That is the LFS that is down the street. I was looking at the dry rock for a new tank of mine. I buy my fish from one 45 minutes away, so it is more of a RFS (regional fish store) I remember that on my first visit, the employee absolutely would not sell a baby humu humu triggerfish to this person with a 30 gallon tank. they also QT their fish for 2 weeks before they go on sale. Which just means 2 less weeks in my QT tank :}

Oh, and believe me, I was not being quiet during the clownfish ordeal I talked her out of getting some tangs for the tank in addition to the clowns.

Lol. Try being a 27 year old chick that still gets asked go highschool is for me. Lol. And I really throw people off when the guy at my LFS looks to me when he draws a blank and the people in the store are asking questions. It still cracks me up. I help my guy at the LFS when he's backed up. I've bagged fish, tested water and given advice. Only thing I've never done is check people out and acclimate fish in ( and that's cause the owner is there for that). Lol

The LFS knows me by a first name basis, I guess because I am easy to remember. they don't see a lot of 8th graders educating adults on the cycling process. They have my 29 Biocube stocklist written down by the cash register, and if one of the fish shows up at the store (which is unlikely as I have a relatively rare-fish stocklist and they mainly just get common fish like clownfish, tangs, and damsels) they will hold it for me. They know that I haven't even started the cycle yet also.

Yeah, your stocking list is good as it is, 7-8 is pushing it, especially with the fish you have already. You'll want less fish in a reef tank, to keep nitrates down for the corals.

Funny story: my lfs once told me an ocellaris clown couldn't be in anything less than a 50g and refused to sell me one for my 28g lol. Well meaning, but the guy was old, and probably hadn't kept up with the Berlin method. Bottom line, the lfs is often misguided or plain wrong.

I say 4 fish in a 29. 5 max. People don’t realize how big fish actually get. Hearing and seeing are two different things. I saw a full grown chromis the other day and was shocked. It was as big if not bigger than the palm of my hand.
