hey guys, I was just wondering about my quarantine tank that I set up. I set up a small 5 gal
tank and aged the saltwater for a few days. Took out about a 1lb piece of live rock from my tank that has already cycled and has good parameters. I rubbed the HOB
filter one the rock to transfer some of the bacteria into the filter housing. My question is, how long do I need to wait before I can put a fish in there for quarantine?
Also, I have had my 55 gal
tank set up for about a month now. It has cycled already because all the live rock was already cured. I have tested my parameters a few times and have gotten good parameters. I have had 2 clowns, 4 hermits, 5 snails in there for about a week and a half and everything is going good. I want to add a few more fish but I want them to be very colorful. I have looked into the hippo tangs but I think from what I have read, my tank will be too small for that fish. I thought about a mandarin but I have concluded that that wont work either. Have you guys got any ideas for some docile, very colorful fish for my tank? I have looked at a flame angel but not sure if that would work or not... Thanks in advance!!
