Sadielynn I'm just curious about what type of lighting you keep on your nanos? Have you posted any pictures of them on this website?

I had some posted but I think they are gone now . I run 80 watts dual satellite pc on my 10 gallon and 72 watts catalina starter light on the 6.5 gallon , both run a configuration of a 50/50 bulb and a acitinc bulb for a deeper blue look .... I run mostly softies and some lps with those configurations ,and have done so for nearly 4 years with out issues ... I do need to get some updated photos uploaded soon since I have added a couple things and took the 6.5 in a totally diffrent direction and stocked it with fish . I also added out some more corals this time round and it is fully stocked more than I would like but it works

Do you have heat issues with the 10 Gallon? where did you purchase that lighting? I'm still looking for something, but don't know if the MH im looking at will work even though they can be almost 1 ft above the water

The first one I got was from thatpetplace.com I sold it when I tore down the second 10 .....
the second one I got was used 65 watter that I cut and replaced all wiring ect I ended up having it retro fitted (cost was about 50-65 bucks shipping included ) with 2 new moonlights , new fan ,2 new ballasts , and a new splash guard , new bands and new legs . I dont use the legs now I just use the rubber feet and sit it on top I like the look more and with all the retro it is basically brand new .... You can find the dual satallite fixtures new and used ranging from 40-bucks used with out lamps(which unless you know and trust the source should be replaced to insure the freshest bulbs ,spectrum possible) to 140 with lamps ...
My heat issues are negated with 2 fans that run via a reef keeper and turn on at a predermined temp of 77.6* and off at 77.0* the lights will cut off if the temp goes above 80* I also have a fan that cools the light as well that does nothing more than just extend the life of the bulb and keeps it and the fixture cool to the tuch . I do have to top off 2 times a day sometimes only one time .... I have never really had an issue with the 80 watt dual lights I will keep an eye open for deals they do come along

I have had that happen too , I am not sure if it is just the stress that cause them to subcome or not , try running the drip at about 2-3 gtts per second and see if that helps .. if not I have already acclimated for under 20 minutes and added ,,, and before I get bashed I still have had the same shrimp for close to 2 years now ...

I called the lfs and the guy said that over 30-45 minutes the temp dropping will be a big thing, but i used a bottle of warm water to keep it arouind 75. this is very frustrating and idk if i should get another cleaner, or use the credit to switch to a clown fish. With i knew exactly what happened to it, but i guess theres only 1 person who knows

90 minutes for acclimation is pretty long. Even if the temp was OK, you might get in to other issues. I rarely acclimate longer than 1 hour... for anything. It all depends on the salinity difference between the fish store and my tank. If the salinity is close, then it's a short acclimation.

Then again, it could've just been bad luck.

he did look good for the first part of the acclimation, what complications do you run into when acclimating too long. I thought it was the longer the more beneficial for the organism. If i were to re-try what would i do different. plus when i go back im getting rid of the damsels and getting a clownfish or a type of goby. Anything bad about a six line wrasse and firefish?
