Sounds great! I am glad that the Wrasse is settling in. Sorry that I can't help with your Butterfly questions, I am just starting to learn about them.

All good. Maybe someone will know. I have read they can be kept in multiples but should be introduced all at the same time. Just wondering if I can add one now that I have one already.

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

I am sure you have heard this multiple times before, but maybe you could try removing your current Butterfly, rearranging rock work, adding new fish, and then adding the Klein's back again. That does sound like a pain though, lol.

Yeah, that would be an option. I can't see the kleins being aggressive though, kinda a wimpy fish. Unless it's feeding time then he's an aggressive eater. I've added several fish and so far the wrasses are the most obnoxious. lol

Yeah, maybe you could get the next Butterfly a little bigger just to make sure. Do you have a relationship with your LFS that if your new Butterfly was not accepted, they would take it back?

Not sure. Pretty sure I wouldnt get my money back though. The lfs's around here aren't very customer friendly. I was thinking of getting one of these

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Heniochus Black & White Butterflyfish

Cool, I love Heniochus! They are both labeled as peaceful, and the Heniochos grows a little bigger, so I think he is a nice choice. I just hope that they get along, lol.

I just added the heniochus butterfly to my tank last week. Great looking fish, not shy at all and eats most everything I put in the tank.

That wrasse looks a lot like an orange back fairy, except it's back is yellow rather than orange but I think it can be more yellow than orange on some....

I guess i will be happy with knowing its a fairy. LOL Funny little fish. he doesn't seem to mingle with the other fish and kinda swims near the sandbed.

We also have named the flame hawk, his name is sumo. Like the japanese wrestlers, the fish has these crazy eyebrows LOL

Really enjoying this tank, stocking it has been fun. heck doing the build was fun too. hehe...

Can't wait for that tang to come back into stock. Hopefully it will be soon. And the butterfly I linked above is out of stock too. :-( It'll be good to let the tank sit for a bit I'm guessing, i added a lot of fish in a short time. No spikes in parameters yet. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I have coralline growing on the overflow and some of the base rock! havent seen it spread so quick before here's hoping it doesn't get too bad like in the 125g. At least I don't have any corals in this tank for the coralline to kill.

Still debating the last few fish i can add....it has to be something small just not sure what yet.
