Well, finally someone else that does more frequent water changes. Yeah, it will be a pain in the butt, but I've done it before.

Actually it's pretty much a must with reef tanks, so many reefers do this (unless they like seeing diatoms, hair algae, and cyano, and corals dying), but for FOWLR it's not as typical.

What about something like this? Wouldn't that be able to get the crap off the bottom and make you have to do less water changes?

That is more for tanks with gravel as opposed to sand. and even with that you still have to change out the water.

Yeah, that's what I thought. What would you guys suggest for a vacuum? I was just going to use a the one you hand pump into a bucket. I am buying my water at my LFS (I got well water and I wouldn't use tap water anyway), so mixing won't be an issue. I only do five gallon water changes every week for the first few months, and maybe cut back to every 2 weeks when I get the tank more established. I would never just do a water change once a month. I wouldn't like swimming in my own poop, so I wouldn't expect them too.

Hey guys, fast question.

What if I dropped the Hawkfish and got a Flame Angelfish instead? Would that work out with the current line up of fish, or do you think I could add that fish and have a total of five living things in my 29 gallon tank?

I don't want to over populate my tank.

Current line up in order of how they will go in.

Tuxedo Sea Urchin
Six Line Wrasse
Dwarf Fuzzy Lion
Spotted Hawkfish

You guys think a Flame Angelfish would be ok in that line up? Or should I drop a fish and put him in the line up somewhere, or just keep the line up I got and forget about the Flame Angelfish. :-p Thanks for your advice!!

I'd say add him to the line up, only if you were definitely getting a bigger tank in the future, and as long as they aren't adults when you buy them. If you decided to put him in the line up, I would putt him before or after the wrasse, as long as its before the lion and hawk. Lions and hawks are a little more territorial than the others. Also, I think it would be an nice addition, adds a lot of color to the tank.

It is good how you know that there are limits on the tank, a lot of people over populate their tanks. Which is ok, an only justifiable I they are willing to do the extra maintenance: like higher filtration, skimming, and most of all the extra water changes. And they have to do these things religiously. once again, I think the line up is interesting and great! A lot of different personalities in one tank, and they should all get along. Later! And let is know when your tank is done cycling.
