Cool redsea's 55g Reef Build

Hi everyone!

This thread is for my 55g, which I will be making a mixed reef.

So far in the tank I have:

1. Assorted Mushrooms
2. Orange Ricordia Mushroom
3. Toadstool

By Christmas time this year I hope to have this tank packed with coral and inverts (I definitely want a few clams). I am going to be adding the fish and coral from my 34g eventually, and the 34g will be my QT tank.

I am completely open to fish and coral suggestions.

Thank you very much for looking at my thread!

Here is an FTS.

There is also a blurry picture of my Toadstool when it was in the 125g.

Thanks, it doesn't look that good right now though in the 55g, lol. I don't think I will be adding any corals to the FOWLR only because I want to be able to treat for ich if it pops up again.

Thanks for posting!

Did you guys have any ideas as far as stocking goes? I wasn't originally going to stock this coral tank with fish, but you know how that goes, lol. The REAL reason was that I was afraid of getting ich, but the more i think about it, it would not be as hard to setup a QT for these few fish if ich ever entered the tank (as opposed to the 125g).

A definite is a Mandarin (or a pair) from ORA. But even still, I don't know which kind I want.

The rest of the fish are all up in the air. Tell me what you think.

Oh, and I won't be stocking until 8 wks from now, just to make sure there is no ich.

Thank you very much!

I think you should add a midas blenny and maybe some chromis. I really really like my blue reef chromis. They are a little bit more $$ but they are different.

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