. I'm not getting my hopes up cause i was crushed yesterday. :-(

On a good note, scooter is still doing fine and I haven't even added more pods. Still working with him on the frozen though. maybe him seeing the gobies eat will register with him. lol here's hoping anyways...

Would a scooter and a lawnmower get along does anyone think?

Thanks guys for following! Love you all! :-X

As my Spanish teacher once said, 'Don't get your hopes up, then you'll be pleasantly surprised.'. I kid you not, he really said that to a bunch of kids!!
