Question stock levels

Hey guys,

ok i've been up and running for about 4 months now and have my tank stocked i think that i may have gotten carried away in my 30 gal bow front. heres what i have a maroon clown a skunk back psuedacromis a tiger watch goby and a long spine urchine and of course three turbos and a few small hermit crabs. as far as corals i have a single mushroom frag a small frag of zoos two pieces of bubble coral and rock covered in green star polyps. I was wondering where to go from here if i can add anything else? I want to add a few more coral but i'm not sure on how to proceed.

Thanks,
Ben

You can add coral all day long as long as there's space IMO. Hemits, crabs, and shrimp too. Coral and CUC (clean up crew) don't add anything to your bio-load.

What are your nitrate readings by the way?

when i tested the tank this morning everything was sitting at 0 and it has been this way since i cycled my tank. I do a weekly water change of 20% and haven't had any issues with nitrates nitrates or amonia.

Good to go then. Heck, add a blenny or goby if you like.

Bicolor blenny will perch on the rocks. Cute fish. A fang blenny will swim out front. I like the canary/fang blenny personally. Look'm up as there are others too. Yellow, blue and yellow, etc. On the gobies, you can do a clown goby (yellow or green most available). Small and perches also. Or a shrimp goby - he'll hang out out the bottom near an opening to a cave. If your rock is on the bottom of the glass and not on the sand, he and a pistol shrimp together might be nice too.

The only thing is your Psydochromis, I have one and it rules the tank. My gobies are all in hiding so that the chromis don't kill them.
