    Hi Hot Sauce, thanks, I have had only one gone missing in nearly a year, currently there are 4x Fire gobies, 2x Flame Gobies, yellow tang,powder blue, regal,nasso,royal gramma,six line wrasse,large jaw fish,pair of Harlequin shrimps,pair of blood shrimps, cleaner shrimp.
    The flame gobies seem more aggressive and do chase the fire gobies at times. The gramma has his fair share when things heat up.

    Just to put you guys in the picture, I started marines about 4 years ago, bought a fairly large freshwater corner unit(DT+ sump=1500l) and converted it to marine. Wasted lots of money through trial and error but after 6 months things started to settle and not die anymore, helps if you do some research beforehand and at least have some sort of an idea regarding water parameters etc, I found the LFS assumes you know everything when you purchase all the hardware to set up a tank. Due to work keeping me away from home at least 4 months in the year, I had to shut it down due to the maintenance that was a bit much for the wife to handle, then decided to get two smaller units, you guys know how it goes, if I get one,the boss must get one two, so about 2 years ago I sold the large tank and bought the Redsea250(his) and Redsea130(hers), much less maintenance and honestly, trouble free units so far.

    Why these came out sideways I don't know, sorry guys! This is my wife's pony, I'm desperately looking for a male and another pair to introduce to the tank, if anybody knows of someone who is breeding or has any, pls let me know, I already tried SeaHorse but have not yet received feedback.
