Tore my tank apart looking for my firefish... Verdict is... Pistol shrimp guilty of 1st degree murder and eating the evidence :-(

Sentencing to be rolled out tomorrow... Removal from tank and taken back to lfs for a full refund and being replaced with a six line wrasse and a new firefish who I am naming Rocket II

What Did You Do...

Hello Aa...

A 50 percent water change in this planted 55 G, low tech, subdued lighting. No special ferts or systems. Plants are Anubias nangi, a little Java fern, Brazilian Water weed and Pennywort. Just a lot of pure, treated tap water flushed through the tank every week.

Tore down my 36 bowfront and changed the gravel to sand to give it a more somewhat natural look.Took a couple hours but my guys seem happier now and I'm proud of myself. Here's an after shot.

Looks great! You have inspired me to try sand next time. Looks so much better than gravel.

Worked all day on my 30g Amazonian. Cleaned all filters , fittings, hoses, heater, UV sterilizer, everything! Did 66% PWC and vac'd gravel lightly. Trimmed plants, moved some, "combed"(literally with hair comb) the Myrio to get the misc. debris out of the leaves. Put in root tabs, then cleaned all the mess I made up. Whew! Me and the fishys are happy! Later, OS.

Took every rock and coral out of my tank to catch Hercules the evil pistol shrimp that ate my firefish. Took him back and got a new firefish and a six line wrasse. Tried to get my rock back how I like it but I couldn't I'll just have to get used to it I guess
