So...I have to ask the question, have you or are you going to return some of those fish? In my years of coming to this site, looking for answers, I have grown to take the advice of these people as gospel. So if they think you are overstocking this tank, you probably are.
Since you are new to the hobby, here is my one main tip I have. Find a mentor. What I mean by that is find a person or persons at a LFS
that you trust, and only take their advice. There are a lot of ppl at lfs
that dont have a clue about SW
or think they do and give terrible advice.
How do you find a mentor you ask? Get some basic questions about SW
tanks. Look for them on this site, then see how the majority of members on this site have answered them. Now go to the lfs
and ask the salespersons these same questions and see what type of answers you get. If you get answers that are totally contradicting to what youve read on here, find another person to ask. Once you find a person that answers your questions correctly, tell them about your tank, your exp and then start picking their brain for advice. Then every time you go in that store, seek that person out and use their advice over and over. Its important to use the same person, because you will find out people in this hobby will give contradicting advice, but if you use the same resource over and over, and it works, dont change. Usually this type of person is more interested in the hobby and welfare of your fish, and not in selling you stuff you dont need.
Once you get more experience it will be easy to pick out the people that dont have a clue, the people that have some experience, and the people that really know what they are talking about. But for now, if I were you, Id find a mentor.
Anywho, hope this helps and welcome to a world of constant frustration and love.
