Yep, sometimes it a take a fish 3 - 5 days to acclimate to a new tank. They may not eat during that time. The garlic seems to help.

Sorry Carla, never been there and not quite casual driving distance.

How about me Carla? My closest is 1100km away (DannyB in Melbourne) and then the only other person on this forum (regularly) Sharpie, is about 2000km.

Yeah, we're in the same boat (no pun ). I've thought about putting a flyer on the LFS bulletin board but too afraid of some really annoying person that I won't be able to get rid of.

Zero...what the update on the little goby?

Well.. i think he's doing a bit better. He's moving all over the tank now and weaving through my rocks.. so.. and i'm pretty sure i saw him eat a piece of mysis shrimp. So.. yeah. He still looks really skinny.. but i've got faith. Hopefully he'll eat more once i get that garlic stuff.

It will take a few weeks for it to fatten up (but not too much I hope).
The fact that is eating and moving around does point to a normal acclimation issue.

Carla and Mitch, you always have friends here, even if we can't offer a cup a of live sand to get you started.

I got lucky when I started my tank. Someone nearby bought the livestock including the sand from a soldier who was being deployed overseas. I got a couple of pounds of LS filled with spaghetti worms and other life. I've passed on a cup to others in the area when asked.

Will do.

EDIT**

Alright guys, i think my worrying is over. When i fed the tank today i finally saw him eat.. ALOT. He was going after food and munching on nice size pieces too. I think he just likes the corners of the tanks a lot. I'm just glad to see him eat. He looks healthy and swims around and all.. so i think he is recouping. Anyways, i think if i keep my water conditions pristine and i feed every day for the next couple of weeks, he will be nice and plump and healthy to boot. At least that's what i'm hoping for..

Crossing my fingers for this little guy
