How can I tell when I'm overstocked?

Well there is the overstocked by crowding and the overstocked by biological filtration cap. The bio one you can tell when you start to have ammonia or nitrites or your nitrates are out of control.

I did some research and it seems the dartfish are jumpers. :-( It will be either anthias or darts if I can find any that don't jump LOL

I think with 20g pwcs a week i should be ok as far as my biological filtration. And I don't think my tank will be physically overstocked . I don't think so anyways. Most of the fish I'll have are gonna be kinda small

Today I will hopefully get the tank cleaned on the underside and get it painted and sealed. Thats my goal for today lol
Then I just gotta wait for my stuff to start arriving!

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

those purple tilefish are notoriously hard to get eating.

Really? I hadn't seen that discussed before. Figures. I'll do some more research. Thanks for the heads up!

they're also notorious jumpers. I just saw your jumper worry.

grrrrrr I'm having no luck picking fish it seems. But at least I know I like the tangs. They will probably be the first thing I add once I'm up and running.

Got another question !!

what kind of light do I need for my refugium in my sump? I've been looking at this
JBJ Macro Glo Adjustable Refugium Light - AquaCave

Will a small clip on light from home depot be enough? Or do I need an actual light like the link?

Thanks! Sorry for soo many questions!
