Just went to my LFS
last night and picked up my first two clowns! Got them along with 5 red legged hermits & 3 snails to start off.
Tested my water first... 0/0/0, 78F, 1.021/2 salinity. (I need to pick up an Alk
tester today... not many stores around here carry those). Drip acclimated them... took about a couple hours! 8O
Well, when they first got into the tank... they seemed a bit "out of breath" like they were struggling a bit, at the bottom of the tank. But after about a half hour, they were up and about, and now this morning they're swimming together from side to side
One thing that did kinda catch me off guard was that it seemed like my current was too strong. The return from my mag 9.5 into two Loc-Line nozzles seemed like it was just right. Should I just leave my 2 MJ1200's off, or just rotate one each on at a time? The little guys couldn't even swim right when they were blasting.
(here they are!)
