Yeah I'd say if you keep up doing usual water change you'll be OK.

Yep, pwc's are a religion with me. Due to my overfeeding I run nitrates at about 5 but other than that everything is stable.

I;m hoping to have the new tank up in a month or so, I figure I can move the clowns into that tank. I want the new tank to be primarily corals so I dont want any bottom dwellers.

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

I think I would have a stroke if any of my tanks got to 20 nitrates. LOL I'm running 5 in 3 of my sw tanks and 0 in my 125g.

So here are the new clowns. they have started eating already and seem to be doing well. But I do have a question.

They were sold as australian black perculas....are there such a thing? I thought the b&w's were a strain of oscellaris? Aren't perculas more prone to aggression than the regular nemos?

I also added two emerald crabs and a tiny cleaner shrimp, all three are now lost in the rockwork. lol

And my YWG is NOT happy. He is almost white now and keeps doing the open mouth lunging at my scooter who just blows him off. LOL

Since the cube is overstocked now I plan on moving the clowns to my new build once it gets up and running.

Since the mandarin has picked up her eating habits I think I will keep her in the cube.

One other thing that was mentioned was to add a pistol shrimp for the YWG. Ihave one in my 125g with a pink watchman but they have yet to interact and it's been months. I also had some unexplained cleaner shrimp deaths in there and it could be the pistol shrimp. I just don't want thepistol to harass any of the delicate fish I have in the cube, like my tiny mandy or even the tiny cleaner.....

Here are the clowns...one is def more orange than the other and there is quite a size difference as well between them.

Here's a picture of the YWG, he is pretty much white now with black stripes. I hope he snaps out of it soon, it's not like the new clowns are anywhere near him and the two crabs haven't bothered him either.
