Good evening reefers, I am back in the US and a little overwhelm by the workload. While in Japan I met with people that were in China a week earlier and then whole Coronavirus exploded. o_O

I am ok and also my colleagues, I guess TV paranoia. On the positive side, I ordered the Sicce SDC 9.0 to introduce reef crest wave simulations. I will travel to Mexico in 10 days so I will take it down with me. The new blue tang is eating like a pig and behaving.

My reef seems to be ok but I have a sad news to report, my CBB went missing 4 days ago and yesterday the NO3 landed in 20 and the PO4 in 0.5, clearly indicating he died. I am not sure what to do at this point if I should put my CBB idea to rest or if I should try it again.

Sry about your CBB my friend. A difficult fish to keep but so worth it when all goes well. My third CBB seems to be the charm for me. Luck of the draw played a huge role as he is a boss and took to the tank immediately. If I can keep one I'm sure you can as well. Maybe getting one that was quarantined and proven to be eating is the way to go albeit expensive.

Sorry for the loss. Tuff call to make on trying again.
Slowmo torch was cool.
Thank you Crabby, I am thinking about it. Difficult to watch over a sensitive fish when I am so far away all the time.

Maybe you are right Ray, maybe I need to seek a tougher fish.

I'm so sorry! :(
Thank you Katrina, I feel bad whenever I lose a fish, especially the CBB that is one of my dream fish.

Without being able to feed masstick everyday, I wouldn't have gotten one. All the stories I read about them made me very leery of getting one.
Sorry for your loss... :(

Thank you Fudsey, the tank is having live and frozen food. I guess he was too sensitive/shay.

Dang, so sorry about the CBB. Excited to see the new pump up and running, though! Hopefully that'll cheer you up a bit, at least.
Thank you pal, it happens, unfortunately.

The LFS received new fish..... and I could not resist, so now I have stripe blenny, a female red rubby dragonette, a neon dottyback and a new cleaner wrasse. They are all good looking fish.

I am going to Mexico next week and hope to have time to get some pics.

I’m not sure the cat looks too impressed in the first picture Pancho. Looks like a little,’awkward moment’ !lol
