    Ohhhhh... No I don't think it will make much of a difference especially if you rinse the shrimp off a little before going into the QT with the fish.

    LOL!! No, I haven't started a new build thread for the new tank yet. Lazy I guess. I figure I'll start that one when I'm able to get water into the tank. That way I can put all the slow stuff up all at once.

    Hmm... not sure I would use the term lazy when it comes to you. More likely that you are neglecting your own thread because you are too busy helping in everyone elses!

    Maybe. I also already have a captive audience here. I might get it started when the tank comes in. We'll actually start doing to real work at that point so it might be worth a new thread. I gotta go off to work now and convince the service manager to do a free delivery for me. ;)

    When switching over, I'd take a small cup of the destination water and pour it over him (maybe he's in a net or something) then put him in the destination tank.

    Well, as this thread comes to a close I suppose it would be best to update it a few more times before the tank comes down. I'll try to add plenty of pictures and videos before the end. I don't think I'm going to manage to get the big tank up and running before december, so there's still some time left. Stay tuned for pictures and a video!

    You'll hear my son in the background and me responding. He's not feeling good today. :( Stay tuned to the end of the video and you'll see my Fire Shrimp cleaning the Eel. Never seen that before!!

    Proof that there are actually fish in this tank!! I had to stand back pretty far to get the picture without them running to hide. lol

    The Purple tang. And while I probably shouldn't have favorites, he's it. For some reason the Black Cap Basslet and the Leopard wrasse were hiding so I didn't get much of them. You can see the Black Cap in the FTS though. Look under the Toadstools.
    This one is pretty blurry.... I was standing back and zooming in. Sorry

    Considering he mostly wastes his nori every day and lets it float around the tank I'm pretty surprised about his heft. lol I put it in there and he seems to just rip pieces off and toss it aside. I know he's getting some of it or else he wouldn't be so big.

    Oh yeah! King of the tank for sure. He's not going to know what to do with all the room he's going to get in the big tank. Probably just get fatter

    Wow..loved the eel... iv read that they are like dogs and love their owners and they allow to touch them and play with them.

    id love to keep a predator only tank, just tht im a vegetarian, so cant keep large frozen fishes at home, however i somehow manage to keep frozen mysis, cyclops, rotifers and lobster eggs... lol. As my parents will kick me out of the house..lol. still plannin to keep a fuzzy dwarf lion though as a fellow hobbyist is a fisherman and has told me tht he wud get live fishes for me to feed the lion.. ;)
