    The good thing about all of this is you treated immediately and everyone survived. They're all eating as well, so that's a good sign.

    The 40 is looking good but keeping working your husband so you can get a bigger tank, lol. It's always better to get a bigger tank for saltwater. Then you aren't limited as much.
    Think with logic and rationality more than emotion. Act with moderation and consideration. Contemplate ideals and realistic goals and weigh out possibilities and options. Temper not with personal delusions or false hope but learn to accept and move on.

    Yup! Sure can, thatís how I killed three of the frags I picked up in Orlando. Hard lesson learned from a stupid mistake. I put my little frag rack and left it to high in my tank. Light bleached all of them in a day.

    1k each my way.

    So I am running cheap and easy zetlight 1202a Wi-Fi 16w but they punch above their weight that's for sure.

    Thank you. I think I may have him talked into letting me upgrade the 40B to a 65. He is not on board with me having a drilled tank or a sump though. I have a few months to wear him down on that, but I may have to compromise and be happy to at least have a bigger tank.

    Oh no! That's too bad about the frags. I'm hoping the addition of the T8s will kill the red bubble algae that's been popping up under the FW light I had been using. I'm also hoping that it will increase the tiny amount of coralline algae that's starting to grow in a few places.

    Yellow / lemon damsel. I love them. I want one. Maybe when I get the larger tank (65g). They are supposedly less aggressive than other damsels. I am concerned that it may see my yellow clown goby as a threat since they are basically the same color.
    Can fish see color? Or do they recognize conspecifics by body shape?

    There are many articles out there that discuss about this subject, you can probably search for them if you did a Google search. Damsels specifically are mean and nasty once they get to an adult stage. What they see as competition for food, they will challenge and harass. They are smart enough to know what is a natural predator though and steer clear of those guys. Even with my first salt water tank, the damsel grew to be about 4 inches and was a total menace. From then on, I only keep them with large aggressive fishes or as a food source for predators. I've also heard plenty of folks who described their sweet little damsel turned out to be devil's incarnate by the time it grew older. This is most likely because of the confine of a small tank. Even when I went scuba diving in the wild, these guys are pretty bold and can hold their own against bigger fishes. I see them slapping their tail at eels, angels, parrotfish, etc. on numerous dives.

    There are more mellow genus out there, but as with all fishes, there can be exceptions.

    the biggest caution against the damsel is that you already have clowns. Once one of them transitions into a female you’ll have a little devil on your hands. My female clown will take on anything in the tank. It’s her tank and she knows it. I love her and I always have pep talks with new fish before they go in. Pep talks are all about dealing with her.

    Thank you. I'll look for those articles! I want everyone to play nice in my tank. At least as much as possible.
