Yep hes stayed in that spot for hours now lol. I kno he's eating because he ate a feeder and frozen shrimp at the LFS but wont eat now. Guess he just needs to adapt so I'll try feeding him tomorrow.

they dont eat as often as other fish, ive heard waiting 2-3 complete days will jumpstart their feeding.Their strike is crazy fast too.

good news well had an eventful day went to Petsmart and picked up 10 rosies for my lion, and 3 ghost shrimp for my 20g. Also will be heading out in the AM to pick up 8-10g tanks and hopefully (hopefully) a steel-framed custom 18g!!!. have a question about my LR in my 125 though. Ive noticed that there seems to have been an small outbreak of green hair algae growing over my rock, what (if any) choices do i have in terms of inverts that eat this stuff?? hopefully i can get an invert that wont get tore up by my triggers and lion.

Hopefully when you get your steel frame you will post some pics. I would like to see that. That just gave me a nasty idea for a welding project.

How is the tank doing besides the algae? Where did/ dose it come from?

idk if im gonna get it i def want it but its a 20 tall and he wants 50 bucks for it.. 30-35 bucks i could understand but 50 is a bit too steep for me.
the green hair algae is from too much light and nutrients i believe. hopefully a few days of reduced lighting will cut it back some. i might scrub a piece of it at a time.

yeah, seems that everyone's cast offs are worth their weight in gold when im looking to buy. still gave me the idea to weld something up... but thats down the road when im rich and i can afford the glass to mess up with.

thanks for the knowledge on the algae. ill try to scrub it off the rock we bought.
