    Hi

    Sad news.

    I have had success with lobster eggs cured in garlic, you may want to try that?

    Also could do the 48h Artemiss/Herbtana cocktail, I do it as a routine now when I introduce new fish, so far have had very good results. Note you will have to stop skimming for the two days.

    I decided to try defrosted brine shrimp soaked in entice. it worked! Not only that the clowm goby was hiding in the coral so that my tailspot blenny would leave him alone. at first when the clown goby came out for food he would dart out .eat a shrimp with the tailspot chasing him. after about ten or so chases the clown obviously started feeling better with food in stomach and went out and roughed up the blennie .NOW THAT WAS FUNNY!
