Just a question, could I add green chromis to my tank? If I can, how many could I add without being overstocked? This would be instead of the midas Blenny so my fish would be 1 flame hawk, 1 bangaii cardinal, and 1 six line wrasse.

Hmm..i like them..but i think they look cooler in larger schools in bigger tanks. I'd say 2-3 though.

Dude..bought a flamehawk today to copy you..great fish

It's not for me, it's for my mom, I personally don't like them unless they are in schools. I'm worried about adding three, I'd like some more opinions on it if anyone would care to share their input.

Your bro told me, can't wait to check out the thread!

Haha your such a nice kid! Haha why does she want them? I mean they are cool, but i agree, they are really only cool if kept in a school. Maybe you could get 4 or so smaller ones? Those things can get big though! Also, i know you have nitrataphobia so that many fish might be bad for you

Lol she just practically gave me a laptop, well not really, I have to babysit a month for free and she has a job but it's still an amazing gift so id like to be nice and get some stuff, plus Its super cool for me too. I would get three max, not sure if I could mentally handle anymore lol. Your right, I have that phobia, It's horrible, but at least it's a better phobia to have.

Well, I have an issue. I came back from a 3 day vacation, and my bryopsis issue has gotten worse. I'm doing bigger pwc from now on, but I just don't think it will slow it. I'm not raising my mag and I've already tried h2o2.. So I'm going to keep tearing it out but it's starting to get tough..

Worst case scenario, I have to remove things that contribute to nutrient levels, fish.. Don't want to do that whatsoever but I don't want a messy tank... Best case, it stops by itself and I keep doing my thing. Any advice? I'm pretty worried, as there aren't many great ways to get rid of it and it seems it comes back for most people.

Maybe try this? I don't know. I hope you get it taken care of. I know how aggravating a messy tank can be. I hate it when my tank looks messy.

Thanks, I'm going to try to add an emerald crab and I can borrow a lettuce slug from my reef club, so I might be okay for a little bit. I'll try that before going nuts and being a coral only tank, or one fish.

They are more of a threat to shrimp. It's worth a shot anyways, if not, it's just an 8$ meal.. The hawk hasn't eaten any of my snails or hermits yet.
