After seeing your PBT I did some research and picked up one for my 75g tank. It started eating within an hour of being put in my QT. It's been in there for a week now. Beautiful color. All the reading in the world can't beat hands on experiance.

I think this warrants pictures....
I wish you and your PBT the best! They're absolutely stunning in person.

Well, I'm back from my 3 day trip for freshman orientation about 3 and a half hours away from where I live. And I come home to check on my fish, and lo and behold MY 220 SPRANG A LEAK!!!!!!!! Fortunately, I came home and the sandbed had slowed the leak down so it wasn't a massive downpour. Probably 100 gallons of water was lost to the hardwood floor, but thankfully all the fish were ok. There was a huge crack on the side of the tank. I have no idea what caused this, I guess just old age. This was an old second hand tank anyway, so no big deal for now. But the hunt for a new tank begins! Exciting and sad at the same time. The fish are housed in a 75 gallon tank right now. No problems at all and the Powder Blue is eating more like the other fish. So now, I'm still waiting for thincat's picture of his PBT.

of course it always happens when you're not there to catch it at the start. hopefully the floor isnt ruined too. good luck in finding a replacement tank that wont cost more than an arm and a leg. you should have at least one of each to be able to maintain the tank.

I have plenty of graduation money left over to pay for another tank. I just want to find the best place to have it made to avoid future incidents like this one. The way the water was emptying it had probably broken a few hours before I got home. The floor isn't too bad now. Nothing some paper towels and a Swiffer WetJet couldn't fix. So the fish are in the 75 with liverock. But one rock has a hitchhiker Riccordia on it. So, does this make it a reef?

Beautiful! This made my day. Looks incredibly healthy. Congrats on a fine, healthy specimen. How big is it and what are you QTing him in? What are you feeding it?
I guess I'll post some pics of the new 75 gallon holding tank tomorrow.

He is around 2 1/2" and he is in a 10gal tank that I have LR in. I grow macro algae in some of the rocks and switch them out in my DI. This is not the tank that I treat sick fish in. I have one that I set up as needed for that reason only. This way the new fish gets to munch on reef rock goodies. I also feed and he seems to really like it, Reef Chile for BRS. He also seems to like the nori as it took less then 1/2 hour before he started munching on it. I should say attacking it.
Oh, the fish colored up very nicely when I got it home.
