LOL. I try to sit in front of the tank and let them get used to me but they aren't coming around. I guess just more time is needed, they have only been in a couple months. I also have a ton of hiding spots in the rocks and they can swim behind the rockwork for now. I am planning on adding another 50lbs of rock in today or very soon so that should help get them front and center. lol

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

My kole tang is the most antisocial creature on he planet. I only see him if I slowly walk into the room, and when I enter his field of vision he goes straight to the PVC pipe lol

The anthias will bring them out. I put mine in the tank and that's when the goby and fox face started coming out all the time. That fish is really social and for some reason other fish follow it's lead...

Hope youre right Kio the anthias I have was a bit of a scaredy cat when I first put him in the 55g. He hid with the lights out for a couple days. Now he comes right up to the turkey baster I use to feed. lol

He probably isn't as scared as much now because he has Chromis and a Blenny friend that make him feel more secure.

Good deal. I'm so looking forward to putting them in the main tank. Tuesday is the official 2 week mark for the chromis and blenny and 3 weeks on Monday for the anthias. I've been scrutinizing the fish since they came and so far it's all clear. And the sooner they come out the sooner I can get to the 90g build. lol I keep going in the garage to check it out, I'm so psyched!

I know, I can't wait to see the 90g come along! It sounds like you are going to have some pretty cool fish in it!

Yep, I was just now checking out fish for it. LOL Since I'm pretty stocked on all my tanks this one will mean I can go fish shopping again. I'm still tweaking the stocklist though, may go with a different butterfly than what I originally planned. Keep finding cool fish to add .....

Definitely! I change my mind all of the time about what fish I want. I can't wait to see "Carey 90g FOWLR Build" under new posts again! It will be fun to follow.
