Okay, so I wasn't able to get the tank to full hypo this weekend :bang head:, but I have been thinking about final stocking.

For final fish I was thinking:
Lamarck's Angel
1 male Squareback, 3 females
1 Mandarin (Not sure which kind yet. Probably whichever kind speaks to me at the moment of purchase )
1 Yellow Tang

Sound good to everyone? Too many fish? Too little? Should I add more fish? Less?

Thanks a lot, you guys are awesome!

Sounds good! i too considered the lamarcks angel because it's supposed to be reef safe.

I personally think you can add a few more fish, nothing large but maybe a couple smaller ones. You could use a goby and a blenny. LOL Then again, I think everyone can use a goby and a blenny.

Will do! Which kind of Gobies/Blennies would you recommend for this tank?

alot depends on if you like sifters. I have both kinds and they each have their plus's. my digging brown barred goby ( I call him the evil goby) makes HUGE mounds of sand and spits sand on my corals constantly. A plus for him is he is kind of larger than the small tank gobies and seems to fit in with the other fit perfectly. I'm actually liking the new sandsscape, it gives it a more realistic look I think. lol

Or you can go with a shrimp goby, maybe pair him with a shrimp. My pink spotted watchman doesn't do much swimming though and spends like 99% of his time in his rock house. But again. it's a larger goby that matches with the tangs and other larger fish.

You know I love my gobies and blennies but I think with the livestock you have planned those cute little ones will get lost in the tank pretty much. lol Just my opinion though.

Great suggestions! I really like the way your Brown Barred Goby's fins move, pretty cool fish that you don't see to often.

I also agree with one on the smaller Gobies, maybe a few for the 34g or 55g, that would be a better choice.

Ugggg, still wasn't able to get the tank down to full hypo today, I have been super busy. Will this mess up my treatment since it is already lower than 1.015?

Thanks.

Only downside I see is it will be a longer treatment period . So get it all the way down as soon as you can. Good luck .

I think the tank is around 1.009-1.010. Is it okay if it goes into the 1.010-1.011 range? Will it still work? Thanks everyone!

Nope . Now you need to keep up on your top offs and make sure you keep it at 1.009 or else it will give the ick a chance to survive.it shouldn't be too hard in that big of tank .

Yes ,it HAS to be at and stay at 1.008-1.009 ,,it can never go above that during the whole treatment..I always go down to .008 to give that little bit for evaporation
