I just couldn't be patient and got a fish at lfs
that is not the best... but the only one around for at least an hour. I got a blue/green chromis for my 12g nano. He seemed to acclimate ok but the second day I could not find him. I waited a while and got worried. So I searched and found him in the last place I would want to find him... my circulation pump
good think I started with a $6 fish!
So I got him out and added a very porous sponge to the intake so that the next fish will not be so unfortunate. I did a water change and just checked my parameters:
Nitrite had no color so I assume its 0
Nitrates around 20
Alkalinity 2.75 mEq/L
The problem is that I am traveling to a great lfs
store (at my home, I am in college, and dont go home too much) and was planning on upgrading my cleaner crew, getting a couple pieces of coral (like a kenya tree, ricordea, shrooms
, brain, xenia, etc), and possibly another fish. But now after this one died, do I need to wait longer than 3-4 days to add new livestock? I currently have zoas, feather dusters, and some snails.
