Since i took the 200w fluval heater out of the 72 to use in the qt tank, i figured id toss that and an evo 750 ph in the rodi water bin. now its set up so that the night prior to a pwc, ill simply plug those two in and ill have warm circulated water for my pwc's. I still need to stop at the hardware store to pick up 3-4 ft of 1" flex line. I figured since my old skimmer pump has a short in it, i could use it to pump water out of the rodi container. If i can get ahold of some 4x4 wood, im going to build a stand for the container so that i can sit the pump under it, then ill simply buy a 1" bulkhead and drill the bottom of thw container. Sure its a bunch of work but i need to be able to pull out every last inch of water from that container

Looks like the flame angel int going to make it. So tired of them dying for no reason. They eat great and are active members of the tank, then just die. Looking at other fish that have bright orange coloring

Don't be too hard on yourself. I've lost my clown, kole, and orange shoulder tang in the last 2 months. Smh. All perms are great. I do w/c religiously. Everyone else looks great. I want a hawkish so bad too, but they're not the cheapest fish around. Lol

Thank you for the words of encouragement. Im sorry to hear about your fish ive def had my fair share of losses so i fully understand. I have 3-4 fish that were $100 or over in our tank so the hawkfish price isnt too bad lol. (cant believe i managed to get away with spending that much money on fish)

Well im currently in the midst of a decent struggle with petco to get some sort of resolution to these 2 lost flame angels. At first, through email, they werent willing to do anything. Then after calling they wanted to offer $5 coupon (for $120 in lost fish) then offered $25, got escalated to a manager. At which point i was told i had to talk to the actual store manager and ask for a credit. Upon pushing further, im now awaiting a phone call from "upper management". I must say though that no expelatives were used and neither i or the agents lost our cool. It was aggravating but not upsetting at all. Although i dont understand their "protocol" for these instances, they handled themselves in a professional manner... Which is rare

Hawk fish, especially long nosed are excellent jumpers. I have lost several over the years as they figured out how to jump thru tiny holes.

It's hard for both sides. You think they could have sold you poisoned fish and they commonly deal with folks that run fish killing systems. I have a marine biologist friend that will run autopsies for me every now and then. But I haven't lost any fish for a while and when I did it was because of reasons I understood. I for example, can't keep Mandarins. No matter the amount of pods. I also have problems with clams. Everything else prospers and lives long lives.
