If you did a water change recently that could account for the levels going back up.

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

I would just make sure anything you ordered from them isnt on their "expert" list as they only guarantee it for 2 hours from signing for it. Kinda hsady if you ask me....But def check it, it should be on the homepage. It's not hidden but it;s not the easiest thing to find either.

if it makes you feel any better all three fish and crabs I ordered all were fine and dandy. The corals and the inverts are another story.

Yeah, no expert tag on either. Engineer was only 4.99! Couldn't beat it. (or find it). Going to petco tomorrow to get qt tank. So heater and water for that... How long do I leave them in it?

Thats' entirely up to you and your comfort level. I left mine in for 2.5 weeks and felt that was sufficient. if anything looks funny or not right the time clock resets once they get to normal. Some people qt for 4-6 weeks, in my opinion thats a long time and I dont think I can be that patient. lol

I was looking to get like 3 of those engineer gobies but realized before ordering that they get to like 6 inches each I believe.
