5-6" correct? I don't think I've seen any pictures of a school of them.

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

Ok so I accliamated and then moved tomini over to the 125g. A day ahead of schedule but I really wanna get the 55g cleaned up and ready for sale.

So far so good, the blue tang is afraid of it as I figured and the yellow is acting fine, no aggression so far. The lights are gonna go to blues in a minute so hopefully that wills settle everyone down even more.

Now to get back to boiling live rock and killing aiptasias. Live rock stinks when its hit with boiling water by the way if you were curious. yech...

Tomorrow I will hit it with the pressure washer and then leave it out in the sun to bake. That should get rid of the little buggers. lol

So I think I got all the nems, lol, a few pots of boiling water and 3 days soaking in fresh water. woot!

I took a few shots of the new rock I will be incorporating into the 125. I figure i'll have about 250lbs in here now and that should enough. Needed more perches and spots for corals so hopefully my plan works out.

It's now snail picking time. lol or I should go do it now anyways. I wanna empty the 55g and get all the aipstasia growing in the sand out now. I was gonna take all the inverts, and theres a lot of em out, put themin my cube and then try to nuke the temperature in the 55g to kill the aiptaisa.

Does that sound like a good plan? I mean if it were 95 degrees in the tank wouldnt that kill off everything left in it?

Thanks. me either. just gotta get rid of the 55g. the guy who was interested flaked out on me. :-( so back to the drawing board trying to find a buyer. All this does is annoy me, I'm never gonna get this 90g going unless I get rid of the 55g.

I know, it is a pain when people flake out. I was once selling my old iPhone On eBay. One person outbidded another high bidder and then he decided he didn't want it.GRRRRR lol.
