My thoughts on tomatoes: I had them once on pizza. It was the best pizza I have ever tasted in my life. It had fresh mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes!

My thoughts on the stocklist: I wouldn't wait much longer to get the Chromis. You can always get the Benny later, right? Or did you want to get them at the same time so you could QT them together?

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

if you ever worked with fiberglass insulation and got some in your skin, you'll know exactly what it feels like to make contact with a bristle worm. it's really no big deal.

Really ? I've heard some horror stories of getting stung... I'm a very squeamish kinda chick and super scared of icky things. I can't even garden because the worms in the dirt bug me out. lol

On the same kinda topic, I bought a fangtooth blenny the other day and have found out it can bite and is venomous. :-( Would a bite be that painful do ya think? I'm paranoid now to do a water change and re scape.

Really? The striped Blenny in the rimless in venomous? Good thing you found out. I think the pet store should have said something.

I figure he didn't know. Another day I didn't have my reference book to check either. But he's an awesome fish, swims around the tank all day

That's fantastic! I love active fish. They add so much life to the tank! He has nice colors too!

i've been poked by bristle worms hundreds of times. i put a drop of crazy glue gel,on the spines that are in my finger, then pull it off, and out come the bristles, just like fiberglass, and that's about it. unless you are overly sensitive. some folks touch corals and get rashes and such.

The only problem I'm having is he hasn't eaten yet that I can see. I've never had a fish not eat the same day as being introduced to the tank. I've tried several foods too and nothing yet.

Hmmmm, do you have any pods in there? According to LA it says they eat small crustaceans in the rock, so I assume that is pods. Maybe you could add some until he is ready to start eating prepared foods.
