  1. When I say kids that can range anywhere from a toddler to a teenager. The top of the tank where the overflow box is about 5 feet up. They either threw it up there with good aim or dropped it while being carried in their parents arms. No it wouldn't take a few minutes since it only takes a second to drop the crayon in the box.
  2. No, it's just that the tank uses metal halides and it's so the lights are perched up on all four corners so their is a gap between the tank and the lights. Reason being the lights are up and on other tanks there must be a large opening in the back is because the lights produce so much heat. LED lights produce no heat, but cost a fortune, talking in the thousands =/
  3. Most of the fish were in the $30 range, but the corals in the tank easily out price the fish.
  4. Well said. Went back in to work and all the soft corals are doing great but several of the stoney corals are half bleached.
  5. We have signs and they still do it...
  6. I work at a pet store that has a very good aquatic department. We have a lot more saltwater fish than freshwater and a huge coral selection, so it's very enjoyable to look at everything. Lots of the families come in to the section with several of their young kids and look at the fish. Of course they treat this area like a day care, as I am suppose to babysit their kids and tell them to stop smacking the glass or putting their hands in the water. It's very annoying to have an adult smile at their kid as their hand is dipping in to the coral tanks. The store is right next to a chuckecheese which just makes things worse for me. My work day started off normal and all the fish were active and healthy. After I fed all the fish I decided to take an early lunch break. About an hour after my break I looked at our show tank and notice a green chromis dead, so I go to scoop him out. Next I see a cardinal dead....I start to frantically look at the tank and notice ALL the fish are dead. I tried to save some that were still alive like a purple tang, but after a few minutes died. A total of about 13 fish were dead. I managed to get the giant clam out and put him in the clam tank where he reopened and was thriving. All the coral closed and and is now doing fine. I did a large water change and couldn't figure out what caused this. I looked all over the tank and in the sump and overflow and found nothing. Next day I get a text from my manager and he was able to find the problem... SOME STUPID KID PUT CRAYONS IN THE OVERFLOW BOX!!!
  7. Love the mushrooms in the second tank!
  8. That's nice, you should give the owner a ring or stop by again and let him/her know because everyone appreciates compliments on their fish/tank.
  9. I also forgot to mention you would need a powerhead.
  10. What? Clowns only use anemones to host in. Clowns will only host in bubble tip, sebae, long tentacle, and carpet. They will NEVER host in a condylactis. Captive bred clowns will host in ANYTHING *that means live rock* This is because they are not from the wild and have NEVER seen an anemone. A 10g tank is way to small for an anemone. You can have 2 clowns in a 10g tank, but 12-14 would be better. You MUST get both clowns at the same time or the clown in the tank originally will kill the new clown. When the clowns mature one will become the male and the other will become the female. The female becomes larger. If you have a pair one will become the male and the other a female. You will need to buy roughly 6 pounds of live rock. Every gallon you want roughly a pound of live rock. *Adding lbs of rock will cause less water to be in the tank* Since you are doing a FOWLR *fish only with live rock* you can use regular fluorescent lighting. Also get a bag of live sand. You will not need a sump for this size tank, using a regular HOB filter will work great, also mentioned a protein skimmer will help dramatically. Mentioned before you will need a hydrometer to measure the salinity, salt, spare 5 gallon bucket, and an extra heater. You will need to heat up your water before adding it to your tank since it's going directly in. I recommend only using RO water if you can get it from a local shop, won't be expensive at all to do a small water change *usually around .75 cents a gallon* You will have an algae bloom when your tank is first cycling. Getting small snails will help with algae. Do not get turbo snails for a 10g since they are pretty large. You could also add some small inverts if you wanted like a cleaner shrimp or feather duster. Enjoy your tank
  11. Brine shrimp is like cardboard, has no nutritional value. Get them some frozen mysis shrimp.
  12. Unfortunately those type of people also buy 8 commons lol.
  13. Thanks everyone. The panda does have some orange freckles on his other side and you can see a tiny bit of orange below his dorsal fin, but all very light colored, still a perfect color pattern for me.
  14. I haven't taken pictures of my fish in a while so here are some new ones! I also picked up a panda oranda, crown pearlscale, and a calico ranchu. Hopefully I'm not the only one that find this picture hilarious...
