Last clown got his head stuck in the return pump output (like the last). Ordered some new loc-line and made another decent purchase from R2G.com.

Tomini is very skittish for the last few days and may have some spots on him (eek). Keeping a very close eye on him. Clown Goby is MIA as well in such a large tank for him. Hopefully he will show himself again soon.

Also, have a new doser now. Trying to figure out the best way to mount it in my limited sump space.

    Be careful ordering from them... They have developed a terrible rep lately, had a bad experience myself with them.

    Really? I have had decent results with them the few times I have ordered. Any specific reasons/reviews you can share? Recommendations for similarly priced frags/deals?

    I had good luck up until my fourth order with them and they sent half my order, and half of that was DOA. They only refunded me half what they should have, then wanted to charge me to ship the remainder of my order... I told them to cancel it (before they even sent the first half) took three months to get the rest of my refund. Only good thing to come from the order was the tiger conch and Algae blenny I got... I will only order from blue zoo or live aquaria now... read reviews and really dig deep... those two have almost zero bad reviews, reefs2go has more than 80-90% negative reviews....

    Good to know Lee. I have had pretty decent luck with them for the last few orders. Just went with World Wide Corals with their live sale and an acro arrived nearly completely dead so will be interesting to see how they handle the issue. Will have to check out blue zoo though as well. Thanks

    live aquaria was decent with me regarding the few orders I placed with them... I've been reluctant to order online lately. Prefer to shop locall if I can or deal with fellow hobbyists

Dottyback and 6-line not really getting along. Surprisingly (to me) the dottyback seems to be getting the upper hand on the more established 6-line. Will see how things go over the next few days, might rescape and see if it helps.
