Hey Everyone --
Thanks again to everyone that talked me down the other day over this QT
situation I've found myself in. The ammo was at zero this morning, and the nitrites were at 0.5 ppm
. Waiting and watching...
I was finally was able to get a decent picture of the gramma with the spot (little bugger hardly stays still). The arrow on the right points to the (only) spot in question. I'm also beginning to wonder if the little guy is eating, evidenced by the shallow in his gut (left arrow).
I've got some LR
and seaweed in there for the blenny to graze on, and I've been giving the gramma some mysis shirmp, which I've been told (and seen) he will eat (although perhaps not enough?).
