just get a tank and take off the trim then you can fit any welded steel trim on
very sad and aggravating news today.. stopped at our lfs to check out the new order that came in. after some researching and about 10 minutes of conversation with the manager, ended up picking up a rainbow wrasse, was about 3inches long and amazingly beautiful. took home and acclimated, released into our tank, our picasso trigger chased him 2 pr 3 times then gave up, well just came home from work to the wrasse half eaten stuck under a rock .im so heart broken and mad. had to remind myself numerous times that sometimes thats exactly the triggers behavior, just to attack a fish until it dies.

shoulda known it was gonna happen, just a very hard learned lesson in that i simpy cant put a non-aggressive fish in my tank the honest problem is that when the trigger nips at another fish, if the other fish just ignores them or nips back, the triggers stop, but as soon as the fish darts to get away, my triggers attack

Yea their just like piranhas. They nip to see if they can get an aggressive reaction and if not they go in for the kill.

im sorry, we have a blue-spotted puffer, not a stars and stripes puffer, i will work on better pics the next day or so but the tang is gonna be tough to catch lol.


and our orange-tipped tang


alot of things have taken place today in terms of the tank, this morning i woke up and decided to switch the background to blue (good choice) and also got sick and tired of the calcium deposits on the overflows, so i spent an hour and a half scrubbing one overflow..looks 100x better. the other overflow box is up for cleaning tomorrow. also, in a very brief stroke of genius, came up with my sump layout...ill post a better drawing of it one day soon. and as a result of my dominos aggravating the new members, i netted them and they will be going to my lfs tomorrow, just too aggressive and bullish ( plus it opens a spot for one last fish) finally tamed my picasso trigger to the point where i can be in the tank for extended periods without worrying about getting bit.... i thought this tank was awesome before, these 2 new additions look like they are glowing in my tank! so happy
