I was thinking bout getting the clown from petco until i realized they are all misbard ( not saying that bad bc i lk sum of the misbared shaped but wen ur paying 40$ for a clown i kinda want his stripes right) i think we are gunna order from liveaquara ( stupid this wont let me correct spelling) as we can order the blk n wht O clown as a juvi n watch it change from orange to black which is wat my son wants to see it grow n change. They have a blennie at my ifs thats 50% off bc every1 says hes ugly n wont buy it :-( so i will prolly get him love how he swifts threw the sand. Would a goby n a blennie get along or r they a no go together?

Wud it b over stocked if i we did say the 2 clowns 3 b cardinals a blennie n a goby (if theyd get along n if they sudnt go together maybe a firefish or a 6 line wisse) gunna do a lil more research.)

My son said hi (durring chemo we do our research together he likes all ur suggestions
Tell your son I said hi too!!
Yes, those cardinals are called bangaii cardinals. They're peaceful. I have 2 in my reef tank. They school, so they do better if you get at least 2. And tank-raised ones have better chances of survival in a tank.

Gobies and blennies get along fine. What kind of blenny is the ugly one that no one wants? My starry blenny has one of those faces that's so ugly, it's cute, ya know? And I love his antennae.
For a 28g, I wouldn't do more than 5-6 small fish. In my 30g FOWLR, I have a jawfish, a small oscellaris clown, small chalk bass, an orange striped cardinal, Firefish and a half black angel. A lot of people would probably say that I'm overstocked in there, but I do 20% PWC every week, so my levels are good. I'm planning on upgrading to a 125g in the next year.

Shouldnt mess up anything. Also i cant remember if youre running sand or gravel but if you have sand, dont bother with a gravel vac. Just lightly swirl the sand to clear off any debris. Also just a suggestion but id attempt to keep all rocks away from the glass/corners. Itll improve the flow in the tank and itll allow you to run a mag-float/ glass cleaner without hitting rock

I am the queen of "is your job description to be helpful or am I in the wrong place? I would be happy to yelp about my experience today, which I hope you enjoy reading with your boss tomorrow. I'm sure he can help you prepare for your next opportunity to make a sale, if you need some help learning how to perform without driving away customers."

I'm rarely this mad, but checking people who act cocky is a secret joy of mine, I love it! They just make the best faces while squirming and realizing the situation is going down. I'm going ream you, you can see it in my eyes, and I really love a big crowd when it happens.

My S/O is the opposite but ill jump right in and remind the rude person that I NOTICED THE ATTITUDE. I usually just drop "well thanks for your polite answer, why don't you try again so I can hear the professional response I was expecting?"
Bowing down to the queen of sass!

I wish I had the courage to do that too. But I'm just so antisocial that employees always make nervous.

The media has been in for a couple days n everything tested a ok. Yesterday on my way home I noticed a new fish store (oh no) so of course I gotta stop. They r not completely up yet but getting there. They have these almost red clowns I believe they were called vivid red. Any one know bout them. I guess they r pose be most colorful clowns.

Thats some form of polyp coral i believe . Not bad at all. Also vivid reds are just a tweak of the reg clowns if i remember correctly
