I am glad I could help! I have seen people keeping Sixline's and Gramma's together successfully, but I would have a backup plan just in case something goes wrong.

Ok just an update it's been awhile. I'm currently cycling stuck on nitrites which seems to be normal. Ordered 5 stage rodi from brs which will be installed on Sunday. Also updated my bulbs for my fishneedit fixture 2 blue plus, purple plus, and a 10k.

Quick update nitrites were at .25 this morning so I'm thinking any day now. My next concern is I can probably catch all the live stock to acclimate for the transfer, but my emerald crab. I never see him and he stays buried in my live rock. I m probably just gonna get the parameters as close to the existing tank and move him over on the rock

New tank
I just need everything to grow. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with stocking. Current stock is 2 clowns and 1 watchman goby, 1 pistol 1 peppermint I'm liking 6 line, royal gramma, and orchid dotty back. I'm gonna probably add 2 out of the three but not sure which ones and what order.

Nitrates are down between 10-20, I guess the chaeto is working. After more research on fish I went with a filament fairy wrasse. No pic he's been hiding. I hear their jumpers so I'm gonna make a screen top with some white bridal vail.

Nitrates were a battle for me for the first 6 weeks of my tank being cycled. I always had ~20. The past few weeks it's been 0 so it may get better down the line
