View Full Version : WTB: LS and jawfish
02/28/2006, 08:58 PM
I am looking for some extra LS (and maybe a bit of crushed coral) to suppliment the 75 lbs I already have in my 55g reef. I want to add a yellow-head jawfish. Right now the substrate (consisting of fine sand) is about three inches deep.
Current inhabitants are a pair of black ocellaris (w/ their rather large RBTA) and rainsford goby. This will most likely be the last fish I add.
Tank has been established for ~8 months. I have a canopy, since I have read they are known jumpers.
Any advice on these fish and know of where I can get one, in addition to suggestions on adding the additional substrate. I am in no hurry to add the fish. Thanks.

Marcye at SITC can get you one. She just got some fish in from Australia that have the most striking colors...fabulous! She also has the best and cleanest LS you will ever see. You can add the sand to an established tank with no ill efffects. If anything it helps the tank. I have been adding this LS to my tank for almost three years..periodically.

I actually was thinking of doing that yesterday after I posted. I think I may drop by and see what she can do. It'll be a good time to visit since I haven't been there in a week or two.

For sure Marcye! I was going to come in Thursday, but I had an exam I had to prepare for. I'll check them out when you get them in. Thanks.
