That is annoying. I didn't know that about the wrasses I was thinking for getting rid or parasites ect so not to fussed about getting rid that one. I didn't realise the bicolor got that big. I want an angel of some kind, any ideas?

Yeah it sucks because i think the cleaner wrasse is super cool. You could get a flame angel, they look amazing and stay smaller... But i think the smallest is a cherub angel, they look cool too. Just search live aquaria's dwarf angel section and there will be tons of options

I have a pygmy angel that I love and it doesn't get big. Perfect for a small tank!

I was against this but couldnt really not as it would upset him. Is this a good idea to put in the tank or will it affect it in anyway?

Isit possible to over cycle the tank and the ammonia eating bacteria die off due to starvation then when you add fish it will cycle all over again?

This is more or less why I'm not a fan of needing to see 4 ppm Ammonia in a tank in a cycle. If your tank begins to show trates, then you are good to slowly start adding fish... The bb will slowly establish as you do this. Whether or not you cycle seeing .5 ppm or 4 ppm of ammonia, you can't just add an entire livestock of fish into your tank... It has to be slow either way.
