Didn't go exactly as planned.... HAHA

Post by matt_longview on Fri 14 Oct 2011, 2:38 pm

So my Friday was kinda supposed to go like this...

1. Get in pistol/goby pair. Acclimate them, put them into the tank and watch as they pair up inside of 5 minutes.

2. Get anemone crab. Acclimate it, put it into the tank and watch as it pairs with my mini maxi inside of 5 minutes.

3. Get sand cleaners (10 nass snails, 2 red banded trecks & 1 yellow cuc) acclimated and in the tank.

Good news. #3 went perfectly. They're all acclimated; they're all in.

#2... well... got the crab acclimated, put it in right by the maxi mini... within 5 minutes the two are together, but the maxi mini has grabbed onto the crab's leg. 5 minutes later it's slowly wrapping it up. 5 minutes later I can't see the crab and the maxi mini has pulled itself nearly entirely under the rock. May have just bought a nice meal...

#1... pistol didn't take too kindly to the shipping. Didn't have to pay for it because it doesn't look like it's going to make it. The fish is GORGEOUS... but is very good at hiding! lol.

Thus far... pretty humorous day. You really never know what's going to happen with these things!

Ordered through Jason. :-)

I'll try to order another Pistol next week. We didn't have to pay for the barely alive one.
