Part is the beauty of the fish and to be honest the other part is the challenge. Lol. These aren't your everyday fish. I really dig the colors too I'm kinda a hippy tie dye chuck hehe

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

because it is a very neat looking fish! With the coloration and the way it moves, reminds me of an underwater hummingbird.

I haven't put in the media basket and fuge yet, I had to glue on of the pieces, stupid thing got broken in transit. hehee.... I also need to get myself a fuge light, anyone have any suggestions?

And I have a new addition to this tank. It was sold as a red striped sleeper goby but my research isn't confirming that.

Here's the picture...anyone know what else this guy may be called?
It looks like a red striped goby,but websites say it only gets to be an inch long.

Compared to leopard wrasses, mandarin gobys are for newbs haha. My LFS went through 6 before they found a pair that lived and actually bred in their 800g display.

Quick question Carey. How long would it take the water to settle in a 20 g...the gravel was taken out and a bag of 20 lb sand was put in...it's been about 6 hours and still super cloudy. Should we have a power head on or off? It's off right now. The tank is empty...should we put the LR back in? Our 6 g was much quicker than this...help

I would put the live rock back in first off and let it settle overnight. My pod tank took over a day to clear up. I'd leave off the powerhead for now but keep whatever filter you have running I;d think to help clear it up.


Hope that helps.
