Darn right you take it all back!! Aren't I amazing tho? And in the process I discovered just exactly how many camera's my husband really has..... hmmmm... what? this ole thing? That is my tactic. I thought I had the addiction. (did you watch my thread/video of Dillon and his rubber donkey?)

Of course I did! Dillon is adorable!! Way cuter than your Gobies.

Hi guys. Well I only had them about a month. It was really tricky to feed them. I was told to give them Blood worms and they are very slow to eat. So I would try to squirt some down into the bottom/back area of the tank for the 4 of them and then feed the gang up top hoping that the Gobies would get enough. I don't think the did cause they just didn't last. They were very young and came that colour. Sorry I can't shed any light on it all.

Two of my BBS are bright an one is dull. I've had them for 5 months and although they've grown, their color is the same. They're healthy little guys. They're a little tough to feed when you have vivacious top feeders - I have praecox rainbows and they're crazy fish! So when I feed I start with the praecox in mind, but then I sporatically put food right at the filter outflow. This forces the food to the bottom and then it naturally floats along the top of the substrate. The BBS know the feeding schedule now, so they set themselves up to catch the pieces floating by. They love Brine Shrimp. Hope this helps!
