I asked my lfs today about multiple wrasses and he said it can be done, just have to get peaceful wrasses. Not sure how many i will end up with though, only maybe 3 are readily available and reasonable priced so who knows.
lol

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

I plan on using 4 powerheads in there with the new controller I am gonna get so I figured the 90g could get an upgraded pump.

Hope the aqueons are good, I've heard only good things about them.
Sorry that your tank hasn't sold yet, the day will come soon! Congrats on your new pumps! Let us know how they work once they come in.

I hope I can't get three Wrasses for my 125g too. I really like the Fairy and Flasher Wrasses. Carpenters are nice too!

I've seen tanks listed with 5-7 wrasses, so they can get along. They are pretty, I keep going back and forth between a few wrasses or a trio of anthias. I'm sure your tank will sell, keep renewing it too.

Thanks Lefty. Since I'm going with glass lids on this tank I figured now would be my chance to get some wrasses since they are notorious jumpers. Although a few minutes ago while I was sitting in front of the 125g my anthias jumped out of the water splashing me about 3 feet away! LOL Wasn't aware they would or could do that. hehe...
I'd vote for the trio probably, I've been thinking of getting a female or two for my male. They are very active fish and always all over my tank so i think you'd like that

Ohh my, that must have scared you!

I think a trio would look cool too Lefty! I like the Wrasse idea too though.

Just got an email, some lady wants my live rock from the 55g!! the boyfriend also said if i sell the live rock and sand we can move THAT one into the garage and then move the 90g into the dining room!!

The woman is handicapped who wants the rock so she said she needs her son to drive her over when he's available and that won't be til tuesday. :-(

But its a good sign! I may be moving some tanks for xmas lol

In a perfect world i can have this 90g up and running by christmas!

I've also pretty much decided that I am gonna rob the 125g reef of some of it's 250+ lbs of live rock so I don't really have to cycle this tank. LOL I am soo tired of waiting I just want it up. Think about 75lbs of live rock and 30-50lbs of base will avoid a cycle?

Since I bought my tanks all used, I never cycled a tank, so I don't now yet what you mean about waiting. I'm pretty much starting with dry rock on the new one, no pests, no bubble algae, etc.
