Feed a live food if possible - live brine and ween him onto something with more nutrition. I've been struggling to get my gobies to eat for the past 3 weeks. They won't touch live, frozen or pellet food. I ended up buying some frozen daphnia and squeezed a clove of garlic into the fozen cube, and they can't resist!

I tried brine shrimp today didn't even touch it. So I will try garlic with mysis shrimp.

I was more worried about cleaner wrasse but he is a pig, even eat whole bunch of flakes today.

My gramma loved most any carnivore food I put in. As stated you can get some garlic, its' called garlic extreme or something similiar and try that. Theres stuff called entice as well that is supposed to work.

He's probably just buried himself in the sand. It's common for a wrasse to bury itself when sleeping or stressed. I would give it 2 days or so before ripping apart your tank to find it. Though, if you don't see it now, you can't exactly give it cpr so if he's gone, unfortunately he's gone and I wouldn't tear apart to much to find him.

I got about 15lbs liverock (was live) from a friend. It's been out of water for 6 months. But it's all yellow on top.

What's the process of putting it into my tank and why it's yellow?

Few people came over this weekend for the fish. No luck on selling. Hate the low ballers. Offering 5-10$ for fish.

I have decided to go for a bigger tank. I only have about 4' of spacing. Largest I can go is 75 gallons.

But I am worried about the amount of time for upkeep. If anyone have a 75 gallon Plz share ur experience. How many hours a week and cost of upkeep. I think my current lighting should be sufficient.

I hope it's not too much to handle....

Peace
