Dear blog,

Dear blog I am leaving you! I have found a new social media that loves me back, and doesn't complain if I leave the lid up.

Lost a fish in QT

Posted 12/29/2012 at 10:29 PM by ACBlinky

Woke up this morning to discover that the tiny damsel, which I researched and discovered to be Pomacentrus bankanensis, was dead on the bottom of the QT. Poor little guy, he was less than an inch long, just a baby.

I did a 50% water change yesterday, and the fish seemed to appreciate it, but maybe the stress was too much for the little damsel. The others are doing very well.

The kole has been hiding in a PVC tube, but this morning she decided that she'd come out in...

New fish in QT

Posted 12/26/2012 at 11:36 PM by ACBlinky

I haven't updated in a while...
We took the two clowns, yellow goby and hawkfish out of the QT (there seemed no reason to keep them there, they were never ill) and added them to the reef.

Then today we braved the insane boxing day crowds and went to the closest 'LFS' an hour away for their annual sale. We bought three buckets of Reef Crystals -- I've been using IO until now, but with all the hard corals in the tank I figured for $10 more a bucket it's worth it for the extra...

Well unfortunately the kole tang died a couple days ago in QT, not entirely sure why. The other four fish seem well, though the longnosed hawk won't take anything but frozen food.

The main tank has so many pods, it's just incredible. Tiny pinhead sized isopods on the glass near the sand, a few large amphipods in the rocks, and about seven zillion 1/8" pods (iso, amphi, cope, I have no idea). The cleaner shrimp walks over the rocks and the 'pods part like the Red Sea, and rejoin...

It's picture time!

Posted 11/29/2012 at 04:07 PM by ACBlinky

Okay fair warning, they're low quality pictures from my blackberry, but... everyone loves pictures even if they're fuzzy, right?

Fish are here, hanging out in the QT. I got a pair of ocellaris clownfish, a yellow watchman goby, a longnose hawkfish and a kole tang.

The QT is being treated with Cupramine and the fish will be in copper at therapeutic levels for six weeks (unless they get sick!)

The display is doing well. I moved a couple of rocks around...
