whew, but not to take credit from pasfur i suggested running carbon back on page 1.
hope you can catch this sucker with the live rock work without stressing him to much.
unless he is still in QT.
Lol, after reading my post again, I can see where it sounded that way, sorry.
I just got off the phone with my LFS and the guy there (Bill) has always been a treasured resource to me. I knew right away that he was not the one who sold my husband the soapfish the other night, because he definitely would have made sure he was aware of the risks, I'm sure. Anywho, when I talked to him about my situation he said, that in the twenty years he has had his business he has never seen any knid of trouble with these fish. He said while they can secrete toxins when provoked, it would take a predator fish really making him feel very threatened. He told me that he felt very confident that this fish would do fine in my tank with the fish I have, especially since I would be upgrading soon, because he is so small now, that in a 55 gallon tank it would not be a high risk.
I really have always trusted Bill, but never had to trust him with the survival of my entire tank. So now I do feel somewhat better but still very guarded. I will definitely add extra carbon and I guess this will light my fire about getting the larger tank started sooner.
Oh and onefish2fish thanks for the link about understanding sumps! Hands down the best and most helpful article I have read about sumps. He really breaks it down so its very easy to understand.
