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

Well got some very unfortunate news skeeter, our scooter blenny has passed away...... I was doing some tinkering with the skimmer and noticed him layin belly up had to scoop him out with the net and flush him. My girl cried for 20 minutes after I told her....I'm genuinely upset, he was doing soo good and was so active in the tank...he even displayed a lot. Not to try and replace him, but we are gonna keep an eye out at our lfs over the next few weeksto see if we can't find a different blenny that's more suitable for our tank. So disappointed right now, feel like a failure

Wow, sorry to hear that. I saw a scooter blenny at the LFS and it was so cute I wanted to grab it. But before I did I did a little research and asked carey and she said they were pretty difficult to keep. So I strayed from it.

Sorry to hear the news huma, he was a darling little thing.

Yes, they are difficult to keep as you can see. I'm sure you can find a suitable fish to put in it's place. How about a midas blenny? Beautiful fish, I'm on the look out for one myself.
I felt the same way when I lost my fish, like I failed them somehow.

Just don't replace it with a mandarin

yeah i talked to my gf about it and we are gonna keep it in the back of our minds when we go fishy shopping for the next few weeks...IF we get another blenny, im going to make sure he/she eats prepared food before we buy.. as of right now, we are going to continue our stock list. im torn up about losing him, he was a smaller fish and not really a "centerpiece" but he was one of our favorite lil guys. and no mandarin for us

well theres always the future, a 125 will be big enough to produce pods for a mandarin in time if you're willing to wait.

I've never really put much thought or time into the mandarins, imma go check them out though, if I like perhaps in a few months ill purchase one. Did my testing tonight. Results as follows
ammo-0
Trites-0
Trates-15
alk-300
Ph- 8
Sg-1.0245
Temp-80
Wasn't quite expecting trates to jump like that.....but its been 3 days since the pwc and looks like ill be doing one tomorrow morning. I think I can attribute the trate jumps to me adding all the fish in within a 48hr period.... I know I'm supposed to gradualy introduce them but life in their 5g transfer bucket wasn't doing too well ...just gonna do a pwc tomrrow and ride it out, things are smoothing out slowly but surely

Dude, just buy a few Copepods and introduce them into your tank so you can get your mandarin! That's what I'm doing because they are beautiful.
