    *The thing about the brain. The guy in Nashville sold it to me cheap because it wasn't doing too hot and he couldn't devote the time to spot feed it. He told me if the brain does not recover and dies, that he will refund the money I paid for it or give me the amount I paid for it in corals or fish.

    I was feeding small amounts everyday, but i'm going to cut back to every other day. I have been doing 10% water changes every other day but I think I'm going to do a 30% change tonight or tomorrow. Had to put the emerald crab in crab jail because I think he tried to take a chunk out of my clown, so he's going back to the lfs tomorrow. I had to take the brain out, It was sick when I bought it and tried to give it a chance but the tissue kept receding. I was advised to take it out so it didn't decay in the tank.

    Thank you! If you go onto my tank thread, you can see the damage he did to my poor clown. The crab is going back to the store tomorrow and hopefully I will get some amazing corals to add. Idk if I'm going to get my firefish tomorrow seeing as I have a small ammonia spike. It's only .1 and that was before I did a 30% water change.

    That was my original idea but I took the barnacle out. I may put it back. My goby likes to hid back there so I took it out so I could keep an eye on him. I need to brainstorm and figure out where a good place for it would be.

    My Midas Blenny has taken up residence in my barnacle rock. It's super cute to watch her dart in there when the lights go off. It scares her every day! The tank is looking good!

    My latest critters.

    Peppermint shrimp
    [​IMG]
    Strawberry shortcake goni
    [​IMG]
    Highlighter Lemon favia
    [​IMG]
    Blasto
    [​IMG]

    And no my favia is not sick! I spoke with my supplier and he gets these frags from a guy that has been in the business for years. He has a huge favia that he frags these from and they do very well if taken care of properly. It will color up to have more green in it as it gets older. He told me that if I am at all unhappy with it or think it is going to die, I can bring it back.
