I only name some of my fish, its kinda a hit or miss thing, the fish has to have a name that means something to me or else I don't bother. Though I didn't name my b&w clowns and I loved them something awful. Nothing came to me with them lol.

I mean the names I have arent all that nice either.
We have ugly, the idiotic fish(two cichlids), spike, benga, big blue, blue 2, dopey goby, benny, candy and mandy. Hmm never realized we have names for alot of our fish hehe...maybe theres a pattern here.

I didn't realize most people didn't name their fish. Every one of mine has a name. Even the inverts have names in my tank. Maybe that comes with having a six year old.

Thanks so much!!
Are you getting cyano algae?? Like the red slime?



I've used this on a few of my tanks, it works like magic . Didn't harm any corals or inverts.

Yeah, I'm getting some red slime lately, I'm sure it's due to my overfeeding the tank. I've been doing twice weekly water changes and it's helped some. I'll have to give that stuff a try, I've heard nothing but good about it.

Thanks Kelsey!

Hey, i know I haven't been on in a really long time but I just wanted to tell you that this tank you are doing is a real inspiration to me. I love the ambitions of keeping a mandarin goby and just wanted to say keep with it.
