I hope the goby doesnt change my sandscape too too much, I ahve been warned about them. i also hope he gets along with the pink spotted watchman that i have who doesnt sift a single grain of sand ever. LOL



Cool pictures. I was wondering, what do you feed your blue tang and how often? Thanks.

The dirty glass is the stupoid coralline algae spreading everywhere. lol Just havent bothered to scrape it off this tank, dont wanna stress the tang out if at possible. Plus I;m sellingit so I figured I;d give it the cleaning of its life before sale.

I love gobies, they had just sold a yellow clown goby, the last one, I wish I could have added him too. lol

I;ve been feeding the tang pellets, mysis, emerald entree and crushed up seaweed which he doesnt seem to want to eat. He also like flake food too. All NLS food but the frozen.

Isn't sand sifting supposed to be a good thing with a dsb? Not like it's a tank rearranging cichlid is it? I guess we will know by tomorrow if all your sand ends up on one side of your tank.

I also take it if you can leave your house for fish you guys down there are still doing ok and the storm hasn't blown anyone away. Be safe.

We got about a half hour of pouring rain so far but now its bright and clear. Looks like it may have missed us, thank goodness.....Gives me more time to price generators would have hated to run out today and have to get one..

I also have a pistol shrimp that makes a total mess of my sandbed each day so I;m kinda used to it. At least this fish I can watch him do it, the pistol just does it overnight and I havent seen him since hew went into the tank.
lol

Major sand sifting on a dsb isnt good. Dsbs use anerobic processes to convert nitrates to nitrogen. If a major sand sifter mixes up the sand, it aerates the sand, therefore stopping any anerobic prpcesses

I'm hoping this new sifter isnt one of those crazy sifters i've read about. i also have 40 narsicsuss snails in the tank too so they are sifting as well. I've been running 0-5 nitrates with no ammonia or trites so I think it's working out ok.
