Just make sure they are rated for saltwater. I'm pretty sure there is a difference between salt and fresh water decorations. Not 100% sure on that though. Just remember hearing it somewhere.

Okay, so far I haven't seen my new Clownfish eat a thing. I have tried flake and frozen with no results! What should I do? Should I buy some garlic?


Thanks.

Thanks! It should just be at my LGS, right? (Local Grocery Store, LOL)

It's weird, I never expected a Clown to refuse food....

I've used the oil from minced when in a pinch. However, your lfs should sell some from Brightwell or Seachem. It's not that expensive.

Smile Great News!

I got the Pearl Eye Clarkii Clown to eat a little bit of Brine Shrimp last night, woot!


YAY

I plan to get the tank down to full hypo tomorrow or Saturday.


As always, thanks for following!

So I have the salinity dropped to 1.017-1.016. I plan to finish the drop tonight or tomorrow, I need to make some water first though.

Also, I accidentally left a heater lugged in in one of my garbage cans (for making water) when it was barely submerged at all. Will I run into any problems? It looked like the water has a small film on it, but I don't think that would be from the heater....


Thanks!

Thanks for looking!

A little update for this evening.

I got the salinity down even further, I am pretty close now. Unfortunately I used up all of my prepared water again so I can't finish up the treatment until tomorrow. Let me tell you, it takes an awful amount of FW to get a 125g to 1.009, LOL.


Thanks for reading!
