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

That's cool... I'll go past tomorrow my LFS and find out a little more in terms of cost etc of the mush rooms. I'll keep you posted with how things go. Again thank you so much for your help.

I'd strongly suggest you get that sick tang in order before adding anything else. In another link you're talkig about adding meds. Also, might even have to tear down the tank/rocks to catch the tang. I'd hold off adding any coral for now.

Yeah I know what you are saying. I spoke to my LFS and started a treatment. You Can see what ive done which so far looks like it's working. Im on the iPhone so unable to place a link to the tread but it's in the sick fish category.

Thanks again Guys for everything

iF YOU DONT WANT THE EXPENSE OF LIGHTS AND CORALS THEN GET SOME MACRO ALGAE,NOT ONLY DO THEY HELP REDUCE YOUR TRATES A LOT OF THEM ARE NICE TO LOOK AT. halimeda is quite nice,Halimeda(monile/Incrassata), Halymenia,flame algae, Laurencia and shaving brush plant I think are the best ones

Ok thanks I will look into them today. Are they easy to maintain? Also aren't the mushrooms easy to look after and don't need special lighting?

I'm Aussie aswell.
Sort out your tank first. Especially with the sick fish. Marinedepot.com.au I think that's the right site.
There's 2 bulb systems there that would grow mushrooms or zoa's
