Some bad news. The Powder Brown died a couple of days ago......the Disbar is still going. I have been running Copper for four days now.

More bad news.

I was planning on moving the Disbar to the Observation Tank this weekend. On Sunday Morning, I found he had died during the night.

I put three Flame Cardinals in my QT tank yesterday. Also, I added a Goniastrea Brain to the Observation tank.

The Cardinals actually ate just before I turned out the lights.....this morning they were out swimming about and looking good.

Following along, I live out in the desert as well. Always sunny but presents its own challenges.

Both the Tang and the Disbar died while in QT. The Tang went from swimming around normally and eating well to dead in about four days. The Disbar lasted about three weeks. It is getting really frustrating. Out of about twelve fish I have bought, only one has survived due to pests and disease. Some came from my LFS and the rest I purchased online.

I changed tactics and purchased three Flame Cardinals from DD. They have been in QT for 15 days and are looking good and eating well. I will probably leave them in QT for another week before I move them to the Obversation tank.

One good thing about having a reef in the desert is the evaporation rate. On my 120, I am losing about 2 gallons a day. An easy way to add Kalkwasser.

The Flame Cardinals are still doing great. I will probably add them to the Observation Tank this weekend.

I moved the Flame Cardinals directly to the display tank. They are doing well and are hiding less now. Whenever they see me come into the room, they come out of the rocks and expect to be fed.

Here is a picture of one of the Flame Cardinals I moved to the DT.
