30g reef

i want to convert my 30g from FO to reef. I am going to get PC lighting, and about 20-30 lbs of LR. What would be good fish to add. I currently have two ocellaris that i am not sure will live(previous post). I was thinking maybe a flame angel.

When you add the rock, it may introduce some more ammonia into your system. So you may want to put it ina rubbermaid container with a heater and powerhead for a few days. Most people, including me, experinced a very minimal cycle from adding rock to a tank. Or you may want to add the rock to your tank and QT the clowns until they are healthier.

Try adding some garlic extreme to the food. Sometimes this will help a fish that has stopped eating.

Also, think about a cleanup crew. BTW, what kind of water are you using? Tap, RO/DI?


If consequence dictate my course of action, then it doesn't matter what's right, it's only wrong if you get caught.....

I would stay away from any angel fish in a reef setup, mainly because they like to nip at corals. Now there are exceptions to this rule but would you want to spend $50.00 on a coral and by chance only to have that angel eat it?
