New fish, dead fish and the RKE!!!

Well, I have been very busy for the last couple of weeks.  I just changed jobs and that is always a very busy and stressful time.  But, it didn't stop me from making some significant changes in the fish population, mostly because of my sohal tang. 

Well, after he killed off my 6-line wrasse, a royal gramma, a blue/green chromis and a strawberry dottyback (he stressed them to death), he had to go.  So, I spent 2 hours getting him out of the tank and sold him to a fellow reefer.

Then came the task of repopulating my tank.  Here is what I have added in the last few weeks along with the losses I have since suffered:

  • 1 male anthias and 2 female anthias (1 female dead)
  • 1 medium blue tang
  • 1 royal gramma
  • 1 purple pseudochromis
  • 1 scott's fairy wrasse (completely disappeared, believe he is dead)
  • 8 (yes, 8) bangai cardinals in 3 separate purchases form different stores (3 remain)

I hate fish.  I am not sure what is causing their deaths.  Well, the cardinals are hiding out and afraid to jump in the mix to eat.  But, otherwise, I have no idea...

For a while I thought I might have a predator in there, but I keep looking at all hours (even late at night with a flashlight) and I have yet to find anything.

Oh well, the coral are doing well and the remaining fish look good.

Pictures later.
