Not a good choice for a new tank. Need a large pod population and mature tank. Pods
are their main food. otherwise they will starve.
Stay away they will die. Extremely hard to keep by even "experts"
Like mandarins they need a very mature tank. Not a good choice for a new tank.
As long as you do not have small fish it will be fine. Otherwise they will be it's dinner. Be aware they are nocturnal so you will not see a lot of it.
Worst possible fish you could possibly think about getting. Close to 100% death rate in aquariums.
Now you are talking. Good choice.
You have picked some of the hardest fish to keep.
Pick some fish from this list.
Once you have picked some better fish post them here or check the compatability guides. Someone here will more than happy to help you out.
The 1" of fish per gal
does not apply to SW
. A better "rule" would be 3-4" per 10 gallons, but it really comes down to the type of fish. Also just making sure you are aware that you should only add 1-2 fish at a time, about a month apart to your tank so it can handle the increased bio-load.
2-Also upon mixing the salt, we did notice that the water was a bit foggy, which eventually died down due to the salt disolving, however it is still a teenie bit foggy. Will it go away or is there someway to make the water a lot clearer?
It will eventually clear up. In the future make sure you mix your water in a separate container and let it mix for 24 hours min so it will be properly oxygenated and mixed.
Be sure you cycle your tank correctly before you add fish or you will have a quick death.
