I went to the good LFS, the owner was there (he works w/my hubby at his main job) he told me where I got the Basslet it was a good possibiliy they were caught near Singapore and cyanide may have been involved. :/
Onefish - I used the drip method. I do have a quarantine tank but we are having phosphate problems with it... a black algae took over and we are trying to get rid of it. It killed my domino damsel, a turbo snail, and a crab. (all 3 of them got in it) and no we are not having those issues in the big tank. I've even had the LFS double-check my tests and so far I'm 100% right on with them. Everything that needs to be 0 is 0, ph is 8.2. Calcium test was 11 i think... I haven't been keeping track of that test since we are putting off preparing for corals till we get a new light fixture.
I got a "Rusty Angelfish" (Centropyge ferrugata) today to replace it. He is doing super and didn't freak out like the basslet did. He has been at the LFS for 2 mos and the owner said he was a good eater.
