He's not eating them, just snapping them in half and leaving the carcass for me to clean up. I think everything in my tank is at best, way overfed. lol

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

Carey, i know your tanks are overfed, but for most thats the problem. Maybe your pistol is thinking of a future snack and kills when it has the opportunity so it doesnt lose out?
On another thought doesnt the goby send out the pistol when scared? So maybe your goby is a scaredy fish! LOL

I know it doesnt sound fun but redoing some rockwork to try and get the cleaning station further from the murderer. I know even moving things isnt a guarantee theyll switch their spot...but i think it would be worth a try

My goby and shrimp haven't met up yet, and if they did they don't get along. lol My goby is a big wuss, he sometimes tries to fight with the blenny but he's all open mouth and no bite. hehe

I think I'm gonna move the cleaner into the cube, maybe he'll like it in the special needs tank. lol I just have to raise the salinity in that tank then I think

After my normal wednesday fish shopping day I came home with some stuff. I couldn't stock any fish for this tank of course, and they had some awesome blue tangs that were blue already BUT I did get a purple feather duster, my first and a flowerpot coral.

Pictures once they are in tank and open.

Woot woot!

Tomorrow or Friday I get to go visit the fish I ordered and check them out. can't wait!
