Update on my powder blue. He has been in my tank for a week now and is doing very well. He is a pig and goes nuts whenever I put food in the tank. I have fed him an alternating diet of marine flakes, krill pellets, fozen mysis and frozen brine all soaked in a vitamin enhanced garlic liquid called Garlic Elixer. I just ordered some algae sheets and Spirulina flakes a few days ago and will immediately start feeding him the algae to keep him healthy. I lost my small clown though because he swam into the jet stream of my MJ1200 and got bounced into my LR
. He got very stressed and died within 15 minutes of the trauma. My other O. Clown, on the other hand, is doing great. At first he would only swim in the very back corner of the tank and would not really come out. Now he looks to have gotten used to his surroundings and swims around quite a bit. He is also eating well and doesn't seem to be too bothered by his substantially larger tank mate.
I am getting ready to do my first water change since my fish have been added and will be doing a 10 gal
change in a day or two so now I'm starting to think about future tankmate possibilities.
From reading Fenner's book, I didn't get the impression that mixing a PBT with a Yellow tang is out of the question. I'm not too sure about introducing a YT though since I hear that the two tangs may fight.
So if I can't add a yellow tang, I was thinking about adding either a Heniochus or an Auriga Butterfly as my last big fish. As for smaller fish, I was thinking about a coral beauty, royal gramma, 2x banggai Cardinal, and either another O. clown or a sixline wrasse.
Would I be overcrowding my tank with this list?
