I have 5 mangroves growing in my cube's fuge. It's taken months and months but they are finally budding and I have the led light running opposite my main lights. I have a timer set for the leds so it runs over night and hopefully is helping keep the Ph stable.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So what exactly is ph and why is it so important?

Yep, I run the chemi pure elite in my media basket and I run purigen instead of the carbon. The filter floss is a great invention I swear, helps keep my water nice and clear.

Cool! I'll probably run regular old carbon with the chemi pure.

My six line is extremely active. Never stops. He loves darting in and out of the rocks. I have seen him go through hole I never would have imagined he could fit through.

Yeah that's what I'm looking for. Would it get along with a clown, a bangaii, a jaw fish, and a royal gramma?

Just saw a picture of an orange throat pikeblenny On LA. Omg. Wow. Since I can stay settled on a stock list I'm going to throw out a few ideas and you guys choose the best one...

List A:
1 occelaris clown
1 royal gramma
1 bangaii cardinal
1 orange throat pikeblenny
1 yellow head jaw fish

List B:
2 occelaris clowns
1 royal gramma
1 bangaii cardinal
1 goby(pink spot or yellow watchman)

List C
1 occelaris clown
1 royal gramma
1 bangaii cardinal
1 yellow watchman goby
1 orange throat pikeblenny

List D
1 ocellaris clown
1 royal gramma
1 bangaii cardinal
1 yellow head jawfish
1 orange throat pikeblenny
1 goby
(too much?)

Sorry.
I love list D but 6 fish....:/

I don't know about the others but mine has never bothered my clowns, Kole Tang, Blue/Green Chromis, Diamond Watchman Goby or my Fire Shrimp. But then maybe he is just laid back like me. :-0
