 Hmmmm...  Its  like  this.
 
 I  have  a  few  air  powered  Protein  Skimmers,  that  are  brand  new,  and  I  have  converted  my  marines  to  freshwater,  including  a  few  cocoa  damsels,  LOL!
 
 So,  I  have  them,  and  I  dont  need  them.  They  are  brand  new,  never  used!  I  like  the  marine  part  of  the  hobby,  and  would  like  to  encourage  people  pursuing  it!
 
 So  this  is  a  standing  offer  to  marine  enthusiasts!  On    first  come  first  served  basis,  and  self  collect  basis!  
 
 Or  maybe  if  you  really  wish  to,  you  could  give  me  some  accessory/fish  related  to  freshwater  in  exchange.  Up  to  you!

 It  is  having  stomach  cancer!  Kidding!  The  dude  is  scared.  Will  take  some  time  to  realise  that  your  his  keeper  and  not  a  threat  to  him.  Once  he  knows  he  is  safe  he  will  eat  not  only  from  the  surface  but  also  above  it  hehe!

 Don't  worry  if  he  is  active  and  accepting  whatever  food  -  he  is  healthy  and  your  tank  is  not  stressing  him!

 The  Y.Tang  is  NOT  READY  for  your  tank.  Please  be  patient  in  this  hobby  and  it  will  pay  rich  dividends.  i  recommend  that  you  return  the  Tang  and  the  anemone  also  and  do  not  add  anything  to  the  tank  for  the  next  30  days  so  as  to  allow  the  bio  load  (bacteria)  to  adapt.

 I  guessa  2  feet  tank  is  not  suitable  for  a  yellow  tang  They  require  a  lot  of  space  and  a  mature  tank  (  atleat  6  -  8  months  old  minimum  )
