Well you can paint the back like mine is. 4 weeks old is your cycle over? Your fish could be dying because its not cycled and doesn't have enough filtration. Also what kind of lighting do you have? I'm surprised your anemone is still alive....

I heard of a method to get fish like maroons to not pick on new fish. To turn the lights off and add the fish then wait another 12 hours and turn the actinics on the then wait and turn the lights o n back to there normal cycle witch will give the fish a chance to get used to the tank and also find his spot. But then if I buy the fish and the maroon still picks on it it will be a waste of money bc of no returns!!!!

That helps the fish find a hiding spot but won't effect weather it gets picked on or not.

That might work with a maroon. It's a better option than a goby

Ok but I won't have much money for a while so like right now I'll buy maybe 10-20 dollars worth of live rock every once in a while. Then later a six line then a goby then whatever comes along I guess. I'll post stuff tomarrow.
