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

I believe he did. So not sure if thats my issue or not. I guess I can stop running the reactor and see where that gets me, just hesitant since I am relying on it to help with the nitrates....

How are you feeding now? Maybe too many fish?

As usual, I love the pictures and the new additions! Were these taken with your iPhone or camera?

The iphone, pictures arent that great but I did get some shots of the new guy. lol He is really eating like a pig and I cant even put into words what he does to algae sheets, he is crazy!!! More than pootie tang too, which is saying alot. lol

I am hoping he continues to do ok, no one bothered him in the least, in fact he even evicted the poor tomini tang from his rock home. Never thought I'd see the day!@

Mustard and yellow tangs are still doing well, I think I have found the prefect combination of tangs finally.

Only bad thing is the filefish ate the three cinnamon paly grande polyps I had in this tank. :-(
I still have five polyps from that batch in the 40b so its not totally lost but still didn't make me happy. i never thought they would eat polyps that were so big, but I was wrong. lol No more polyps in this tank. lol

Woot for the perfect Tang combo! Would you say the tank is done now for stocking? Oh, I think you wanted to Dd a few more Chromis, right?

Yep, was thinking a few more chronis or some anthias. lol BUT I have another chromi in the overflow so we are down to 5 that can swim around and one who is trapped. But yeah, I am gonna wait awhile and see where i'm at in a few weeks and go from there.
My next priority is figuring out whats wrong with the corals, I think i will take the biopellets off line before i go back to t5's, just to see if its the lights or pellets. They just dont look as good as they did under the t5's I had for the 125g and the water is like 100% better as far as parameters.

Thanks for reading red, I appreciate it!!
