Fish list

Hey guys I just set up my 275 gallon reef tank last week, I'm going to let it cycle for like a month before I put any fish in it, I have 2 questions. First how long does it take for the water to clear up after putting it in your tank ? And second I'm putting together a fish list, do u guys have any advise or can you list some fish for me to add to my tank ?

Clearing the tank depends on your filtration system. A bit of filter floss helps to clear the water. Make sure to clean it often tho. It's a nice size tank. But it's a tall tank and allot of bigger fish need length to swim. The extra height does mean extra water volume which will help with the water quality. Are you going reef or fowlr? Without that information we can't really give you some fish choices. Thanks

With that size tank there are tons of options. What kinds of fish do you like? You could do clowns, tangs, wrasses, anthias, chromis, blennies, hawkfish and so on.

Exactly what I was thinking. If you have a deep sandbed you could put some type of goby in. I would say wrasse but they tend to jump and I notice your top is open. Great looking tank. What type of tangs you thinking about?

Wow, nice setup! You're setup for a nice reef with the 52s and vortechs. I like the anthias school idea, as stated you can pretty much do most fish. Look forward to seeing it come together for you!
