    I made sure amonia was at a minimum. But thats all you can say is be carful of the bioload ur throwing ur tank. Not even a hey those are nice fish they have a real personality. Or i have them they are nice fish. Even a sounds like nice store but make sure you are not adding fish too fast. I am monitoring my tank every 2 days and the night before i add fish a test gets done first then a waterchange second. Thanks aquamann rally raise my spirits. I know when u post pics or threads about u getting new fish i always comment nicly saying wow nice fish never watch ur levels

    Ryan, did I miss the pictures of your Banggai? Last I remember was you were going to post pictures in 2 hours. It is hard to comment on nice fish if you don't post a picture.

    Aquaman is concerned for your fish. You have increased the bio load a lot faster than is usually recommended and I'm sure you don't want to lose your new fish due to ammonia spikes. I don't remember you posting how often you check your levels so no one here was to know.

    It looks like you got some good deals.

    I don't know about the going price of Banggai cardnalfish in your area....however at Animal Expert they charge 59$ for them. But for this shop thats not a big surprise. Everything they sell is well over the norm for Montreal Area shops

    Cool RYAN

    you got a real deal for those prices. Aquamann was just trying to help and your reply was a little hotheaded. we've never seen any pics and he jusy mentioned you just super increased you bioload. monitoring means nothing, what will you do when the ammonia does spike? do you have another tank setup? we don't know these things. you do now have 7 fish in your tank and thats an overloaded 40g tank. hope you do trade the ones you wanted to get rid of. the CORAL BEAUTY can become a holy terror along with the damsel and the clarkis and mix them all together!

    Okay sorry vivkie i had taken the pictures but they were too big to put on the site. I am shrinking them now and hopefully they will be on later this afternoon. But they will be on. Ladybug Taber is an 8 thousand people town you are not going to find it unless u have an alberta map. It is 52 kilometers east of Lethbridge and ummm 1 hour west of Medicine Hat in southern Alberta. Johnny Rock the two clark's i want to trade off or sell, the damsel same thing, and one of the banggai's is going to a fellow reefers house. I am just waiting for them to pair off. As for the other fish the clarks and the damsel waiting for a reply from anybody who wants them.
