so my weird bug thing is def a chiton which is good the tentacle thing could be a spionid, which is apparently rare in tanks but common in the sea-where it happens to be collected from... it also happens to be a filter feeder that only comes out at night, which is the only time i've seen it.

OK so test results this morning ph-8.1, ammonia-0, nitrite- 0.5 to 1.0, and ntirate 20ppm. So very excited hopefully i can qt some fish this weekend!

My nitrites were not coming down so two days ago I added a cup of tap water that i added some tetra aquasafe to. I read an article about niterbacter and how it utilizes phosphate to reproduce. the cup of water brought my phosphate from >.25 to 2ppm, but i think it helped the bacteria colonize.. as well as added some algae to my tank, but I think from here on out ill use my rodi water and the algae will die out.

ok so we didnt get a green fish...

Aidan pointed at a mated pair of clowns, then the wife saw them and we had to get them. The problem then was that they were hosting an anemone, and apparently there was still no saying no so... well I hope it lives! also the guy at the lfs hit one of the fish with the net and it didnt even make it out of the store, they were like we dont take fish back for any reason... so wont be going back there.

WAIT WHAT? One of the clownfish you bought died before you even left the store?

I would've gotten a refund, no matter what the person said. Was he a manager or the owner of the store?
