I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The mushrooms can take a long time or be quick, at least in my tanks. I have a mushroom that keeps moving and leaves baby mushrooms in his path.

I find zooas to grow really quick usually. Within a couple weeks you should have some new polyps pushing out and within a couple months they should completely overtake the frag plug or rock they are on.

I don't know if you dip your corals but that is always a good idea to help keep pests out of your tank. I have been using flatworm x and revive. Once I am out of revive I will get some coral rx. Getting them before they get in your tank is best sometimes things sold to kill pests don't work as well as expected.
