I'm not even going to look at any pet store till I have my tank and sump all up and running so I can leave the pet store with one.

I'm more so hoping I'll be able to rescue rather than buy one since all my fish I own are rescues and I kinda like the feeling you get from giving them a good home.

Does Paddy try to eat those neons(?) you have in there? I just put a shoal of 20 white clouds in with Bubbles hoping they were too small for him to see as food. It has been a day and a half and he hasn't managed to catch one. When he lunges at them they school up and he gets confused and stops chasing. I am hoping they will eat all the crumbs he leaves behind.

I took out one of my big pieces of driftwood to give Homer more swimming room. Generally fahakas will not eat feeders because they are not piscavores. Also it bothers me when I hear a store has a bunch of babies in a tank for sale. Fahakas do not like each other at all. Homer is missing three quaters of his top fin from being kept in a tank with others at the lfs. Nevermind the fact that most people who walk into an lfs have no clue what to do with a fahaka.

Oh and Ben just looked at your signature. You will have better luck breeding your crays in a tank bigger than a 10g. I used to use a 20g with moderate success, now I got them all in a 55g and prob have close to 50 or so plus babies. What kind of crays you breeding?

Are you freezing them first? If not your running a risk of bringing parasites into your tank.

Aside from that I was wondering if a "red tide" would affect the fish.
