Thanks guys, I think i will wait it out til saturday and then go digging for him. :-(

After my plague I have been qt'ing and to be honest, it isn't as hard as I thought it would be. I mean yeah, you can't have the fish in the DT for a couple weeks but it seems to go by so fast. lol Plus it gives you a chance to concentrate on the new fish, like seeing their personality and feeding preferences in a small tank without the over abundance of rock and other fish to contend with.

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

Exactly, that makes sense to view their eating patternts, and behaviors before they go in the DT. Never looked at it that way before. It is it nice to know if they have a disease that it won't be spread to your whole tank, and you won't have to treat your whole tank. I still don't know what size my QT will be, I will be getting some Tangs, so I don't want it too small.

I'd go with a 20L or a 29g if you can, especially if you will be looking to get larger fish. I love having the 55g as the qt, plenty of room for most anything. Once the 55g comes down though i will be using a 20R or a 29g. I'm not sure which one though, it's my B/F's parents old tank that I should go pick up this weekend if I can muster the energy. lol

Great, I will probably go with a 29g, since it is larger (It is the same length as the 20L, right?).

Great, I want the fish to have as much room as possible. I accidently typed in 229 at first, I guess my QT will be bigger than my DT .

LOL. I wish! I just found a beautiful 180g on CL, I know the owner too but I don't have anywhere to put it. :-( $500 bucks and it's predrilled on both sides and comes with a stand and huge refugium. He originally was asking 1000 for it a few months ago but I guess he needs the money...I'm just gonna have to be happy with the 125g LOL

Thats a nice price! Do you have a basement? You could put a tank there!

Yep I had to pass up a good deal on a 150long. Sweety pie wants her living room back. Now we are going back and forth on what to keep.

Maybe one day I'll have a big sw tank.

Coming in late here but wanted to say I am sorry to hear about that Carey. :-( As for the cucumber, I have heard that when they die they give off a really bad toxin that can wipe out the entire tank. Fish and corals.
