To add to what the others are saying, you have 7 fish in a 30 and a 4 month old tank. That's a ton of fish in a small tank in a short time period. 4 months is nowhere near success with fish, doing research prior to buying fish and stocking incredibly slowly are the keys to success in this hobby. People here are giving unbiased advice, unlike lfs. We want to see tanks thrive not have fish kill each other or become stressed.

You are only gonna move much slower?What about returning the tang, one of the clowns, and maybe the Coral Beauty? You'relucky the tang police were out.

I might consider it. I love wasting money and watching my fish die tang police bc if I knew in advance that my tang was gonna get pissed with the recent additions I would of added them sooner.

The replies I am going to get should be even more comical to me.

Your not being funny. You are flooding the community with nonsense and wasting users time when they could be out helping someone who really needs it.

It's too bad you are seeing people try to help you as comical, as all information provided is true. My hope is that you can take some of the advice given as it will hope your tank in the long run. I hate seeing others drop out of the hobby after avoidable issues and tank crashes. Either way, good luck to you.

I am sad people don't understand sarcasm and no I am not getting out of the hobby. Just a learning experience.

Im not buying the "overloaded" theory. Yes, it could be, but When I had two 38G going, I had 10 fish in one and 12 in the other. Granted, most of them where 2" or smaller, but thats as much or more of a bioload. I guess the real question is, how much live rock do you have and how big is the tang?
