Sorry huma to hear about the trigger. I know the feeling, I hate not knowing why something can just up and die for no apparent reason.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

It's the worst feeling. As a semi- advanced hobbyist you try to setup a direction or "end game" for your tank, and you take every step you can towards that. But events like this just stop everything in its tracks. It's beyond frustrating

Sorry Huma. I definitely know the feeling of losing fish.

Sorry to hear that you lost your fish huma. Atleast you get to move to fill reef! I understand the feeling. My tank issues have continued into cyano now. Have you and the wife decided on the kind of reef tank?

It's more than likely going to be an Lps/ Sps mixed reef. More focus on the Lps with some Sps thrown in. I've decided I'm not doing anything at all to the tank until January when upgrade 3.0 comes around. I need to focus on keeping these remaining fish nice and fat so they can handle the changes better. A yellow tang and flame angel will be added in January. Only difference is that with the yellow tang, he will be going into an acrylic box to allow the purple to calm down, and the flame angel is coming from the reputable fish store, not the plague-ridden petco that I got the first 2 doomed angels from

Decided to take on a mini-project! Stopped by giant eagle and picked up the needed ingredients to make my own food. Mr. X gave me a starting point of squid, smelts, whitefish, shrimp and cyclop-eeze. I had to alter it due to not being able to get certain parts, but I ended up with tilapia, flounder, squid, clam, and shrimp. I took care in grinding it up in the food processor, so that I didn't grind it to a pulp. Ended up with a nice chunky paste and the fish seem to like it. Actually I lied, the puffer went absolutely nuts for it. I'll still be feeding the mixed pellets and algae sheets. I'm hoping at some point, once I dial in the food, that I can eliminate the pellets altogether. But that's down the road. Off to attempt to upload some photos
