I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Also order your Copepods so that you can have an established supply

Yep, I hope I don't forget to do that!

It is all of my followers' job to remind me before I order the fish, lol.

I'm thinking 4 weeks, does that sound ok?

Yep, maybe I remember because your Anthias was chasing the Chromis at first, but then he stopped. I am glad that never turned into a big problem.

UPDATE:

I finished putting the water back in the tank. I am now going to go play with my skimmer to get it where I want it.

Does adding the fish tonight sound to soon to you guys?

Thank you all for following, I really, really appreciate it!

If the water is close as far as parameters I would probably do it.Just be sure before you put anything in the 125g that you want it to stay in there.
with some fish you can't get them out unless you do a tank breakdown. lol And now is the best time to fidget with the equipment and all before it goes in.



When do you plan on ordering your fish from liveaquaria? And all together what did you plan on ordering?

The only parameter that is probably different is nitrates. My nitrates are lower in the 125g than in the 55g (bad me, I am working on getting a lot better on PWCs. From here on out I will try my very very best not to ever skip one ) . If I do a slow acclimation (a few hours) I should be good, right?

I hope to order form LA on Sunday if I am on schedule.
I want to order those two Wrasses, the Scopas, and the Lawnmower. I also want to order the corals above (maybe not all, but probably most of them).

Thanks!

Not sure if it matters, but in my experience the fish come from California, and the corals are shipped from Wisconsin. So I had to pay shipping for my fish and separate shipping for the corals. Just a heads up.

I think I know what you are talking about. I am going to pretend to buy them now and see where they ship from. Thanks for the heads up!
