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

you didn't acclimate them properly is all. i keep a galaxia under a 250 watt halide and it loves it. it's not too much light. especially if you like sps.

So here are the pictures. They are almost done acclimating. I got a two spot blenny and a yellow clown goby. The blenny seems kinda rare so I was hooked. I know about the twin spot gobies already but a blenny had me intrigued. They are beyond tiny but so cute. I don;t expect to get better pictures as they will get lost in the tank but here is what I got

I've heard it can both ways. Some get along alright some don't. I figured since theres so much rockwork they wont hardly ever come across one another. The yellow is a tiny but feisty little one. The green one I have already is pretty docile and shy. So it should work out. If need be I can always move one to the cube until I do another tank. LOL

I was so gonna order a yellow goby online yesterday, glad I waited, he was only $10 and this is from a super hi end lfs. I dont usually go there cause its so foo foo she she, but they posted that they had one and an anthias on facebook so I had to go in. Turns out they are redoing there whole shop and I will be going back. The guy actually showed me step by step how to set up an ato and a doser. I spent like 2 hours in there talking to him. Turns out he has his doctorate in marine biology. And he was a punk in the 80's like I was too. LOL We had some good conversations, had alot of fun and learned alot too.

Little yellow goby has found his spot and the blenny too. They ate at the store and just now too so I'm feeling good about them.

Now I just need a few more micro fish and I'll be set. lol

can't believe I found such cute cheap fish in such a high end store. $10 a piece. And I got a good lesson in ato's to boot. a productive day for sure.

Now I just gotta pick out some more nano fish to finish this tank off as far as fish. then it;s back to corals.
