well on a more depressing note. lost my lionfish for unknown reasons today. walked over to my tank and there he was getting picked apart clean by my hermit crabs. he was eating fine, nitrates where in the 30's and no signs of sickness. it feels really discouraging right now with that. my foxface and maroon are doing just fine and eating away. i dont seem to have very much luck with lionfish though...he wouldnt take any of the krill or silversides i fed him but only ate ghost shrimp. did he die from just not getting enough food from solely eating ghost shrimp? i didnt starve him i fed him ghosts for a few days then tried frozen but he never took.
not a good labor day.
