I'm assuming you mean majano? A mango infestation would be delicious.

Just boil the rock. It should cure the problem.

Garibaldi get big and extremely aggressive as they mature. Damsels in general are nasty. Garibaldi are extremely nasty. You would need a large tank if you planned to keep one. Liveaquaria suggests 125g...they tend to go large at times, but IMO, 125 seems small.

Got the stand built today
It still needs to be wrapped and doors added
I have room to house a future sump underneath
I will need to plumb both tanks to the one sump but thats down the line
also I put plastic egg crate on floor of tank to keep rocks from breaking glass

Still need to pick up power heads , skimmer , heater , and bunch of other odds and ends
