    Sorry to hear about your loss. Maybe it is time for that Clown Trigger. ;)

    Thank you all for the encouraging and kind words. Hmmm.....a clown trigger - they certainly are gorgeous fish :) It sure does suck but it's unfortunately a down side of this hobby. On a positive note, I think both of my clowns have weathered the storm (fingers crossed).

    Sorry to hear the devastating news OFK but karma comes around. You are always free at offering advice willingly and I'm sure your comeback will be spectacular! When we lost all our corals this past summer from our anemone wanting a ferris wheel ride and then the algae outbreak it was extremely disheartening. Everything seems to be fine within the tank and our comeback will be great. Keep that towel outside the ring!

    Glad you are staying in the game. Sad to hear what happened to your system. If you need some motivation visit Lou or Victor at WWC and another great store called Top Shelf.

    MIndy,
    Sorry for your loss. Things will be OK. You'll get it figured out and it will be even better.

    I'm currently battling Acro pests- that are trying to wipe out my forest! I'm trying to win the battle, but's it even harder when I working OOT at least 4 day/nights a week currently.

    Hang in there, I know you will,
    Todd

    thank you all for the well wishes and sympathy. It is so sad to lose our little friends. Well, mama clown did get sick and died so I have one lone clown left. Tank is looking really bad at the moment - hopefully I can get to work this upcoming weekend on a good water change and getting things back on track. I do have a question, would my clown now become a female if I added in another smaller clown? My clowns were a breeding pair :( obviously, I won't be doing any adding of live stock for some time but I like to at least think about what I may add or keep now.
