Lol I don't currently have a qt up and running and I guess I'm just gambling...I know I shouldn't but it seems so much easier to remove a fish from the small tanks if necessary when the 125g requires a partial breakdown to get a fish out.

Don't follow my lead though, LOL, qt if you can.

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

Ok thanks!

I was also Had one more QT question, LOL. When a fish is already in QT, and you add another fish, that isn't a big deal because you will just be treating the whole tank for the disease anyway if you get one, right? Sorry if this sounds confusing.

Yep. I had the anthias in the qt for a week then added the chromis and midas. I restarted the qt clock for the anthias when the others were added. There was a chance the newer fish had something and it could have been passed to the anthias so I just kept him in the qt for longer to be sure he was clean.

Thanks very much! The name totally slipped my mind. I've been eying them on LA for awhile now and finally saw some in person so I grabbed them. I love blue in my tank, now to find some excellent blue zoos...I've gotten some blue ones this week but nothing like I want.

Thanks guys! I'm very excited to get the cloves and the plate coral, I've been looking at them for weeks online.
