    Suggestions for new fish

    Thank you Uncle99!! I would love of a school of Anthias!!!! The only thing troubling me is their feeding schedule. Would I have to feed them more than once a day??? I currently feed frozen brine & mysis and nori once per day

    oh yea I don't want to take that chance. That's not the type of school I was looking for lol. FYI: I did have a drawf angel I absolutely loved him!! and I was lucky he didn't pick at any corals. He didn't last long though I have no idea why

    Suggestions for new fish

    Wow, I just read about the Leopard Wrasse, what a fascinating fish!!! I'm not up for feeding more than once a day though. That rules out the Anthias and neon wrasse too. Also I forgot to mention I do have a lid screen on the tank. I just read PJ Cardinals like to be in schools of at least 6, I'm...

    Cool! Thanks for the advice!! I know what you mean about the Tangs. I had a Blue Hippo for most of my reef keeping and he/she was never agressive to anyone. But after adding the Powder Blue, he/she was fine the first year, but recently becoming aggressive to the Sailfin, doesn't bother any of...

    Blue Hippo Tang losing too much weight!!

    Thanks so much for your kind words jdemarco. Yes, this is our first major loss which I suppose is not bad for 6 years, but the entire tank has changed in a depressing way and has become hard for me to appreciate. Like grief in general i'm sure it will pass with time but I didn't expect it to...

    Blue Hippo Tang losing too much weight!!

    She passed the next day, I got to say goodbye. He was the tank for me, we had him for 6 years and was our first setup. Thanks for your amazing suggestions!!! I was too late and maybe there's nothing I could've done. Her name was Sapphire https://vimeo.com/225530145

    Blue Hippo Tang losing too much weight!!

    My Blue Hippo Tang has been losing too much weight in the past 6 months. I've had him for 6 years and he's always been a happy fish, even now he still is. Luckily he still comes out during feeding and when I put my face to the tank but he's resting in the rocks more and more every day. His ribs...

    Fish only setup - 30 gal

    Lighting is LED and came with the tank. It looks custom built I don't believe it's anything high quality. No timer or anything on it just an on/off switch and like 6 degrees of blue to white light.

    Fish only setup - 30 gal

    No although it looks like a perfect jellyfish tank the back part is full of square corners. The tank is like a tall rectangle with a half sphere in the front. For equipment, I'm doing a heater, powerhead, and canister, with black sand (caribsea tahitian moon). The display part will have 15 lbs...
