    Hi. So I have a 35 gallon tank that we've had set up for close to 30 months now. We've had a coral beauty angel fish in our tank now for some time (maybe 8 months) and added it with a few other fish we had, a clown, dottyback, royal gramma, and a neon goby that were already living in the...

    Okay so I went and bought a Sixline Wrasse today from Gerbers. Healthy fish, brought it home, and it acclimated rather well it seems. It pecked around rocks, explored the tank, etc. Well, it vanished. It flat out disappeared. I searched all that could be searched. I lifted some rocks(though...

    For the second time I'm dealing with a missing fish. First it was a small Fire Goby missing for a week. Now it's a Carpenter's Flashing wrasse. Day one in the tank he was sociable and eating. Then gone for 2 days (out of sight). Then he was back, sociable, eating well for a day again. Now...

    I'm new to saltwater tanks and new to the forum. So far this forum has provided me with a lot of info that I believe have helped me start a solid first saltwater tank. I may have made a noob mistake though. I moved around my live rock, but in the process I seemed to have lost the 1 damsel I had...

    I had my red coris wrasse for over a year and then about 2 months ago he disappeared. After extensively looking for him I had started to think he had to have passed even though I never found his body. This morning I woke up and saw his red face poke up from the sand and then bury himself back...

    I just got home from work today and I realize one of my perculas are missing! I have had several fish come up missing here lately. I put a pencil sized snowflake eal in and he dissappeared. I saw him the first two nights then not again. No trace of him getting out, not in overflow, and I can't...

    I had a group of about 7 small blue/green chromis. Over several weeks, I was down to 2 fish or so I thought. Most just died and ended up as lunch for my nassarius snails. Last week I was cleaning out the corner overflow section of my tank. I scrape the sides of the overflow and chum the...

    So, I got a yellow watchman goby(YWG) back in January as a Xmas present from my brother. I bought a Tiger pistol shrimp and they hit it off instantly. The two started spending a lot of time in the burrow that they excavated under my LR. For about a month things were going well. Eventually I...

    :help: Ok, so I added one of my favorite fish (a yellow watchman goby) a week ago into my nano setup. (29 biocube). The first night he was out in the open checking things out. After that I havnt seen him at all. I have a fish saver cover over the back to block the sump so I know he didnt jump. I...

    So I was cleaning out my filter and tank when halfway through I realised that my wrasse was missing. ( He was there this morning for sure ) I took the lid off, unplugged the filter and began to clean it as usual. I went to clean the tank and I took all but one of the rocks out, so that the fish...

    A few weeks ago my rather cleaner wrasse vanished. I bought another one, haven't even got the bill for it yet, and it now has vanished too, and now I see one of my green chromis is also missing. Since my water quality is absolutely perfect, I keep looking at the rather large LTA yjat my clown...

    I have been a fan of this website for awhile now but this is my first question and I am really just confused. I have had my saltwater tanks setup for a little over a month. The tank "did" include 2 yellow tail damsels, a yellow tang, a dragon goby, and a black and white Ocellaris Clown fish...
