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

What could i use as a fuge if the rocks don't cut it? i always thought when people referred to fuge they meant sand or gravel. Here's a pic of my Rock set up. I think there is an insane amount of hide'n places cuz the rock is so pourus and has alot of holes for the tiny pods to hide out and reproduce but I could be wrong.

A fuge is usually a tank below your DT, where delicate life can seek refuge. Some people keep pods, stars, I have one buddy that keeps harlaquin shrimp. I know I probably misspelled that, lol.

Nah I don't have a fuge then. So the way it's look'n with the setup I have right now the outcome would more than likely be bleak. I'm still gonna give it a shot and add a few bottles of pods over the next couple of months and see if the population explodes. Cuz as far as i know none of the fish i have now are active pod eaters. I'm sure they will occasionally get chowed on but not actively hunted. right now I have...

1 Ocellaris Clownfish, Tank Bred

1 Black & White Ocellaris Clownfish - Tank-Bred

1 Multicolor Angelfish

1 Sleeper Banded Goby

1 Two-line Monocle Bream

1 Diamond Watchman Goby

1 Yellow Prawn Goby

1 Banded Coral Shrimp

1 Blood Red Fire Shrimp
And the usual suspects for CUC about 5 different species of Hermit crabs and a lot of different snails. The only problem spot I see as might be'n a problem is the Angelfish cuz he's always nip'n at the rocks.
