I have a couple questions that I am hoping to get help with. I am a planner and am trying to plan out my aquarium but hit a couple snags. Please let me explain and then any help I can get would be greatly appreciated.
About two months ago I started adding a clean up crew of a couple different kinds of snails and some hermit crabs. After a couple weeks I went to start adding my fish thinking I would start with a Carpenter's flasher wrasse and a Benggai Cardinal. I ended up not liking the wrasse at all and ended up with the cardinal and a striped fang blenny instead. They are doing really well so far. I now want to add a royal gramma, an ocellaris clownfish, a longnose hawkfish, a one spot foxface, a coral beauty angelfish and a kole yellow eye tang one at a time in that order (except the angel and tang at the same time). I really want a wrasse of some sort too but I am not sure what kind to get as I am told that the six-line wrasse is a menace and will torment and maybe even kill the other fish. Can anyone give any advice on a good wrasse to add and when to add them that will be reef safe? Also, my water is testing out good right now so I think I will add another fish this weekend. Does it matter what order I add the royal gramma, clownfish or hawkfish?
Second, I was also given some sort of polyp from a friend of mine so my idea of starting with a FOWLR
setup and moving to a reef aquarium has now changed and the problem is that I don't know how to take care of these polyps or even what kind I have. Can anyone tell me how to take care of these as I am worried that I am not doing it right and I don't want to cause any problems for them or my tank? I am attaching a picture of them here but it is not a good picture as I couldn't see the middle (it is all light green) and it was with my cell phone.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
