is on about strike 3 in my book as it is. Unfortunately they're the best stocked around (even if they are nimrods). The goof is that the fist guy I talked to a few weeks ago actually recommended the Chromis and allayed our fears of it being agressive. I should have just went with my plan.
We have the QT
tank all ready. The filter media has been in the wet/dry (submerged) for 2 weeks now. We have the tank, heater, "lights" and a nice collection of PVC
that we're going to put in it. We're going to wait a week or two and then pick up fish for the QT
tank. We're definitely going to be building up the tank slowly. Right now there are 3 fish in there. In a couple of weeks we'll put in those 3 damsels into QT
Lando, you're probably right. I thought maybe the total price of fish was the same, but as it turns out I spent about 10$ more (isn't the best interest of the fish worth more than 10$?!) on fish by starting with the tang. And then of course if it bites the dust...
AustinsDad, Thanks for reassuring me that the tang isn't going to throw out the newcomers when they arrive! I must have read 3 posts just after that tang went in I read 3 or 4 posts that said that the tang should go in last! Ack!
Macatua, why wouldn't my cardinals be eating? Are they difficult to get to eat? What's their favorite food if I find they aren't munching on the regular fare?
Nothing like the best laid plans getting a wrench thrown in by the LFS
! I need to just ignore them when they talk. These are the same people who told me to throw fish in 2 days after the water went in and that they'd never heard of an aptasia. *sigh*
