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

Found this to be interesting. I always forgot to mention the feather duster in the tank hadn't been out in awhile. It was odd. And just noticed this today, a new crown. It'll be interesting to see if another crowns since there were 2 in the tube. Wonder if one died or if something else was stressing them.

Well, sad day. Came home and the b/w maxima clam's shell was cleaned out. Though the dip was most likely necessary, was too late and too stressful probably. So, here is hoping that the continued stable parameters in the tank keep everything else fine. And now to keep on truckin.

Sorry about your clam, I know the feeling though, I knocked my one clam I did have off the rock and ripped his foot right out. :-( I'm scared to try another lol

Well it isn't that hard...my derasa keeps doing well. It is either one of two things, me getting maxima that are small or the fact they are maxima. We'll find out as I have a larger maxima in there that I bought for my birthday.

I pulled the trigger on an idea I've been thinking about for awhile. Turning off the moonlights. The thought goes back to some stuff I read forever ago about a true dark stage being healthy for the tank, even though they aren't very strong. Were off for an hour and I changed my mind. I was awed. So much had come out to play. Literally so many mini brittle stars they were being blown off and around by the power heads. Really cool. So, lights are unplugged. Probably get a cheap timer for them so there is an actual dark out this weekend.
