Bet every fish is quality for you after your WS trauma pal
Can you tell mate lol. I've now got to decide 1 more or is that it? Sorely tempted by a £60 purple tang but it might be pushing it as the tanks now got the sailfin, scopas, kole tang, 2 clarkii clowns and a scotter blenny
Cheap that for a purple. Favourite fish in my tank I know that. Make sure you have swimming room though buddy.
£60? get me one
I'm actually considering removing some of my lr from the dt as the sump chamber is full of it. Took a few smaller pieces out yesterday which opened up a bit more swimming room. Annnnnnnd what with thinking about setting up the bioreef LED tank, I could put some of the LR in it, just need to get it past the boss first lol
I'm assuming they will be pretty young/small but that's the price on wibsey marines website mate, they order in special and qt for a couple of weeks before sending or letting you collect
lol yes i ordered one when they were first advertised. £28 ;-)
I met the guy the other week. No QT though pal. He holds the fish for a few days and thats it. I did ask when i was there with Craig [MENTION=22079]Heisenberg[/MENTION] he has several tanks in the back of his garage. I waited 6 weeks for my fish and got 2 out of the 7 i ordered. The rest are still on order now 10 weeks on so tbh if there not in stock i wouldnt hold my breath.
Good to know mate thanks, the prices are bloody good, maybe this is why. I'll prob give them a rethink now
if you can get the fish (big if) and you can QT it great but tbh a fish thats just gone round the globe dropped in a tank for 2 or 3 days then bagged and shipped to your door is a liable heart ache waiting to happen. If you want a fish you need to go see it in perfect health, feeding and then make a decision.
Its the price mate ain't it, being a tight Scottish git, shop price is £125 and online is £60, I'm automatically drawn to the cheaper option, its in my DNA to be a cheapo hahahaha
keep an eye on the website the prices continue to rise. The purples were £28 10 weeks ago. None have arrived and i doubt any will at £60. Theres a reason they cost £120 in the shops. If somethings to good to be true it probably is!
Well some more new frags today to see how they get on in me wee tank
Did a rescape yesterday. Took out a lot of live rock to open up the swimming space for the tangs.
Glued down my new plating monti and digi frags.
I'm bored and there is dosh burning a hole in my pocket.
Could be doing with filling out with more corals in the aquaroche....but which corals, decisions decisions
Get some LPS pal! A torch or hammer or summat. They add great movement and are pretty easy to keep.
I also need something that's good in low flow and lowlight any ideas mate
Hahah low flow low light?! You've got sps frags in there haven't you?! I wouldn't have thought they'd do so well under those conditions. Can you not get some more movement in there?
Only at the sides mate where the drop off is, sides of the tank are a bit bareish for my liking. Maybe I should just upgrade to a big mofo deep tank, I think its the only way I'll be happy hahaha
You can have a torch etc round the edges pal. Shouts still be flow there really. The LPS is the normal next step I think. It certainly was for me
