I dosed my tank with amphipods, copepods and rotifers. It's a food chain.

Can the pod just live off of live rock, or do they need something else? Also, do you know which kind of pods I should buy (in the link above). Thanks!

UPDATE

Everything is going well in the tank. Everybody is out and happy. If you guys are wondering why my Clown's fins are tattered, its because of my Triggerfish (when I still had him). I like my lights, they are nice and bright. I hope that I have quick coral growth!

If I do a 90-95% water change on my 55g (temporary QT), will that mess up the cycle? I didn't think so because most of the bacteria is on surfaces, but I figured I would run in by you guys.

I think that is all. Thanks for following.

I didn't use either of these. I bought from a local pod breeder. So I can't really tell you which is best from those products.

Thank you very much!

You can get a Scopas when you get your 180 or 220g!

AHhh I'm not sure if I will stock more tangs when I go bigger. I'd like a purple tang or maybe a clown tang if push came to shove. lol I really like the tangs I have now, three is a nice number. at least for me.
