Hello everyone. I'm back from Alaska and ready to concentrate on the 40g breeder tank. As you will recall, I got it or Christmas, set it up with dry live rock and live sand, had Dino's, diatoms, and green algae on the glass and sand. I went lights out for several days, and Dino's disappeared. Tank has continued running for a month after this. I have 3 three banded trochus and a cleaner shrimp. I put three Chromis in there before the trip, and they all died within days, before I left for the trip. Since the tank ran while I was in Alaska, with basically nothing in it, I tested it yesterday and ammonia and nitrites were 0 and nitrates at 10. Called LFS
, but they have none of the three fish I want to start with.
I need an opinion here. What are the pros and cons of ordering from LiveAquaria? And if they don't have a specific fish, approximately how long does it take to get it when you ask in an email to notify you when it comes in? I haven't had any luck with three LFS
in my area. They never contacted me, then one of them sold my fish.
Thanks for the help.
