I am new to this... and rapidly losing faith in the guy at the fish store! I told him I was new and was hoping for sound advice.
My set up (it was gifted to me so I don't know all the details...) is a 75 gal
tank with two big "Nemo" filters (you know the kind that spin around on the inside
- the main difference being these both have like mesh baskets over the intake.) I have a bubble stone, base rock, live sand and several large live rocks. I have three other not so live rocks as well. My crew includes 7 hermit crabs, 12 snails, 1 cleaner shrimp, 1 chocolate chip starfish, one blue damsel, one domino damsel and now two maroon clownfish and an anemone...
The anemone has sort of put his foot through a gap in a couple of the stones and is over twice the size it was when it came home. The fish have taken right to it (yes, all the fish) and it really takes over one end of the tank. I wish I would have known about waitng. All my tests were perfect for a couple of months after adding live rock and before adding fish. And to be perfectly honest with you it is still perfect. I know that is probably because there are 4 fish in a 75 gal
I would LOVE advice!!! I have switched fish stores and then new guy was the one who recommended the anemone so I am worried that perhaps I am not getting the right direction. I would love to add more live rock, some additional little critters and maybe another fish. What do you all recommend???
Thanks in advance!
