    My New Diamond Watchman Goby

    Diamond gobies will always usually hide the first couple days. After an ordeal like that don't be surprised if he hides out for long. Sounds like a good amount of rock. These guys sift a lot of sand and usually do better in pairs. How big is the guy? How much sand do you have? Do you have any inverts in the tank?

    John is a great guy to deal with. Bought my first CUC from him 4 years ago and it was nothing but great stuff. Plan on getting another custom CUC soon!

    Acan Garden taking a hit, Help.

    A 100% water change will throw you into a mini cycle and you wont be able to keep any SPS at that point. I've seen many tanks crash after doing a 100% water change The only tank I've seen survive a 100% water change had 95% of its live stock die. Do a 20% water change and wait; these corals do not need any more sudden fluctuations in water chemistry.
  14. I've also hear about dipping in higher saline water reading 1.035 to get the crab to inch off without hurting it. The acro I got could be healthier so is it best to wait it out before I dip? I've got a tort about 10" away, whats the likelihood of these bugs transferring? I heard that trying to scoot him off the acro will result in loss of limbs. I kinda want a zero casualty situation, this will be my last option however. Thanks!
  15. Just got an acro from the LFS in a bundle deal. Didn't look close enough to spot the red bugs.. I have a nice looking acro crab hosting the Acropora. Will dipping kill the little guy? Are there any lower strength dips I could use to ensure he's okay? Thanks!
