    So a few months ago, while I was on vacation, I did lose my coral beauty, chromis, and lawnmower blenny.

    Luckily, Oceancrazy had fish for adoption! All it cost me was 1/4 tank of gas :D I got his yellow tang, lawnmower blenny, and coral beauty. He had a nice tank, and his fish looked super healthy.

    Here are some awesome blurry pics :D

    Here they are warming up in my sump, waiting for their drip lines:

    The only decent shot I could get of the CB:

    Still in drip acclimation (had to run to the store to get more airline tubing, so they just sat in the sump in their bags. I tossed in some food (one piece of mysis at a time) and they ate. So they're definitely healthy. Can't wait to introduce them!

    Yeah the tang was definitely hounding after the foxface. Whether trying to dominate him, or trying to cozy up to him, I don't know yet. But either way, he better cut it out or Buster's going to jab him LOL He keeps puffing his spines when the tang sneaks up on him.

    Naturally, I would spring a leak. :grumble: In my left overflow, there is a leak in the return bulkhead. Slow drip drip drip.

    I think crisis averted...I just tightened the bulkhead LOL Keeping a watch on it. I don't know how it came loose, unless it's just an "over time" sort of thing.
