in a species only tank they are ok, but not in a community tank. they will surely die.

Update time!

I'll start with the lights! I just ordered my new bulbs, I'm so excited.
I went with

6 ATI aquablue specials
4 ATI Blue Plus'
2 ATI Purple Plus

I'm gonna give the purple ones a shot and they were only $15 a peice! Woot!

Between that and the discount at BRS on the group buy I was able to come in just under $200, $50 cheaper than if I hadn't come across the deals.

The tomini tang is still freaking me out. Dug a huge deep hole where it hangs out in the QT. I plan on moving him over to this tank this weekend.

Also gonna start dosing for alkalinity, so this should be an adventure.

And finally , I added a literal TON of photos to my albums today so take a peek if you're interested.

Thanks everyone!

LOL. Noper. NOT even close. Just thanking everyone for reading and following.

Actually now is a good time to reveal my next fish I have finally decided on.

4 Blue reef chromis This is for sure
1 Midas Blenny This is for sure
1 Anthias- prefer a squareback again
1 Blue Asessor- this is a ehh maybe if I have enough room.

Other than that I will just be adding corals and possibly a star fish.

Think that sounds about right? I think that'll bring out my clowns more and get more action in the tank. All it is now is my yellow tang being followed everywhere by my blue tang. They are inseparable. I hope the new tang gets along with them. another thing to worry about.

Hmm I forgot about that. That's a tough one actually. I thought three originally but then figured one more wouldn't hurt and would probably get them schooling. I may have to go with 5 and be a bit overstocked. By just a tad. Theres still plenty of swimming room as most of my current fish are hiders. LOL

I would go with 5 on the schooling side of things. I might get a pair of bluegreen chromis to add to my current 3 to maybe help schooling. They school about two thirds of the time, but kinda stay 3 inches away from each other most if the time.

Blue reef chromis look amazing. So do the anthias

I don't know about the anthias but a school of 6 would be amazing and going to happen in my 75. You have the room in your 125
