The nudi were not to blame.
You put a fragile poisonous creature in a small tank with a blender.
We all make mistakes and I've done that before. impellers and nudi's dont mix well.
At least I had a bigger tank with a skimmer to take out some of the toxins though.

there's a difference when a nudi get shredded n when it dies. when it gets shredded, the poison is released simultanously n will be much more potent.

this is another case of "do not trust LFS info". do your own research n go with that. 99.9% of all nudis will not surrive for more than a few months in cap.

Why not, the nudis cannot argue other way anyway. I always blame the one who is absent when there's a problem. HAHAHAHA

That makes a lot of sense. And as far as your advice from LFS I agree, especially where I got the Nudis. One of their guys can't even tell the difference between true percula vs false. I will definately take your advice and do my own research instead of relying on them.

On another note, I do get pretty accurate info from the guys over at H2O Aquarium. Sometimes they actually talk me out of a purchase of livestock or equipment.
