Have they taken any food yet? I have tried Panda gobies twice before with no luck.

I was asking on R2R about getting them to eat, and one guy replied that had first-hand experience. He said he kept them with Pygmy Seahorses and never saw the Pandas feeding. He said he also never saw them until he shut the tank down. Haha. I haven't seen mine feeding, but when I add live brine shrimp they become more active, so I think they are eating. The smaller one that got stuck in the Zoa polyps isn't doing so well. This morning I thought it was dead - on its side - but when I went to grab it with tweezers it jumped up, and looks fine. They are so weird. I've been feeding thawed PE Calanus too, but I don't see any action when I feed that. I'm going to start up a Tigger Pod culture - can feed my "big" reef that too.

I added a couple more zoa frags, added a Poccilopora frag for the Panda gobies (I might remove it, not a fan of Poccis and the gobies like the rocks better anyway), removed the Toadstool Leather, and added a few Rock Flower Anemones. I still need to put something right in the middle where the Toadstool was. Hmm...what to add??

I found the smaller Panda Goby dead this morning. This is the same one that almost got eaten by the Sunny D polyps, and has been all dazed and confused ever since. I think he got stung. The other one I saw a streak of this morning, so he's still kicking. I'm feeding the tank twice a day with a live baby brine shrimp and PE Calanus mixture - maybe 30 BBS and about 12 pieces of Calanus. The LFS is getting Catalina Gobies tomorrow, so I hope to score a couple! I missed out on the super cool Periclimenes anemone shrimps. They are SO cool!


The diatom bloom is over, and now coralline algae is growing like mad! It's sucking all the calcium and alkalinity out of the water! I am doing 2-gallon water changes 2x per week. This is super easy though, and only takes me about 6 minutes. I keep a 5-gallon pail running with saltwater and a heater, so it's ready to go whenever I have 6 minutes to do a water change (usually while I'm cooking supper).


I can't remember if I mentioned that I got the 1/2" glass lily pipe, but apparently the Fluval is 5/8" hose. Dangit, I even did The Google. Apparently The Google doesn't know everything! So I need an adapter to get the pipe on - this weekend's project! The lily pipe is bigger than expected even though measurements were provided (everything is big when you're talking about a pico tank), so I may try to DIY something different. I really like the Innovative Marine Spin Stream nozzles, but they are kinda bulky for the pico, and not sure the mounting would work out.

Sorry about the Goby, tank (jar) is looking nice.

Is your cooking any good?

Pics from just now. I moved the corals around a bit. Still not sure what to put in the middle.
