movement




Sure enough this anemone is moving everywhere. when I first put it in the tank, it was on the left side in front of the rock work. (around 4:00pm)
This picture was taken at 10:00pm last night and it moved to the upper right in front of my powerhead.

More movement



This picture was taken at 10:00am this morning, once again you can see the green bubble anemone moved all the way across the tank to the left side. I hope this anemone finds a home soon because I heard it will sting my coral and I would not like that. As much as I want the anemone to stop moving I do not like the placement of the anemone for viewing haha.

Clown fish

I came home tonight to find my anemone looking like it is going to move again. Hopefully nothing bad happens while sleeping. one good thing that made me happy was I also came home to my clownfish swimming through my anemone and then it was also just chilling in it.

Water change help

So I am going to start 5 gallon water changes every other week starting tomorrow. I bought pre mix salt water from LFS and it has sat in a jug for 4 weeks now. with that being said, do I need to heat and circulate that 5 gallon before I put it in the tank?

Anemone

Woke up this morning to find that my green bubble anemone moved again It is now in the middle of my tank below my arch. I hope this thing splits soon because it is huge and kind of looks obnoxious in my tank.

Water change help

I had mentioned this last night, I know it is basically the same thing but instead of doing a five gallon change once every two weeks, I am going to do a 2.5 gallon water change every Monday. Ill post tonight to update how everything went.

I would do that the night before the WC just to be on safe side.

update

water change went ok haha, like I said I'm new to everything and the first thing I did was suck a bunch of sand into the siphon. it was a rough start. After I removed the 2.5 gallons I took the time to clean inside the glass a little bit. I took apart and replaced my carbon in my media reactor. After I was done with the change the water was murky but I woke up to a nice clean and clear tank this morning! I think I will be buying new filter socks soon they are pretty dirty.

fish death



Well I walked into my room tonight at 2:30am and found my clownfish laying on my carpet, by the time I got to my clownfish it was already shriveled and hard. This will be my first fish death. I am bummed out about the death. This clownfish was my first cool fish and I hand picked him out of a display tank so I am pretty bummed. I thought giving him a little memorial would be nice.
RIP bud, you will forever be my first cool fish.

Have you tested the water after the change? Maybe the salinity... Keep an eye on it and look for any changes of your coral and the anem.

It may not look great, but I always think it's important to have a screen of some sort on top if you have fish.

Water

Got a full test done by Petco today. All levels were great! My salinity was at 1.023 which I thought was weird. So the next time my water gets low I am going to top off with salt water instead of RO water.

Fish



I was pretty bummed last night about my first clown fish carpet surfing, then this morning I woke up to an email from LFS stating they just got in black clownfish. Sure enough I ended up at the store and picked one up to replace my first clownfish.

Week five notes

Things have been going pretty smooth. I am almost scared that things are going too smooth haha. I finally love being able to go to the LFS and actually getting new stuff. As much as I want to buy new coral, I need to make some equipment upgrades to my tank. Currently I want to get the spinstream heads for my return pump. I am going to get the upgraded caddy's for the my tank for filtration. I also got a protein skimmer from my uncle that needs a new motor so I need to purchase that as well. Hopefully things continue to run smooth. Please keep up with questions and comments! thanks guys!

Coral



Today my torch hammer opened up the most I have seen it open. This is a great picture of it fully open and also featuring my cleaner shrimp.

2nd fish death

Well I was driving to Cleveland today with my father for Father's Day and my mom called me and my 2nd clown fish died. I look at it before I left and it was fine and 45 minutes later it was dead. I can only say so much because I'm wasn't there but my sister said there the fish was really pale and losing color. I'll post some pictures but I'm really confused on what happened. This has been really discouraging with two fish dying in a matter of one week. Please post your thoughts... trying to figure out what made him die.
