I think the Pygmy angel might be too aggressive, and for wrasses maybe a golden wrasse? It's small but I'm not sure if its small enough. Same with fairy wrasse, lemon meringue wrasse, and flasher wrasse.

Hmm what about a sixline? Not the most impressive wrasse but my lfs said he would be fine and is less of a jumper.

I may be keeping the 90g I got yesterday and it will be covered with no corals so I can go crazy on a super colorful wrasse in there I was thinking. IF I keep that tank that is.

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

Ya the sixline too forgot that one. And you should get a harlequin tuskfish if you get another large tank! Those look really cool but it might be too big lol

I saw the price tag for the tuskfish and it drove me away. LOL Absolutely beautiful fish though. I;m still not sure whats going in the 90g if I end up keeping it. LOL

I;m just working on going through my tanks to add the finishing touches on them before I start a new project. Well at least with the cube. I'm also almost done stocking my 125g as well. Just a few more fish that I'm pretty set on.



So, no angels in the cube then? Still looking for one more fish to round it all out. The firefish should be an awesome addition I think.

My six line surprised me. I wasn't all that hot on them but once he was in the tank I am thrilled with him. My wife says it is her favorite. He is always in and out of the rocks and never stops moving.

Only been about 12 hours but....the Blue/Green Chromis are looking like they are going to extreamly active. They are everywhere. I was also very pleased with the Kole (I know, off topic but...). He hid for about 3 minutes then was all over the place.

And yes, I know I am going to have to upgrade in a year or two with the Kole. Take good care of the 125 because I will be coming to pick it up. hehehehe

Today I think marks success for my mandarin story. I fed them as usual and all that mandy ate was prepared.Lots of cyclopeeze in the forzen tube, gotta get more of that, and bloodworms and mysis. No hunting in the rocks, even picking right from the water column. It's been what, a month and a half maybe? It took awhile of hard work but she did it. LOL

I also suspect the ORA thing played a role though. She was raised on pellets so I think that gave me somewhat of an advantage along with the fact that I have an active fuge with pods in the tank which I think is what got her through. Don't know what would have happened if I didn't have the pods I did. I was so tempted at times to put her in the 125g which is teeming with pods glad I never did it.

Other cube news, lemme see...

banana the used to be yellow watchman is still white and black. havent figured this one out yet. He can't have permanently stressed himself colorless could he have? lol

The new b&w clowns are doing their little bickering dance now, poor tiny one. I think they will pair up quite well with some more time.

Since I am pretty much done with stocking this tank, (though I wish I could have a firefish) other than maybe some easy corals...

I'm thinking on upgrades. I already have the media baskets and fuge and the led light. i was thinking on upping the return pump size, either to 350gph or 550 gph though I think the 550 might be too much to be honest.

Anyone have any thoughts?

thanks for reading my cube update report!
