If memory serves me right she is taking down the 29 BC, 60, and the 125 but keeping the others right? Sorry about the butterfly though .

Thats the plan as far as taking tanks down. The only possible change would be if I can get a custom stand made for the 60g making it easier to work on, but thats a big maybe. For the cost of a custom stand I can most likely get a nuvo30 instead and not have to worry about working below as its all in one.

Update on the new and empty biocube: It has ammonia readings so there was definitely some die off. I'm monitoring the parameters until it goes down to zero and then I will begin moving the 60g fish around.

Also excited for this week to get started, I will be getting a blonde naso hopefully, if I can find one locally from a reputable shop. If all else fails i will just get a naso, I like their body style and color, not as cool as the blonde but if thats what I can find then i'll be happy.

I would wait for the Blonde if that is what you really want.

ehh, a blonde would be great, but the naso would be good for me. I'm not too too particular. lol I'll be at a fish store for friday and can stop at another one if they dont have what I want. I am taking a trip over to orlando so there are quite a few lfs out that way so I'm hopeful. Cannot wait to get the tangs in the tank! lol
The tank is very active, those little chromis are awesome! Always schooling and swimming everywhere, the midas blenny is also always swimming too.

LOL yeah.... Did have two jump into an overflow but we took apart the plumbing and got them out. So far no nipping between them or anything but they are still pretty small. I was thinking of getting a few more, I've never seen schooling fish like this before in my tanks and its so pretty!

Chromis suck! They always die. Get some smaller anthias.

I keep going back and forth on getting several for mine. I've done small groups, 5 and 7, and always end up with one. Never saw any aggression either. Thinking of giving it one last try with maybe 9 or 11.
