I noticed that the Kleini was acting strange in the QT. My ammonia test kit had expired. So I went to Petco and bought a new one. I test the water and it was at 4.0ppm!. The bacterial on the chunk of live rock must have started to die off. That is the only explination I have. All of the food I was feeding to them was eaten. The left nothing in the water. They ate like a couple of pigs. I grabbed a net and fished them out and put them in the DT. Hopefully they were not carrying any diseases/pests. They came from Diver Den.

Here is a picture of them in the Display Tank. They were swimming around and picking at the live rock soon after putting them in it. I hope their gills are not destroyed.

It has been a week now since I got the Kleini and Mertensii. They are eating well. Every time I enter the room where my Display Tank is, they are at the glass wanting to be fed. I am feeding them twice a day. No signs of illness, pests or disease. I am wanting to add two or three more butterflies. I am looking at Heniochus singularis, Chaetodon rafflesi , Chaetodon decussatus, Chaetodo punctatofasciatus or the Chaetodo pelewensis.
