    My aquarium

    Well first off I am a new member here, and I am from Ottawa. I have a 29 gallon aquarium, with 30 lbs of live rock, a Coralife super skimmer 65, fluval 303, Koralia 2, and a Coralia nano, Coralife 65 watt compact fluorescent light fixture with a 50/50 bulb in it. Currently in the tank I have a mated pair of clowns, 1 yellow tail damsel, 1 yellow clown goby, and a few hermits and snails. Here are some pictures of my tank

    looking good, love the goby sitting on his perch :b2:



    how long has the system been set up?? you should probably try and remove the leafy green algae from the LR, with no real veggie fish to control it's growth it may become a problem.

    Ya that's where my goby always sits, he's not doing so well right now, since I got the clown fish he doesn't feel like competing for food with them so he's pale and stressed. Going to try target feeding him tomorrow morning. The tank has been up for about 6 months or so. Ya that leafy green stuff has grown like crazy, no matter how much I pull out it grows back. Do you have any recommendations on a small fish that might eat this stuff up?

    i can't think of any small herbivores ( 29G ) that would take care of that.

    how did the target feeding go??

    what food are you offering??

    Target feeding worked a bit but he still won't eat anything but brine shrimp. I feed the rest of my fish a mix of mysis shrimp, flake food, some soft sinking pellets, and occasionally brine. Since my goby won't eat anything but the brine I've been soaking the brine shrimp in Kent vitamin liquid before feeding, to try and get some nutrients to the goby.

    you should think about changing your food somewhat.
    the sinking pellets and flake foods ( most brands ) are like McDonalds.. junk food. the brine shrimp contains very little nutrients for the fish.

    I suggest you get mysis/mysid shrimps, cyclopeese and some nori or fresh veggies like broccoli.
    or for a more complete solution, check out my recipes in the diy section.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.
