It is what is, you have them now. You can take care of the current issues at hand for now. Then you can address your tank mate issues later. I'm assuming they are not that large at present. Just do the best you can. Good luck and hope goes well for you.

Ok, so I looked up your tank and found that it is only 50 gallons and a corner tank at that. That's a big problem. You have a small fish tank and wayyy too many fish to even consider taking through a cycle.

I gotta say, the 5 fish you have in there are going to be sacrificed in the name of beginner mistakes. Especially that Regal Tang. Both he and the lipstick (Naso) have no business being in a tank that small.

If nobody can house them and the LFS that sold you those fish won't take them back, I'd suggest Craigslist. Try to sell them to get some money back. Then, moving forward, ask lots of questions here prior to purchasing anything. You will get good advice and probably avoid these types of mistakes.

Definately agree with Todd.

Try gettign rid of the fishies so they will go to a safer home and start a fresh slate. You need to be testing for Ammonia, Nitrate and Nitrite for the next few weeks and only when you have zero nitrites and ammonia then you can add live stock. Nitrates should be kept as close to zero as possible however not as deadly as the other 2.

Like Todd said take full advantage of this site before making any decision. There's some really clued up aquarists on here. Its how i got to where i am now!

It is great that you found a better shop. I suggest a combo of their advice mixed with advice from here. I have learned that there are places out there that have years of "experience", but that still give questionable advice or suggest things that are more sales-based.

I recently lost a bit of respect for a local place that had someone with a tank that was still cycling (from what I could hear) and this guy wanted some fairly rare puffer that they have had for months. He kept asking if they thought it would be okay and he was being told "it might". I feel that they should have told him to wait and that, No, it probably would not be okay right now. Technically they were right, there is a chance, but I'm betting it did not make it.

Hi thanks again for comment, we had the same thing happen to us, we went to 1 shop who told us after a water check that it would be fine to add fish?? We didn't!! As we came across our new shop the i was talking about, we asked the owener to check our water(second opinions never harm). To our surprise and shock our water levels were all over the place(hense that's why we're sticking with this guy). So as you no not 1 fish was or could've been added an we did the nessacary water changes, guess some shops dive in for the hard sale.
