Fish

anybody ever kept or have experience with a tailspot blenny or a flametail blenny. I have heard these are great nano fish and I wouldn't mind having one of these in my tank!

I saw one a few times at my LFS and it's the same one. Every time I go I see him perched on the same rock almost as he stares at me walking by. They look cool.

as much as I love my tank,I need some cooler colors. thinking about a red mushroom and then that blenny would add a cool color to the tank.

I have a flametail and he adds so much personality. I have porous rock in my tank and he loves to back into the tank, and I often just see his head sticking out.

DIY night




Bottom Photo: finally got my power strip mounted on to my wall!
Top Photo: for all of those following along and saw my old clownfish went carpet surfing I solved that problem. I used big wooden sticks wrapped in black duct tape.

Both of my clownfish are acting very weird tonight and are swimming very weird as well. I don't know if I am being paranoid because of the other deaths. I hope this is just me being paranoid. I hope they make it through the night.

Should probably do another 2.5 gallons tomorrow if nitrates are acting up. I did 5 on Saturday.

Clownfish made it through the night. swimming behavior this morning is normal! they seem to be very excited. They are eating as normal as well. Testing salinity on pre mixed salt water then preforming water change.

I did a 2.5 gallon water change this morning at 10am. everything went smooth. Will be going to LFS tonight to test nitrates. Clownfish are eating and seem back to normal, I think I might have been acting a tad paranoid haha. Also after a discussion with reef wreak I am going to take the coral plug off my torch and give it a super gel glue permanent position on my rock!

Reefing an ongoing paranoia... Once you think everything is good something always needs attention.

Yes it did find a spot. I feed it dried shrimp and also coral smoothie. I think I am going to pry it off his spot soon and split him. And then maybe he will find a better spot

Coral




My plan was to frag my hammer but after closer inspection, I didn't have enough "branching" to frag it. so I just cut it down and glued it to my rock work.

July 4th

I am back after a 3 day trip to my uncles in Indianapolis. He has a 75 gallon tank and it was very exciting to see what I might be into once I am older! I was lucky enough to get some frags of florida recordia mushrooms from him. Since I am back from a little vacation I will be posting daily again!
