Zachey - you're going to need to remind me - what size tank are we looking at now? My apologies, there's been some many different tanks going back and forth, I don't remember what is actually being talked about now...

So you're still determined to cram two clowns into a 20, along with a goby and a wrasse?

I would say put in the firefish, the gramma, the cardinal, and ONE of the other fish...two at the absolute
most.

Hey zach, really sorry about your clown. :-(

You CAN put in inverts and corals if you want, not sure if I would but you could.

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

Like stated before...6 is really pushing it. I would really remove one fish from the list, or switch out a free swimmer with a bottom dweller. Think about it.

And yes, you can add inverts and corals while the tank sits fallow for the next 6-8 weeks.

I would strongly advise that you go ahead with your QT setup now, so that you can QT your new fish in 6-8 weeks and you don't have to go through this again. Once you know your system is ich free, you don't want to add it back in.

--I know the frustration, I'm doing it all over again right now --
