All [remaining] fish are still in the hospital tank and doing well. The clowns seem to have lost a bit of color but otherwise just seem bored in a bare tank with only PVC
. I am SO ready to get these fish back in the DT it's not even funny. I know it's entirely too soon now, since they've only been in treatment for 10 days. But I don't think I'm going to make it 60 days like some recommend. I'm going to give it a month and if all looks well they're going back to the DT.
On another note, something funny (to me) happened yesterday
Since I had all the rocks taken apart between having to catch all the fish and adding new rock, I decided to go on and take the pistol shrimp out of the DT while his partner in crime is in the hospital so it'll be easier to pair them up once the treatment is over. So he's been chilling in/on the sand bed with the LR
rubble in my fuge for about 2 weeks now.
Up until now I'd never heard him "pop" but yesterday I was doing my daily top-off ritual and he'd jumped out of the fuge into the return section. I've been putting the fresh top off water in the return section, and when I did it yesterday it sounded like those little fire crackers you throw on the ground. It scared the crap out of me. I quickly turned around to see him floating in the current snapping away.
