You could have a smooth transition too with no spikes. I'd make sure over a couple days before you move your stuff over. Took about a day or 2 for my spike.

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

I am officially DONE with cleaner shrimp. Just lost my 4th one sometime last night. I have 1 left. I think it's the pistol shrimp getting them. I can't possible get the pistol out without a tank breakdown so I guess I'm stuck with him.

The cleaners were really cool to watch too, my goby and tang used to go to them all the time.

Too bad these shrimp cost like $24 each.! ANother $100 bucks pissed away.

Would a coral banded shrimp be man enough to stand up to a pistol shrimp? I really want alot of shrimp but am finding it hard to accomplish.

Looks like your cleaner shrimp are gettin pistol whipped.... sorry I had to,
Imo Carey I'd just get the pistol shrimp outta there, I know it'll take a partial breakdown, but better now while there's minimal livestock. I don't think sacrificing a cleaner shrimp crew for a single pistol is worth it, but that's my opinion. Imagine if you fully re-stock and then decide you wanna take the pistol out....

Yeah, I know....lol. Theres just sooo much rock and corals that I hate to even think of digging it all out.

If I have another outbreak of whatever killed my fish I will be breaking down the tank to get the fish out so I'll consider it at that time. He has made his home in the exact center on the bottom rocks.

Just don't believe this one pistol is causing me so much grief. he doesn't even come out, I saw him for a second about a week ago.

I lost two cleaners as well kinda dawned on me over the weekend that I hadn't seen them... I think the aggressive fire shrimp at a descent size would hold off the pistol.. with that 125 id say u could pick up 2

I keep finding the dead bodies. They are broken in half so I'm guessing the pistol is doing that. Nothing else in the tank would or could do that to the shrimp. I think I'm down to 1 peppermint as well, I can't find the other 3.

maybe shrimp just aren't for me lol
