In the meantime, I may do a skimmer and return pump upgrade. I might have a deal on an Eshopps skimmer for cheap and am considering a Jebao DC return pump.

I am so sorry to hear about the Hogfish, I hope your eventual new specimen give you better luck.

That is exciting about the skimmer and pump upgrade!

I once bought a beautiful 6" Harlequin Tusk ($200+) which ended up being blind. He died when he went for a krill and bit down on my lion's spine. You never know what you are going to get, but you also can't blame the store. They don't know either.

I know it is not the LFS's fault. They special ordered it for me and it had just been picked up from the distributer in Los Angeles a couple of hours before I got it and they had just got it the night before. I've been buying fish from this place for close to 30 years and you win a few and lose very few.

I did get a deal on an Eshopps skimmer and should be getting that later today. I bought my coral guy a fuzzy dwarf lion that he did not have cash for and he is giving me the skimmer. Only 6 months old too.

Is it one of their cone skimmers? They do a good job for sure.

I think it is an Eshopps S 200 Cone skimmer. It was running a 180 reef tank, so I'm guessing it will do okay for my 250 FOWLR.

Nice! Needs a bit of a clean but it should definitely do the job

He sent me that picture and said he would clean it up, but for the deal I'm getting it for, I'm willing to do some scrubbing.
