Mine dont ever hide? I have a YWMG who loves to be rubbed on the back and a black clown goby in my 3g who bites my finger when im working in his tank lol. Also my 2 purple fire fish (not gobys but whatever) in my 37g are always out

Have you had experience with some hiding?

Dosed prazi in the 20 after a 5g wc, bought another battery powered air motor for $15 at petsmart, snow storm tonight, power outages on the horizion! Hopefully not for me though . Hand fed the 37g and my big blenny bit my hand 4 times lol, feels like a cats tongue! Also my valentini clipped my finger nails for me aswell.

Pistol shrimp attacked my big 2" blue nuckel hermit in the 20, hunger little guy kills anything in sight! Heres his murder listing so far-
2 margarita snails
1 banded trochus snail
6 dwarf zebra hermits
And has made many attempts to catch the blue tux urchin and baby blenny.

My big emerald crab has also made attempts to capture the blenny.

Topped of the 3g, also did a 30% wc on it.

15g wc on the 37g

Took on 2 new cichlids. They were given to me by a mom who didn't realize there was a difference between African and NW cichlids and normal community fish so these guys were deemed 'too hostile'. I set up this 29g using the Frankenstein my established giant tanks so all decor items, substrate and filters are matured, along with 15g of water from my hospital tank.

Does anyone have a clue on the African what species I'm looking at, what lake/river he/she is from and will I be okay using a 75g octagonal for the school I know I'm gonna wind up getting?

I'm also not sure on the other guy either- the lady said she bought it as a firemouth- obviously mislabeled. Is he a severum or festivum? He's going to be sharing a 90g with a Dempsey and 2 pollini once the tank is cycled and he gets a couple inches bigger (7 inch Dempsey, a 5 inch pollini and a 6 inch pollini would demolish this 2 1/2 incher, but he's got fight!!

I also cleaned my 125g flowerhorn tank of the unsightly algae from accidental full sun exposure (I was away for a couple of days and my cats knocked the curtains in my kitchen down). On a good note, at least my bristle nose pleco are nice and busy.

Also played ping pong with my Oscars- Piggy and Gino using a hyacinth bulb.

Total water changed= 100g
Total time spent = 15 hours
Partial changing for my 90g, 125g, 150g, 40g, 60g, 65g, 20g, 10g and 5g!!

I'm one tired aquarium freak!!

I have- I have a tank that I set up and maintain for a buddy of mine. His sleeper goby, shrimp goby and WM goby go unseen for a couple days at a time- but the tank is 300g and a full grown stars and stripes puffer is quite the beast to hide from in 240lbs of live rock

Did a pwc on the QT tank and added a few more fish, the Glowlights. Added Stress Coat too. Also the same with a male Dragonscale Betta, new guy, he is blue and golden yellow. He isn't in the best shape but doesn't look too bad either, also in QT by himself. Pics in the next few days, sorry you have to wait. Added a little heater to the Chi, had used it's heater for the QT.
