New here! Frustrated & Fascinated!

Hello everyone, I started my tank in January 2015. I started with live sand and live rock and built up from there. I had a rough start with a stowaway gorilla crab, recovered for a bit but now have lost my fish and anenome one at a timeÖ
The closest fish store is about an hour away, and I don't have anyone close to "geek out" with.
I have done a ton of reading, and "You Tube Schooling" but a lot of it can be conflicting...
I have a Nuvo 30 aquarium
Current Orbit Marine LED light
And now added a Aqua Euro Protein skimmer

I was also told to add a magnet-attached fan thing to increase the current, but it has slurped up my Sea Hair, and a beautiful Spanish Dancer... I have since unplugged it... Snif...

I was told to put my lights on a low blue only, to then learn ( after 2 anenome disappeared) that they like a brighter light...

My water balanced perfect each time I test it, thanks to my blood shrimp and camel hump shrimp for running clean up....

I love LOVE my tank, I am just frustrated with the deaths of my new toys...

Two Gobys and one Black Capped Basslet (?) have disappeared without a trace.... No sign of any other stowaways....

Any advice for a newcomer is welcome!
I will continue to lurk and learn here...

-Jess.


Just sitt'in round, staring at my tank...

Welcome to the forum!!! Have you moved your rock around to look for the gobys? I know I 'lost' my pink spotted goby for a few days before moving around some rock.

Hi! I had a couple of rocks shift in the night... I am wondering if "he" got smushed... I am sad.... But hopeful, maybe he will pop out the back?

I would check under those rocks. I think I trapped mine under the rock, and had to force him out so i could place the rock back down.
How long have they been missing? If it hasn't been that long you might want to wait
