Plans For Today

I purchased a beautiful dotty back yesterday but I have a very mean damsel. He won't let the dotty back make any type of appearance. I've been trying to catch the bully or about 50 min now... Any suggestion? Starting to remove rock now. Ugh. I'm going to need more coffee.

Woohoo got the little [moderator edit]. Now what to do with him? Oh and our dotty back is starting to show himself. Now if only my Steelers could win today, it might be a good day.

If you can pull the bully and leave him out for a week, rearrange your tank, reintroduce him in the dark after feeding your fish. Or you can try being the bully and chase the bully with a net. If that isn't working then net the bully for a few minutes. Good luck!

Yeah probably just going to leave him out. I had 4 other damsels and he managed to kill them too. Too bad I waited this long to actually remove him. He's in qt under the tank until I can get going and go the my lfs to return his [moderator edit]... Lol

Yeah, if he's already killed 4 fish, he's gotta go. Not worth it.

I have mysis, cyclopeeze, brine, krill, bloodworms, new spectrum pellet, marine flakes, silversides that I chop up and some "marine cuisine" that I kinda rotate at feeding time. Hopefully he'll eat one I those.

I'm sure he will. Hasn't your tank been up for awhile? I bought a bottle of live copepods. Hopefully they multiply
