There are no more traces of ammonia or nitrite, i tested 3 times to be sure haha
Yesterday i headed down to my lfs
to get a cleanup crew and in a way, after yesterday's trip I found that i can trust my lfs
more. I wanted to buy some hermit crabs and my lfs
was honest and said they were low on crabs and the guy asked me about my tank. i told him i never produced diatoms or algae (i left my blinds closed and realized i have good but weak lighting) so he didn't sell me a cleanup crew. I asked if i could take a fish home, again he was honest because i wanted a goby (i forgot the name, it was brown though) and he warned me that i needed some live rock growth first. So he pointed me to the clownfish so i bought 2:]
So, i officially have my first 2 fish:]
I don't know if you guys want to see them or not haha but i do have questions.
I did the floating bag acclimation and at first i was worried because i read that new fish may be a bit shy and have a hard time adjusting. Not these guys, they started exploring the entire tank almost immediately.
Do fishes develop their own way of amusement? I don't have names for them yet but the bigger clownfish likes to divebomb down the filter current and swim back up. If he's not doing that, he swims to the bottom of the tank and swims straight up and goes directly over the thermometer and shoot diagonally. then repeat haha
I doubt they are paired yet but more like familiar with each other? They separate from time to time and then when they realize they are separate, either the smaller clowfish swiftly swims to the bigger one or vice a versa but i have noticed that the bigger clownfish bumps the smaller one every other time. this is because they're still both males right?
