    As I say fish don't read the books! LOL These are only suggestions from what Fern and I have heard and read about over the years, Quite often with 3 clowns one gets killed but like I said fish don't read. Anythings possible.

    Its the maroon clown that will probably get nasty, they tend to have a bad temperament.

    I took all the oddessa barbs out of the 75 and man is the tank boring now lol. Also did a water change and tested everything in all the tanks the 29 and 20 are fine and the 75 has 6.4 ph which I can live with and it's a lot better then 6 or lower.

    Took out all my plants from the 75 cleaned everything and got rid of a bunch of extra and dead plants I didn't know I had (filled a 20 gall bin half full of just plants lol) got everything put back together and this morning couldn't figure out why Latte was colorless and breathing heavy and one of the rams were at the top gulping air.

    Dummy me realized the filter output was under the water not causing enough water agitation for air. Got that fixed and Latte has his color back and everyone is breathing a ton easier. Even the 3 fry are swimming around again instead of hanging at the surface. They are 3 weeks old today and I managed not to kill them yesterday lol.

    I just checked out the temp container I had set up for my fry and new batch of eggs when I did the WC in the 75. Well I moved the fry back to the 75 after the WC and left the eggs in the container and I thought they all had fungused well I was wrong and I got wrigglers!!! So now cleaning up that tank and moving stuff around.

    Still haven't managed to get all the fish in from the ponds LMAO happens every fall but this year I'm totally a couple weeks behind. Not sure I'm ready to face the PO'd angels & discus when they have to come in, selling a couple tank fulls of guppy youngsters LOL just easier and I need those tanks for some of the holding females, when I get done with these projects will be moving the desk to Tbones room so that's going to make room for the rack with the double 55's which one of them will be divided to house a pairs of angels. The other will house the Aceis more than likely, then one of the other 55's is loosing the gravel to go sand for the mchengas since they will have their own tank no more having to share, okay rambling but theirs some highlights

    Well I haven't posted in forever and a day now, so here's the update: finally got all the fish moved indoors from the ponds, keeping a young krib in each of the guppy tanks isn't helping LOL, the fulus are growing like lil weeds, a few angel fry coming up from Betty & Barney, sold some more of the angels so other than fry there are a whopping 7 adults & 2 that came in from the pond the others that were out there sold almost as fast as I fished them out, hoping the curviceps spawn again soon getting low on youngsters, the young male chocolate is almost big enough to move in with Missy, swapping a few more fish around today to make room for holding females, still don't know who the mystery girl (definitely Victorian) in the 75g is LOL but she's gotten huge, still haven't found a home for the sevs or since they're still here found them a man.

    Finally got the puter issues fixed, my phone is still dead hoping to have one next week that's functional the current one well SUCKS keep it charged but doesn't mean I get calls or texts feeling a bit disassociated there, my health was not on the upside do to the never ending residuals from the car wreck almost 3 years ago now, started volunteering evenings to help some friends out since a real job is out of the question on the bad days. okay think that's some of the highlights / catch up.

    So I moved the mushroom rock out of the 55g and over to the 125g, the lights were too much I think, moved some rock from the 125g to the 55g to fill the gap and rearranged some corals. I also fragged off a bit of radioactive dragons eye zoa, hopefully it does well.
