Do they ever calm down at night or anything? Or are they always racing around, lol.

They probably make some of your other fish feel more secure! I read that a bunch of fish out and about let other specimens know a predator is not nearby.

Since there are so many chromis now, they tend to group up at the top of the water near the right overflow. Before they would race to a hiding spot when the lights went out. lol

racden: Nice going! thats the smart way to do it, unlike me, whenever I want something I charge it. Its a really really bad habit lol

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

I am a BIG, HUGE overfeeder. LOL

I tend to feed some tiny pellets early in the day and at 6pm they get frozen food. I also do massive water changes due to my horrible overfeeding. I do abput 60g on my 180g, so it works out. i still battle nitrates though.

Normally, you can feed once a day and be fine as long as you do appropriate changes. I also try not to feed flake very much, that i believe has the most phosphates in it.

I think the majority of ppl actually feed every other day these days adn their fish do just fine on that kind of schedule.

The chromi in the overflow has been in there a few months. lol 3 others have gotten in there and we pulled apart all the plumbing each time to get them out. Only thing is now the bulkheads are getting stripped so we cant get this guy out. lol I feel bad but he is eating and hides whenever we come near so he looks ok. I need to get new bulkheads and then we can try to get him out.

That's funny about that Chromis! Hey, the overflow is probably a decent size on the huge fish tank!
