Red sea if your using a CPR overflow I have an alternative to using filter socks. I use the poly fil from walmart and stuff some in the overflow box itself and change it out every 2 days. Works the same as socks IMO .

I've got some not so good news tonight. Tonight I saw my Lawnmower Blenny dead. It might have been because I possibly had too much of a jump in salinity, or it could have been something else.

On a different note, I am getting very excited for my rock to come. I ordered it from reefrocks.net by the way. For those of you who have ordered before, approximately how long does it take to get delivered? I remember you guy(s) saying it did take a little longer than normal, right?

Anyway, when the rock does come and it gets in the tank, I will be sure to take pictures for you all.



Thanks!

I'm so sorry about your blenny......:-( was he eating and everything? they can be a little tricky if they dont eat frozen food...

I know my sand took like 3 weeks to come from reefrocks, a long wait but it was excellent quality. Hopefully your rock will be here soon.

Looking forward to pictures of course, you know how much i love them!

Thanks.

Actually, he wasn't eating anything. The only thing I ate since in he came from LA (that I can tell) was algae. He did however have quite the belly.

I will definitely post pictures, you know how bad I am about that, .

Congrats on the chalice by the way, aren't they pretty rare?

Yep, my first chalice. it's a pretty nice size too, at least from what i've seen they are pretty darn expensive. lol

My lawnmower lasted over ayear and then just disappeared if you remember, fat belly and all. Not sure what the life expectancy is on those guys, but I would assume it would be longer than you had yours. :-( Sometimes it's nothing we do but the fish die anyway, one of those life mysteries, which I hate by the way. I'd rather know if i did something wrong or the fish was sick bit sometimes there just is no easy answer..

Congrats on the Chalice, Carey! They are cool looking. I got my first frag of it about a year ago, pretty slow grower compared to a Monti, I'd say it's about doubled in size.
Good luck with it!

That's ok Flreefer, no need to apologize. I posted something in the wrong Carey build thread once, LOL.


It's all good.

Thanks,
Sorry about your Lawnmower...like Carey said, sometimes the stock we receive are doomed and there's really no way to tell.

Here are the two things I ordered from BRS! I also have that eBay Ro/Di unit on its way.
