A few questions:
First, how should I transfer a fish from the QT
to the mail tank? Drip acclimation? Water scooping method in a bag or specemin container? The pH, salinity, and temp are all very similar in both my tanks.
Second, how soon after adding my first fish can I add a second? I figure while I have the QT
set up and cycled, why not get another fish in there once I move my clown out. There would end up being 3-4 weeks between adding fish to my display.
Third, I think I'd really like some kind of blenny as my second fish. I know they can get to be about 3'', which would be half my allowable inches of fish. Any that will stay smaller? Would it be bad for me to have a pod-hunter so early in my tank's life?
Fourth, I have a lot of bubble algae that I want to get rid of, but I am nervous about adding a mithrax crab. They seem to be hard to remove if they go bad. Physically removing the bubbles would be very difficult, as they are close together and pretty small, but if it means my shrimp and fish stay safer I guess that's the route I'll have to take.
for any help.
