Yes it should be live, you could also have different sal readings if your salt wasnt mixed with a powerhead a day in advance, and you didnt have enough flow in your tank (would be a bad combo of issues for your underwater friends)

Great idea! I did that with all my tanks but the first one. So much cheaper and the rock looks so much better usually. lol

Hmmm. I still can't find the one candycane goby. :-( The one is right in the corner, has been in the same place all day but I haven't even spotted the other one.

I figure I'll move the rocks tomorrow and try to find out his fate. I really hope I'm just missing him cause last thing I wanna do is try to get the fish guarantee honored, in fact, if he's dead and eaten would they honor it? i wouldn't think so...

I hope he's okay. I've had a really sad day, but won't go into because I don't want to hijack the thread.
