I don't see it being that much of a problem if you are monitoring daily

I agree. Keep an eye on it and you should be fine. Moving a couple rocks from another tank is also a good idea.

I left my 55g up and running fishless for several months and it stayed cycled. I think it depends on how strong the beneficial bacteria were to begin with.

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

Cool, thanks!

So the new fishes will be moved into the hypo'ed QT with rock etc. I can't wait to go get some new friends, I will update later on which ones I get.


On another note, I have been thinking about the Tang situation. I think I am going to go back to my original plan of stocking this tank with a Yellow Tang, not a Purple. I love the Purple, but if I am going to try to have two Zebrasomas, I would rather try it with a Yellow and Scopas. They are actually have a sale on their Yellow Tangs at the LFS.

Okay!

I took out maybe 3/4 a cup of sand from the 55g, and a took out a little "rock branch" I had. I hope that is enough.

I was a little worried though because while I was taking the sound out, and putting it in the QT, I had a mini sand storm . Probably won't be a problem though. Additionally, while I was taking sand out, a few pieces fell on my mushrooms. I know that if a coral is covered by sand (like from Carey's evil Goby ) there will be an issue, but can a few pieces harm it?


Thanks for reading all!

Purple is a lot calmer... I'm glad my yellow is gone.

Little pieces are ok for sure! If you have been followibg my tank build, i had to remove 37 lbs from the 30 into my 66. Naturally, i also had a sandstorm. All corals are fine though

And once last month my pistol shrimp burried some of my corals. Still, fine!

Really? Well then I may go back to the Purple, lol. I just went to the pet shop, and unfortunately, did not buy anything. I wasn't overly impressed with the health of some of the stock this time, and just figured I would be better off ordering from LA. Sorry.

But that does mean that an order from LA is in my future. That's something to look forward to. Unfortunately, LA's only Purple Tang in right now is $230.00 and I think it is medium/large. I was hoping to get a smaller one.

Kio- do you think a Purple would be okay with my Scopas if it were smaller than the Scopas?


Thanks.
