It's super easy when it's on such a small tank!

I'm thinking my best plan should be to get the new fish ASAP... because I feel like I'm increasing my chances of disease breaking out each day the firefish continues to pick on my poor neon goby. So I'll have to take my chances...

Just be very observant of the other fish in the tank that are with the clown goby you want to buy. Make sure they all look healthy.

Went to my LFS. Turns out they didn't have any. They should get them in within two weeks though. I did pick up some frozen mysis shrimp, so the fish will get a treat tonight!

I'm sorry they didn't have any. Your fish will love the mysis!

My fish went crazy for them! It was so funny to see the nassarius snails make an appearance! Haven't seen them in so long lol.

On tracking it says my light is out for delivery so expecting it soon!

This morning I looked into the tank at around 6:15 to see what goes on in there... (which I usually do every morning) but today I noticed something strange. My hermit crabs were feasting on a dead turbo snail! I doubt they killed it, his shell is much too big for the little hermits, so I guess the poor snails are slowly starving. They are always just sitting on the glass... I don't know if they're getting anything to eat. I knew they were a bad idea from the beginning, but I definitely will not be getting anymore of them until I actually get something for them to clean up.
It's weird because I just got home (it's about 2:25) and the snail body is completely gone... those hermits are such pigs!

Some snails, like turbos can not get back up if they land on their backs. Then the predators can get to them. Maybe what happened.
