It is a defeated feeling of sorrow and loss. It is really a grieving process to be honest. That is what some time will take to heal.

Todd's 240g Build

Thanks everyone.

I added three big Turbo snails yesterday. Had then in my 60g cube and they kept knocking frags over. At least there is something alive in there now. 😀

I'm trying to figure out which route to go with restocking. It looks like I will have the Purple Tang to start. As much as the last stock list was pretty close to a dream list, I am not sure that I want to repeat that. Part of me is considering doing reef but sticking to zoas and LPS (maybe anemones?), but I love Angels, so that probably isn't the best way to go.

Think through the most amazing tanks you have seen - or fish in a set up. Can you make something like that happen? Or create the parts that you admired the most.

Since you are at ground level here, you have many options. I am too inexperienced to make any SW recommendations for a tank of that size. But can try to get you thinking what crazy ideas you might have that could become a reality?!!!

I always wanted one of the green sea grass wrasses, but my tank is too small. I never see anyone with them. Maybe you can keep one for me. Lol.

I'm not sure I've ever seen one in a LFS but they sound interesting.

Wow...I came home today and did not see my purple tang in QT. I've got a 35g set up underneath my son's 60g (eventually will become a sump), so it's not always easy to see everything. I found it dead. It had been eating and seemed fine. It was going back into my DT on the 28th. That was the last survivor. Whatever diseases this started off as won this battle with 100% fatality rate. My DT is still fallow, but now it's weeks before I get a new fish, QT it and can add it. It's times like this where you want to just throw in the towel and quit. I won't, but this really stinks...

Dang. Sorry for your luck man. Glad your not throwing in the towel. Hopefully here soon you will have a nice clean parasite free tank and things will shine in your favor.

Very strange. It really sucks when you don't know what happened. I lost my wartskin angler and my lion within a week of each other and they were perfectly healthy before. I chalked it up to contaminated food because they both are the same thing before they died, but I will never know.

Today is the big day. The 240g has been fallow long enough that anything nasty should have perished. As luck would have it, there was someone looking to get rid of their 6-7" (LPS-munching) Magnificent Foxface. I traded a frag of Bloodshot zoas and a few bucks, so this will be my first addition in a few weeks. This is the picture he sent...
