I posted this question before, but I think it got lost in another thread.....
Anyway, I'm back, and nearly fully recovered from surgery, so I've been working on the 125g tank which I bought, second-hand, approximately six weeks ago. I've added more LR
to it, and that LR
now totals ~140lbs. Is that enough? I also added ~30lbs of CC; I tried to switch it all over to LS
, but that was done during my recovery period, and (for all sorts of comical and tragic reasons) it just didn't happen. I've resigned myself to frequent vacuuming of the substrate, but don't mind that at all. The new LR
was added yesterday, and I took readings today: pH 8.3/sg
I plan to let it run for awhile before I add any livestock and check readings again in a week or so. I'm going on vacation on Monday, so the wait will be painless!
I think I have a list of the fish I want for the aquarium, but would welcome any comments or suggestions on the list. Also, how long should the time period be between adding fish? (I have a QT set up as well) And, in what order should these fish be put into the tank? Please note: I am a patient person, and would not fuss even if it should take a year to add these fish! Here's my list:
5 green chromis (always loved the look of a school of fish)
1 coral beauty
1 yellow tang
2 fridman's dottybacks
1 lawnmower blenny (only fish in the tank now)
