Hey Steve you missed it, I listed two Maxi jet 900's as well. I'm thinking about adding one more to help defeat this Cyano, but the tank will be pretty ugly with three powerheads! Any suggestions?

I know some say the tank is too small for the tang, the LFS talked me into it. He's doing really well so I'm not concerned. I also understand that my bioload is maxed out. No more fish for me.

I did not know about the camelback shrimp though, that stinks. Nothing I can do unless I get rid of them?

Thanks again for the tips.

Bill

See if you can trade it in for a Peppermint shrimp. Until you get it out it wouldn't be wise to add any corals.

The problem with the tang will come when it starts growing. It will simply not have enough room to get all the swimming it needs to stay healthy. If only someone could breed a dwarf variety everyone would be happy

I personally think the 2 MJ900's coupled with the canister is a decent amount of flow.

Problem there is they will most often stunt their growth due to the tank size constraints which will lead to even more problems. Unfortunately the effects are not usually noticed until it's too late.

Agreed, Sorry MrBill I didn't see that

Cheers

Thanks guys, you've got me thinking about the tang...
Maybe if it gets too big, I'll just get a bigger tank.

I changed the direction of my two powerheads last night and I think I may have finally found a "sweet spot" to stop that dreaded cyano...I hope.
