I'm sorry to hear that your'e still having trouble with that darn ich. I would be sure it's actual ich before getting upset though, my tangs always seem to have sand granules on them and the blue one gets abrasions from how he sleeps in the rocks. Un nerves me everytime I see them, first thought is always ICH OMG what do I do.... then I realize I am just being paranoid. I hope thats the case with you.

I'm really itching to see this tank up and running and fully loaded, like you said, enjoyable to view rather than wondering and stressing over it.

Thanks, I think I am going to bite the bullet and start raising the salinity and hope that what I see is not ich. I probably won't start today, but I will have time because I have Monday and Tuesday off from school. I can't wait to finally enjoy the tank.

Thanks Hondatek and Carey, your posts are appreciated!

A little update for this evening:

I added the rest of the sand to the tank. It looks better now, especially since the sand I put in is new and white.

I also put some salt in my garbage can full with water. My plan is to have the salinity in the garbage bins very high, that way, I don't have to change out as much water each time to get the salinity up. I shoud go 1.001-1.002 per day, right?

Thanks for reading!

Thanks, I want to be done too! I am so pumped. I will be ordering some base rock soon too. I can see it now, a Pink Spotted Watchman Goby poking his head out from under a rock, a clean sand bed filled with a coral, etc. LOL. I can't wait!

Alright, so I attempted my first rise in salinity tonight.

Another possible stocking option popped onto my brain yesterday. What do you guys think of a few Schooling Bannerfish? Not a definite, just looking for opinions.

As far as the next livestock order, I hope to order from LA sometime in June. I will order some fish and maybe a few corals.

Any suggestions for my order I am putting on next month?


Thanks for reading!
