Just found my male B&W clown dried up on the floor.

Sorry Sniper, man you've had some horrible luck.
Odd for a clown to jump...
Saw your thread on the pink one too, just don't know either...
Wishing you some good luck, and hope you can figure out what's going on with it.

I know it is very odd for a clown to do...makes it worse that he JUST missed my sump by about 2 inches. Thoughts on taking the clown from my 36 and into the 55 to see if they'd pair up? They are both occy.

What is going on in the 55 you say? Well, I siliconed my pump onto my tubing today as my knee was finally feeling up to it.

That WOULD have been my only update...but my local reefer pal said we had to make an order. Who am I to argue? Rose bubble tip and gold maxima clam coming my way from saltwaterfish.com!

Got the dual reactor online! GFO and active carbon going. Simply siliconing the tube into the pump worked! There is a minor leak in the silicon...but it'll always be under water so I don't care.

I'm glad you finally got the GFO going! I'm sorry about your clown too.

It's all good. But thanks. Been wondering where you'd been bear, you always respond to my posts. Anyway...I'll say it is in honor of your return, but here are my 2 new guys in acclimation. One rose bta and a gold maxima clam. Digging a piece of LR for the clam out of my 36 as we speak.

They put them in the same bag? That's kinda risky, nonetheless, great buys! Can't wait to see this clam! You have a decent amount of sps, be careful with them and the nem.

They came in seperatw bags. I was eusjed to acclimate since i was going to murrysville. They only ended up in there for 10 min and did great at adjusting to the tank. The clam needs to set his foot though, picked him off of his side in the sand twice. I gave him a nice rock. The nem was under an overhang where i left him away from corals. He was put there on purpose.
