Are your fish happy? If so, you definitely nailed it.

My fish seem happy. My skunk shrimp molted last night. And he is hiding in his little hang over. btw little side question, I have a emperor penguin 200 series on a 20g hospital tank that I didn't have to use. I put it on my 40b. Is that a bit of an over kill? I have a 330 gph hob on there already and I don't want it to sit around.

Just try to get your landscape finished before you start adding more corals.The more corals you get,the harder it is to change things around.

Got it. Thanks. Also I have a small frag from my yellow polyps and I was told to super glue it to a small rock. Will any super glue work?

Use super glue gel that is cyanoacrylate based.

I would think that the 2 hob filters would def work. You can't really have too many hob filters lol

I agree about the filters, just can't have too much filtration.

It also will allow you to set up a qt tank on the spur of the moment if something should happen.

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

Yeah that will be good. Will it allow more pods?

I'd have to say no to that though. Pods like to live and reproduce in nooks and crannies of rock and in a refugium with rock and macroalgae. I can see literally thousands of pods crawling around on my live rock and in my refugium. When I clean out my filter sock I see some larger ones in there but not many. Not sure they survive the filtration.

if youre looking for pods maybe a refugium is for you, they even make hang on back ones if you dont have room underneath the tank for one.
