the guy at our local fish store mentioned something about an auto feeder just for the antheas.

Yeah, they have a high metabolism and eat from the water column. I never saw the one I had for maybe three days, actually eat. So I don't know if it will take prepared foods right off or what. lol

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

They are beautiful fish though, I wish they were as hardy as Damsels!

I'm gonna give it another few days and maybe get the anthias if the midas doesnt come back in stock. The one I'm looking to get is the squareback anthias. Just like the last one I tried. They are so awesome!

OK! I think I may have come up with another stocking option.

I now have only Three blue reef chromis in my shopping cart on L.A. AND Three Lyretail anthias, 2 females and one male.

I need to make a quick decision though. I am ready to sell off my 55g and that's my qt tank. :-( I need the cash from the 55g to buy a stand for my 90g setup which means I can start THAT build.

SOOOO it kinda comes down to do I wanna start my 90g sooner or have the fish I want in the 125g?

Any input and opinions welcome, I'm completely stumped on which way to go.

thanks everyone!

stand for the 90 its got to cycle and harder to be talked out of if its got water in it.

I have the money for the fish separate. I would have to NOT sell the 55g so I have my qt tank for these fish. I would be waiting for the qt time to be over til I could sell the 55g again and move the 90g in place.
