i think i have an answer on what to use to attach my rocks together. Its not going to be all of them, but airline tubing! itll flex a little if i need to bend them to get out of the tank is readily available and very cheap. now im stoked!

well i bought it... didnt even have enough sw made up to fill my qt becuase i did a pwc this afternoon.

but i think itll make acclimation go faster... match my parameters to the stores crappy water at half a tank then add ro water to get where it should be over the next several days. for whatever reason they have their salinity at 1.035 craziness, i had them pull out about 9 dead fish... but they started a 7 day return policy, and i have a qt to stop anything from getting to my dt so... i feel much better buying from them with their new policy.

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

yeah 3 of them were dead in tank though, so it was apparently a rough shipment. they had probably close to 150 of them though.

it was pretty nice of the fish to pose like that huh?
