    Your set up looks really good and that clown fish you want it's beautiful.

    Get ready for the prices of those clowns you want. Cheapest you'll find either (for a pair) is probably like 150 ish lol

    well, went by live tanks on wednesday and got a killer deal on some banggai cardinal so i picked up 3 to hopefully make a pair. also grabbed a sweet zoa. now i need a macro lens for the camera. i finally got around to doing a water change cause the tank was a lil cloudy and everything is looking really good. think i'm going to grab a few sps and see how they do this week. heres some pics. and thanks again for the awesome deal @live tanks.

    Which wholesaler down there went public? And, do they ship?
    I'm always looking out for new wholesalers to use :).

    Proaquatix wants too much money for their clowns. You're better off looking for a local breeder lol. You can usually get them fairly cheap :p

    I believe they'll ship out. I've got a friend who knows the owner of proaquatix who can get just about any pair clowns for $90. Snowflakes, blacker ice, platinum, and etc. it's great knowing people who buy really nice stuff. Lol

    well, now for some bad news. all three cardinals are dead. got off work and only saw 2 cardinals. figured the other 2 paired up and killed the other one and find him under the rocks. couple hours later i see another clown swimming funny and kinda of bopping for air at the top of the tank and knew he wasn't going to last the night and sure enough he was gone in 3 hours stuck to the powerhead. turned the mp40 down to barely nothing figure the flow was to strong. the third one find a spot and was swimming there until i got off work the next morning. find him in the same spot the 1 one was at. basically almost gave up and posted everything for sale. lucky for me nope really showed any interested in anything. decided to keep it for now.

    I hope you can find the reason soon, and you can add some new fish to it. Do you think that is maybe because of something the rocks are releasing into the tank?

    i don't think it cause the cardinals death.i'm thinking it was the amount of flow in the tank that casue it cause the coral are all doing good. and i know a few other members on here having cloudy tanks and fighting with it for months. and its something to do with the cycle i believe.

    So it was the flow then. Too strong for them I guess.

    thanks. i guess we're both in the same boat. i think yours is a lot worse (sorry). i sold the mp40 yesterday and stuck a hydor k1400 in there for now. getting that nano tank tomorrow. can't wait for that.
