I know all about how big they will get.
My old 125 gal
tank is still set up in my dads florida room, and has my origional salwater fish still in it, my 12" panther grouper, a 10 " spotted grouper and a 5 inch huma huma.
However when I went to school they wouldnt let me keep the tank of course at my new place.
BUT IM MOVING NOW!
All the fish are many years old in this tank.
I plan on putting these fish in the tank when they get big enough, but that wont be for a while. I couldnt find a fuzzy dwarf any bigger than 2 inches so I just planned to raise him. The v-tail was just for company and something around the same size as him so I could raise them together. And they are perfect tank mates, never once has either been aggressive towards the other.
I cant just add them to the big tank as much as I would ikte too, or they would just be another meal.
I planned to raise them till they were about 5 or 6 inches in the 55 gal
, and then move them in with the big boys and turn the 55 into a reef.
I have had no problems with my other tanks ever, but none have ever been as small as this tank. I know it isnt the right size tank to raise these fish in, but I have no option until I move in a couple weeks, and it is surley better than the LFS
where the lion had been for months in a 6x6" cube. And the fish are small enough right now that they can comfortably swim around in this tank, however I kow that wont last more than a few months.
I am moving around may 5th-10th so I will be setting up somthing bigger for them ASAP.
In the mean time, after the water changes, whats next?.....can I treat them? How should I treat them with inverts in the tank?......should I but another tank and make it a QT? I hate to setup anymore tanks with this move being so close, the fish have been great for months, I wish they would have been good for a week or two more!
ALSO.....I noticed that my lions fins on either side are a little frayed, and that as he hunts around the tank he always gets stung a little by this anemone. Is this going to hurt him, because it seems like it happens everyday. As he swims past it I seem him barley touch it and then dart away.
