Naw... it's over the phone and they don't like to deal direct with the consumer very often... probably the real reason I didn't get it was that there was a high demand by stores and they get first dibs. Also it doesn't come to my door... I have to drive 45 min to the airport to get it.

I'm still tweaking my stocking list.

I was gonna get a golden midas blenny but I read that they actually bite and can pick on gobies?

https://www.liveaquaria.com/product/...3+83&pcatid=83

I'm trying to figure out what day to get my fish. I just added the 55g livestock over Thursday so I wanted to give it a few days, sound good?

I fixed the flow on my overflow by filling it up but now the water is overflowing the filter sock. Should I take out the filter sock and rinse it, it's got some goo on it but not too much.

Just trying to get this running nice and smooth.....LOL

You think so? I have 20 in my biocube and they do fine. I also feed the cube alot more though, so I guess that helps.

How many would you have gotten? I happen to like the snails alot, just not the other snails. lol I really like watching them come out during feeding time.

You have 20 in your cube! I have like 4 lol and I thought that was a lot.

I wouldn't worry about the midas blenny, I have never heard of anyones picking on gobys, mine sure doesn't. The next line also states that this behaviour is often witnessed only in smaller tanks, you will be fine with the 125.

i have 4 in my 26 also, nassarius snails can slow their metabolism if they aren't gettign enough food and can live for a few months because of it but still 20 is alot and probabl won't get enough food for them all to survive

Well I got 40 coming lol. That was the recommended amount in their cleaner pack too. I just don't like other snails. The 20 have been in my cube since I started it, trust me, the way I feed they are def not starving. I put half a cube of bloodworms in with the flow off and five minutes later it's all off the sandbed.
