Having my fish in a hospital tank gives me an opportunity to rethink my stocking list for the main tank, and I would love feedback before I finalize it. I currently have three clowns and two bangaii cardinals and I think I'll only keep one cardinal and bring the rest back to the LFS
when they're done with hypo. I do want one clown, but I want to add him (or her) last since they're not so friendly.
Would this group work in a 55 gallon tank, are they all reef safe, and is this the right order to add them??
bangaii cardinal (already have, in hospital tank)
yellow coris (picked up yesterday, in QT for next 3-4 weeks)
*I'm considering adding a mandarin and would love to hear from anyone who has successfully been able to keep one. All I see when searching on this forum and others are warnings and failures, but there must also be some success stories?? Any suggestions for a successful quarantine period? And I know some wrasses will compete with the mandarin for pods
, is this true of the coris?
