No triggers are on the list. Oddly only 1 tang if that
I'm sure this is down the line if at all so maybe by then you will have your purple tang If u don't mind keeping us updated on how he acts with your tank
Oh and the two bags of pods
+ from reefcleaners has done a wonderful job of seeding the tank. I can see some on the glass. Some days more than others. I also now have a hermit in a snail shell. He spent the better part of a week eating the snail.
sorry so late of a response, water main busted overnight in our basement
but in reference to the lionfish, hes fed on a need to basis, since they are "gulpers" their bellies tend to swell up after eating, so i simply feed, then wait for his belly to deflate...usually translates to roughly 2 feedings a week, maybe 3 if hes especially hungry. the tusk is fed the same garlic pellets as the others, although it took a few days and mysis shrimp to convince him to eat after purchase. i feed him 5-6 pellets a day. yes probably a bit much for a 2 inch juvenile but he eats every one and im trying to fattened him up for growth
i know youre attached to your cichlids but once you switch your 125 over to salt you wont regret it. just the sheer choice of fish that you have with a 125 will be exciting... let alone the sight of a coralline filled tank
ok off to build a turf-scrubber now
