It took me 3 days to drop the salinity when I qt'd the firefish and wrasse. Kinda wild how they seemed more lively in hypo than they do in regular salt content. Didn't seem to have anything wrong, just played and swam about more. I'm not using any copper meds because I qt my snails in the same tank.

Also besides these two tangs, what would be another good large(non shrimp and snail eating) fish to have. I would like to have a butterfly of somesorts or a rabbitfish. And I had an idea for water turnover, The tank has 3 1 and 1/2 in overflow holes in the top. I am going to use the outside holes as the siumps intake and the center hole as the return. On the inside of the tank could I glue a piece of pvc leading to the bottom so that it takes water from the surface and returns it to the bottom?

Is the tank gonna be FOWLR or Reef? Cause Butterflys have been well-known to pick at corals and clams. If it's a FOWLR go for a Butterfly (just be very cautious if you decide to get a clam).

Good suggestions. There are some NICE Butterflys and Angels if you are FOWLR. Just be SURE you want a FOWLR becaue thats what I thought I wanted at first too. Now I can't imagine not having a reef tank.

I would like to get an angel but don't they eat your shrimp. I have 4 skunk cleaners after all. An 80 dollar snack is not what I'm going to feed my fish. All at once anyway.

Just about any fish will eat whatever they can fit in their mouth.

I guess that rules out the tiger shark I planned on putting in. So what do guys think about my sump return idea?
