Woot Woot

55g is all done, I got a sailfin tang in there for now, probably about 5-6 inches and plenty of room to swim, it was cheap and needed something to keep the cycle till I get the right puffer fish, when the time comes I will put my tang into the 75g till it gets too big then I will donate it to my LFS display tank, or some one I know will take care of it.

Just fyi...tangs need big tanks due to swimming habits, not size. At least six feet.

Because I my tank finally cycled and I needed something to keep the bacteria going, so fish waist was the best option for me, I know a guy at my LFS, they have a 350g tank about 7ft long and he will be happy to take it from me when it gets to big

Used my last silver side, I like donating fish to my LFS anyway and nursing fish back to health.
