I have a 55 gal
with 60 lbs of liverock, 60 lbs of argonite substrate a 10 gallon wet/dry, and I will be adding a 10 gal
fuge this weekend with another 10 lbs of live rock, and a 4 inch argonite bed
3 inch sand sifting goby
1 inch clown goby
2.5 inch mandalin goby
3 inch yellow tang
3 inch lamars angel
2x 1.5 inch yellow tail damsels.
I also run a remora protein skimmer
I also have a sand sifting star, 10 hermit crabs 2 cleaner shrimp, 2 emerald crabs, 1 other small crab, and a bunch of snails.
The new additions are the star, sand sifting goby, and mandrin goby....
I do not run any additional filtration. I have not noticed an spike in amonia, or nitrite. I have been battling nitrate but was doing that before i added the few fish. My nitrates are down to 20 ppm
but were at 160 about 2 months ago.
The new fish have only been in there for about 3 days. I am below the 1 inch of fish for 3 gallons... I think I am ok, but just wanted to see what other people think. I am thinking of getting rid of my angel if I start noticing my amonia increase....
