So, general consensus is a wrasse will be ok without a lid in my 125g? Are there any wrasses that have higher jump rates than others? I was looking at the exquisite wrasse and a few other colorful ones.

I'm gonna add slowly and methodically for now on, at least I hope I can keep to that. LOL

I figure getting another fish this week or next and going the qt route again. I will only buy multiple fish if I go for a schooling type, like the blue reef chromis which I have to add all at once. BUT! if I order online then I will be forced to order more fish as to save on the $35 shipping they jack you with.

I know I want a midas blenny, 3 of the chromis, maybe a kole tang (can get him locally but would prefer to have the guarantee) a wrasse and maybe another fish. I'm still in love with the anthias. I think I would get another squareback and I for sure would have to order that online.

Putting m,ultiple fish into qt worries me though, if just one fish has something then ALL the fish will have something. I also have 2 10g tanks I could use and theres always the 55g in the garage I could set up, but it gets awful hot in there. lol

What do you guys think?
Ask the supplier if the fish are all on the same system, like petco, etc. If a fish five tanks away is diseased, all the fish have been exposed. Then you can decide on separate orders or not.

I took a leap of faith with this one, I'm hoping he'll make it through acclimation is all. But he is a very pretty fish, as big as my yellow tang.

I will say that I bought two turbo snails for my cube though. Maybe they can help with the never ending algae on the back panel. lol
