Oh you mean the frag racks? Yep, it gives them a chance to get a little bigger and multiply before I move them down into the tank. Just started using the frag racks a few weeks ago but they are working out just fine so far.

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

Other than a few issues here and there with some corals the tank is running well. I'm still on the fence about adding the final fish though. I was thinking either 2 or 3 more blue reef chromis OR 2 female squareback anthias'.

What do you guys think? Or should I get just one anthias? or if you all have any other suitable suggestions for fish chime in! Always looking for new ideas.

Thanks for reading and thanks for watching too!!

If I were to chose I would go with 2 Female Anthias.

Thanks guys, thats what I was thinking too. I'll see if I can't get the lfs to order me two. woot! That will finish up the stocking for this tank finally. A year almost later and I'm still stocking. Talk about taking your time. LOL

I agree that the one corals look like acans!

I love your Yuma mushrooms on the first frag stand.

Chromis will kill each other off. They are like wolves that they kill the weakest ones of the pack. I started with 5 chromis and am down to two- but they are very happy and will often school with my clowns!
