Another stocking question:

What are your guys' thoughts on Dottybacks? I had a Diadem before, but he, too, was murdered by my Triggerfish.

I was looking at the Orchids as I have heard that they aren't as agressive as some of their counterparts, but I do like some of the others also.

So what do you all think? Will a Dottyback be an issue with the Anthias and few other smaller fish (like the Firefish), and my current stock?

I have an indigo dottyback. No issues, but been here under a week. Check the compatibility chart on liveaquaria. There are quite a few who aren't friends.

Thanks! I was actually looking at the Indigo and decided that I liked that one better than the Orchid.

I think it is pretty cool that it is a hybrid of the Orchid and the Striped, they are fairly pricey though.

Hi everyone, I am posting with not so good news today. Unfortunately, I found out yesterday that my Linespot Flashed Wrasse died. I think it might have been due to stress from the McCosker's Wrasse I have in there, not sure though.

Smile BRS Group Buy

Now here is a happy post!

I forgot to mention that on Sunday night I ordered two sheets of netting (for 125g and 55g), and a Two Little Fishies Magnet Clip. I am excited for both! Especially the magnet clip because I won't have to stick my arm in every time I want to add seaweed.

Thanks for following.

Unfortunately, while I was looking at the tank last night it looked like there was a single ich spot on the Blue Hippo Tang. I guess I need to restart the countdown now.

I am actually not 100% sure it was ich, it was only one spot, and it seemed maybe tad larger than an ich parasite should be.

So sorry about the wrasse. :-( This stuff happens but it still sucks.

As far as the hippo, are they bumps from under the skin or on the skin? Mine gets bumps under his skin every once in awhile, at first i thought it was ich too but it's usually the same bumps in the same spots. Happens every other month or two lasting maybe a day. No bumps or anything on any other fish either.

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

Unfortunately, it looks look it is above the skin, which really stinks because I really don't wait to restart the hypo clock. I'll see if I can't get some kind of picture later to see if you guys can confirm whether or not it is ich.

Thanks for your post.

Wow, my BRS order came already (a few hours ago), that seemed pretty quick to me!

Thanks Carey!

Time to check the salinity on the tank, make sure it is in the appropriate range.
