Thanks so much. I commented back to ya. As for pictures... none right now, but there is news of my tank...

I have put 3 new fish into my tank.

A clown goby and 2 Firefish... the royal gramma that i had in the tank has been attacking the fish. Thankfully the clown goby can hide in the birdsnest i have, but the fire fish aren't as blessed. Yesterday i was awakened with a start... my royal gramma had taken a chunk out of one of my firefish and had already started on my other. The little guy's tail was ripped off. It was hard to get a pic, but i did get one. I'll post it tomorrow or on wed, but for now i'll be going to bed. The royal gramma was taken out of the tank (with several pains and an hour or so. Oh and i damaged my birdsnest) and has been sold to pet village in Duncanville for someone else to have a go with it. They are aware of it's aggression. I pray someone else doesn't have the same issues i have.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

Geez man, it sounds like you have about as good a luck as I do. Well I hope you enjoy the new fish at least. Is that an uncommon behavior for a Royal Gramma? I had intended to put one in my tank but maybe I would be better off with a pair of Clownfish instead.

Clownfish would be the better choice IMHO. Royal Gramma, though they don't start this way, when they get big, have the tendencies to get aggressive. If they are the only fish in the tank they get territorial. IF you are going to add this fish to your tank it should be the last fish in. I made the mistake, though i knew better, of thinking that because i had several other fish in the tank already, i could add 2 more safely. I have a pair of clowns, and love them.

Ok... i have some good news and some bad news... the good news is, everything is looking great in the tank. I had some issues with my alk, but that has been taken care of with a baking soda remedy... the bad news is i had to get rid of another fish. IT took a huge bite out of my Naso tang, Jehoshaphat, and has been doing so for a while...



He's gone. it's sad to see it gone, but bunny was causing just too many issues. He would also kick up a lot of sand and clog many of my pumps from time to time. I love it, but he had to go... I traded it in for some store credit at my LFS and got me a new fish... It's unnamed, but doing very well. I'll take pics possibly tomorrow or wed.

sorry for the lack of an update (and no photo), but here's something...

I've started dosing my tank (after checking parameters) for calcium and alk. They were scary low and I had been very busy with school work and trying to get my business going.

I was at:
280 Ca
Ph -.01ppm
Sg - 1.026
dkh - 4
NO3 - 10ppm

over all not terrible, but things have goten better. My skimmer cracked and have to wait for next month to replace it (not in the budget) and my nitrates haven't increased.

Ca - 320ppm
dkh - 7.

it's been a slow process in brining them up, but better safe then sorry.

Well, it goes without saying we're looking forward to pics.
Bummer on the skimmer. Curious, what kind of business??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I know! It's ok though, i needed a better one anyways. This was just motivation... you know?

I do IT, servers, networks, software and so forth, and photography.
