Man Jessie. I am pulling for him. I lost a blue/green cromis today also. :-( It was the smallest of the three. He seemed to be doing fine and then I saw him stuck to the power head. Hope he pulls through but. Got my fingers, toes and eyse crossed for you and him.

Lost 2 before these guys came along. And u know my other loses... Just don't wanna see u go through the same thing, Jesse...
not really fish after fish, but i get what your saying. im putting the breaks on about lots of stuff, suppose i could press down harder.

fyi. it didnt take long for me to figure out how to gum stake. at least thats what my mom told me.

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

I know the awesome place I get my fish out get deliveries on Thursday and will hold the fish 2 weeks. If anything happens to it, they eat the lost. They have really earned my trust, but the book they use sucks. Lol.
