I `m sorry but about the fish the only sure way will be to just go ahead and take the rock out and get hiom. I`ve tried all kind of ways and they just would not work. I just bit the bullet and went after him. On the top offs I`d say that is better than nothing but you`ll have a couple of high salinity swings plus even half of 17 days will still rise pretty high. If I was to go 7 or 8 days without Top offs my water would be short 7 or 8 gallons of FW. Dont seem like much but it is. I hope all goes well.

This is exactly what I was hoping to get - brighter/more vibrant fish. Would I do best by adding something like 2x28w T-5 w/ 1 10k/1 actinic (coralife aqualight 48" t-5) or would I do better if I add 2x actinic bulbs?



I was also able to catch the clownfish last night I shocked him with light in the middle of the night and caught him pretty easily!


Here are some pics of the fish! It's hard to get clear pictures because the front glass is very dirty!! What is the big damsel?? I know one is 3 stripe and one is sergeant major.

I`m glad you was able to catch him.

How about this one:

Only $22. I am considering purchasing lighting from them so I might buy this at the same time.

Thanks! I just picked up an algae brush so hopefully i'll get some much nicer ones tomorrow! Also, once my filter is back from repair the water will be clearer too!

I was wondering - what is the ideal temperature for these type of fish? Liveaquaria has it as 72-78F (my temp was around 26, but now I've moved it to 24-24.5).

I picked up 9 more snails tonight (supposed to be 10 but one was an empty shell ) and I got 5 more hermit crabs - 4 tiny ones and 1 that's about 1.5cm shell. Now - Total 19 snails and 8 crabs (but I havent seen the first 3 since I put them in)

Sorry to keep posting pics but I'm excited and I cleaned the tank!
