So I have a death this morning. :-( One of my peppermint shrimp passed, and no, its unfortunately not a molt. Her eggs are still visible and my cuc is eating it. That makes the count probably 2 dead in the cube if we count the candycane goby that hasn't been seen.

I'm kinda upset since I havent suffered any other deaths since i started other than a powerhead sucking up a small fish.

Very sad...I was gonna get 3 sexy shrimp this weekend I hope they fare ok. Gonna go test all my parameters to make sure.

hey scott, glad you're restocking. I bet you have more luck this time.

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

Hmm odd death, any way you could have a hitchhiker? I guess they probably would have devoured their kill themselves though if you did.

It's half base rock and half from my 55g pretty much so there weren't any hitchhikers. I always check out anything I put in my tanks like a thousand times, I am soo paranoid about bristle worms.

The shrimp was pretty much intact, had some snails munching it until I took it out. Kinda stinks since she had soo many eggs.

Sorry for your loss.

Yes, I have a feeling things will go better this time around too. I kind of know what I'm doing now!

I decided to sell off the other 29g sw setup so i had to find a home for the clown. I woulda returned her but she's kinda cool, just doesn't get along with other clown fish.

I was thinking on adding one more fish to the mix. Not sure what though. It would have to be small. I'd like a swimming fish though. the only fish that swims around is the clown LOL
I have a sunshine dottyback very colorful and active plus will eat bristle worms gets along great with my maroon clownfish and cuc can fit thru the smallest holes in rock work very fun to watch

I've looked at the dottybacks before, I'm aiming for a totally non aggressive tank. They are awesome looking though!

So far the evil female clown has been superb with the others. They all sit on top of each other its soo cute!
