That's a great looking tank, wonderfull to see everything growing in for the last years!

 

When one day a tank of me only looks half as good as this one, I would be very satisfied. 😄

Thanks! Yeah it has been fun to watch. Just keep at it and one day I'm sure you'll have a tank looking way nicer than mine!

So my female clown Alice who I have had for almost 5 years hasn't eaten for 4 or 5 days. The last two she has been acting a bit odd too. First she was just swimming in the corner on the far end that she never goes on and now she's been hiding in a cave. She showed some interest in flakes and pellets but wouldn't actually eat them. She ignored the frozen last night. I've had the other clown for almost 2 years too and he's acting find as is the clown goby.

 

She kind of did this same thing when I added him (no QT) but isn't showing any physical signs of illness besides maaaybe heavier breathing. Parameters all check out fine: 79degrees, 1.026, less than 5 nitrate. Any ideas? Just a fish cold? 

 

Here is a video from the last night.

Well she still hasn't really eaten. The only thing I've seen her eat is a tiny tiny bit of flake that happens to float right by her. No interest in frozen or pellets. She just spends all of her time in hiding really and avoids me when I approach the tank. Starting to get pretty worried.

 

In other news, during my last WC I took out my return pump to clean, a cheap Rio 1400 I believe. Got it all cleaned up but couldn't get it to stop rattling or work when I put it back in. Replaced it with a spare MJ1200 I got a few months ago. It's putting out more flow than the Rio and is a good bit quieter, so I guess I have a new return now.

 

Edit* she did eat some more flakes today and showed interest but still won't leave her cave.  Almost looks like she is having trouble catching the food too. I guess I forgot that about 2 months ago she had what I would call "popeye" in one eye for about 3 days and then it was back to normal, not sure if it's all related.

Just popping in to say hello as a soon to be 29-er. I'm not sure how reefy my tank will be in the future or how long it will take, but I'm hoping to get there eventually.  Right now is going to be pretty plain FOWLR featuring Clowns (with the LR happening from scratch).

 

Sorry to see the troubles with Alice, but from going through here, your tank looks like a pretty solid setup.

Hey, welcome to the club! I look forward to seeing your tank come along, we will see how long you stay FOWLR though!😄

 

Thanks! Yeah she is going through something for sure, just still can't figure out what it is so not sure how to treat her or all three fish for that matter.

True... It's the wife I'll need to convince as I'll all for a REEF! Going to take it slow, let her enjoy her Clowns and if nothing else, I'm already plotting, er planning a possible EVO 13.5 reef setup for myself.

Well she's still hiding a lot and not really eating much. Still no physical signs of disease though. Seems as though this cave I accidentally made with my new scape is her new home as she will chase the shrimp and other clown out of it. Overall everything else is going good. My montiporas are looking extra fluffy and quickly becoming a favorite of mine.

 

Here are some bad pictures of her hiding in her cave like a troll.

Can't catch a break. Get home from work (and the LFS with a new prize) and one of my frogspawns had fallen onto my candy cane. It looks "okay" only half really got stung thankfully. I'll see how it is tomorrow and might do an iodine dip if it's not looking better.

At the LFS picked up a neon green/yellow rock nem, was yellow at the store. Crappy pic below. My little garden is coming together.
