Got a sailfin today Smile. Pics coming soon Very Happy.

*Okay here we are. When he was acclimating in the bowl one of your parakeets flew into it!!! Mad. Thank god that she didnt scrath up franklin Smile. I had to give the parakeet a nice FW bath though lol. He has gotten right to cleaning up the algae and he is an excuse to upgrade. Since the tank is my dad and ours project i made sure he new it would get 15 inches big and that we would be upgrading to a 125g aquarium Very Happy. He's only four 1/2 inches big though so we have about 8 months or a year...okay here they are. Happy

Acclimating





In the tank Very Happy.

Okay i put some up. Btw it was a hard decision between the blue, yellow, and powder brown tang. But after thorougly inspecting each we concluded that since he had been there the longest (2 months) and since he looked the healthiest we got him Smile.

Yep. He is so cool. I am really happy because the B&W damsel who thought he was the king of the tank turns out not to be with this guy in there.

Bad BAD day!!!! Sad Sad Sad. Tank crashed last night Sad. Out of eight fish we now have two left. Franklin, my Sailfin died, my favorite fish. We also lost Charles my beloved six line and two yellow tail damsels and a blue devil Sad. All we have left is the fire goby and the b&w damsel.

No idea what made everything crash. Nitrates, nitrite & ammonia were all at zero. But then we checked the pH. Not good, it was 7.4 and we all know how low that is. So it must have killed them off, it's back up and hopefully stable for now. But it's just not my luck. Sad

Hmm. Wonder what changed? I mean your using aragonite right? That should have been plenty to keep it buffered.

Haha nice, yeah that would be nice. But...i don't control the budget for this thing. Anyways using the pH up stuff should work as long as we monitor it. Pics coming soon.
