    Lighting (35 Gallon)

    So to answer the question of what kind of light do i have the answer is I don't know but I've attached a photo of the two modes my light has perhaps someone might be able to tell me the guy at the stor didn't specificallysay. Also my pink bubble tip anemone seems to wilt at night when the lights go off can anyone tell me if that's normal? It comes back to life in the morning.

    Fish Compatibility (Royal Gramma & Azure Damsel)

    Update: The Azure damsel is no longer trying to viciously kill the Royal Gramma. Every now and again the damsel will dart towards the others in the tank but the psychopathic aggression i observed when introducing the Royal Gramma is no longer there. The Gramma has found tinny holes in the rock where she calls home and is safely protected from attacks. The clowns are bigger then the damsel and perhaps adds to the overall stability within the community. While im no fish behaviorist I could swear that sometimes the clowns protect the Gramma from the damsels aggression by blocking off the swimming path of the damsel.
  4. Introduced an Azure Damsel to my Tank last week. Today i introduced the Royal Gramma. As soon as i released the Gramma into the tank the Damsel started to attack the Gramma. I now have the Gramma in a plastic bag i poked holes in to keep the damsel from killing the Gramma. Can these two fish get along? Will they always want to attack each other? As the Damsel Grows will it also begin to harass my clowns? As of now im going to return the damsel to the store if no one can suggest methods of getting these two fish to get along on Monday as it seems to be the more aggressive of the two. Only other fish i will introduce to the tank Will be the 6 line wrasse.

    Feeding Fish While absent, How?

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. I'm gonna look into the feeder if its cost effective ill do it. As far as evaporation goes ill make sure to top up some water as a precaution but thankfully i don't get to much evaporation over the course of 3 days. Thanks again,

    Skunk shrimp Vomited then died later same night.

    Ya, i don't know guys. Im no zoologist but what i saw was a bunch of white stuff come out of his mouth kinda like he was puking. Next thing you know he dead later that night. He was pretty big though so maybe it was just old age but that might not explain the vomiting. Iv had the tank with fish in it for 9 months now after the first 3 water prepping months. I change water routinely once every two weeks as per my 30 gallon tank. I haven't checked salinity yet.... Im gonna go do that now lol. ..
  11. As the title of the post reads... My Skunk shrimp vomited then died later same day. Iv never seen a shrimp vomit before, is that the way they normally die? Im thinking i might not get another skunk seeing as how the clown fish now swim around the rocks where the shrimp use to be. Maybe they didn't like each other...

    Is my fish sick? (Inverted swimming)

    20 Gallon tank, 5 Gallon bucket changes every two weeks. The tank has been set up for about 3 months, iv had clowns for about 2 months now.
  13. One of my two clownfish is always facing up. He spends a lot of his time pressed up against the thermometer. Is this normal or is the fish sick?

    seizure like behavior (clown fish)

    Ya the guys at the store said that the water changes is one of those things you cant do enough of so I figure instead of getting all OCD about weather it should be 15%, 20% weekly or bi-weekly i figure a buckets worth is good enough every two weeks and everything seems to be going "swimmingly" lol... if you will.
