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

Hehe, just figured I would let you know since I know that you are keeping your eyes peeled for one.

Oh, I appreciate you giving me the heads up. I found on a local reef forum about $400 worth of stuff so i can't buy any fish or coral for awhile if I do get. It's a diablo skimmer, two dosing pumps, a sump that will fit under my 60g tank and a reefkeeper lite. I am SOO excited! I hope he gets back to me quick. lol

The only bummer is if I buy all that stuff I won't be taking home the 60g setup this month. :-(

It seems all I ever do is report bad news on this thread lately.

I found my male clown fish behind the tank a few minutes ago. :-( That was the second time he did it, the first time I managed to save him. So this makes like 4 fish that have jumped out of the 125g and died. A couple times I managed to save a jumper but this time i was taking a nap.

I plan on ordering the clear netting from BRS this week and putting some up on the 125g and the 90g. Hopefully this jumping to their death thing can end.

I am thinking of adding the b&w clowns to the tank now. They never jump in the cube and are a bit bigger than the orange oscellaris's I've had jump. Or should i wait for the netting to arrive? Not sure what to do....

It also would be nice to free up some space in the biocube since with the clowns in there it's a bit overstocked. BUT id I do there won't be any swimmy fish left. LOL All the others in the cube are just perchers or flutter like mandy and scooter.

I'd say wait until you get your netting before adding the clowns

Sorry about the clowns. I have never had a jumper (unless you count my hawkfish that jumped into the overflow). I would wait on adding the clowns to the 125 until you get your netting. I'm sure you move a swimmy fish from the 20 or 125 into the Biocube

Sorry about your loss carey.

I also think that you should wait to add the B&Ws to the 125g (if you decide to do so) after the netting comes in. Just to be on the safe side.

Guess I must be bored cause now I'm thinking of stuff to do. LOL

I was thinking of changing out the return pump I have now and putting in the MAg18 I got for the future upgrade of this tank. I am using a rio HF 1532gph pump now so the mag shouldnt be that much of a jump. The only thing is i would have to redo the return plumbing since the Rio is a 1 inch return I ran everything with one inch pipe and hose. lol The overflow can handle 1200 so I should be good I think anyway.

Not sure when this tank is gonna get it's upgrade, but it's not going to be super soon so I figure why not use the Mag now, I can always keep the rio as a backup.

What do you guys think? Should I redo the return line or just leave it be?

Thanks everyone for following, I really appreciate it! I know it hasnt been real exciting as of late but I'm still plugging away!
