    Very sorry to hear that Jason, the tank looks great, do you know what caused the casualties?

    Hi Guys

    My tank has been running for 3 years now & it just seems to start looking good when I either have livestock die or coral!! It is really heartbreaking when it happens as you know. I have also moved it has moved 3 times! I am still new to this so if my description is off then let me know:

    285L capacity
    1xT5
    1X150W Halide
    Custom skimmer
    Return pump?
    UV Sterilizer
    Kalk Stirer
    Auto top up
    2x Seio Circulation pumps

    Soft coral: Anenome, Frogspawn, Hammer, Flame coral, 3x clams, 2x brains, various elephant ears, kenya trees etc.

    Livestock: 2x clowns, 1x redtooth trigger, 1x picasso trigger, 1x regal tang, 1x volitans lionfish, 2x cleaner shrimps, 1x brittle starfish (monster!) & a few hermits (blue leg)

    I hope I haven't embarrassed myself :dft001:[/quote]

    Don't you worry - quite a few of us have lost some life stock in the past few weeks... Please tell me exactly what day did loose the lifestock? And exactly what you lost? I lost 13 fish in one day no corals or other inverts.... Puppy (another member) too lost about 23 fish - on the EXACT SAME DAY as me....... :(

    Day? I can't remember. They just seem to go at different times. They'll be eating and then toast the next day!

    My system seems stable enough & I drip them for at least an hour so? I m sticking to hardy fish from now on ;)

    OK - so this happened to new fish you were adding? How long did you drip/acclimatize the fish for?

    Not sure dude? I have someone who looks after the tank for me twice a month (water change, cleans the skimmer cup :whistling:

    I could never get the hang of those testing kits. The samples are very confusing (colour chart comparisons)

    Shame man -- you REALLY lost some AWESOME fish - sorry to hear this.

    Perhaps you can tell us where you bought these from? Was it all from the same LFS (local fish shop)?

    1 hour SHOULD be good enough - BUT - we have found that the longer we acclimatize the fish/inverts, the better it would be...

    Perhaps you can ask this guy/people who come and assist with your tank, what your water parameters are?

    Where are you based, if you don't mind me asking?
