NOt saying anything bad about singapore. But almost every tank I have seen from singapore is grossly overstocked and has large angels in with corals. I wonder if this is a fad or something over there.

Several of the fish in your tank, have to go. That is 12 fish in a 40g aquarium, way too many. You will constantly battle ammonia nitrite problems and ick with that kind of overcrowding.
Your tank looks beautiful Len but Kevin gives good advice. You have so many fish and corals at your disposal Why not upgrade to a 300 gallon tank so you can enjoy all your fish without the stress induced disease?

I really like that star and sponge pic.

len, I use several different boards. They all have members from singapore. I was not trying to insult you in any way. I am extremely impressed you guys keep those large angels with corals. I personally wish I could afford large angels for my tank, however I would probalby feel really bad when they killed all my corals. Their animals too.

Len,
Just because something is beautiful and you can afford it, does not mean that you have the right conditions to keep it in the proper manner. I seem to remember some posts from you a month or so back, all dealing with the same type issues. I think you are self-perpetuation your own problem.
Fish need room, they do not like crowded conditions and they definitely are crowded in there.

We are just saying that your tank is overstocked. This is not a personal attack on you, and I can assure you that everyone is trying to help you. What type of maintenance do you do to keep a fish load this large. If this is a common thing I would assume you have a massive protien skimmer and do bi-weekly 10% water changes. IF those two things are not done, you water will become poluted with too much fish waste, you nitrates will go very high, possibly even you ammonia and nitrites. This will lead in the eventually death of your fish. If you can afford all the beautiful fish, I am sure you can afford a 150-300 gallon tank. That way you can stock it with several fish.

My goby is doing fine Len..he is enjoying the 175 gallon tank now that he is used to it. All the other fish are doing fine as well..not quite sure why you asked.

I am sorry if you took offense to what I wrote, but it seems to me like you are looking for a "magic pill" to fix your problems. You asked for advice and then don't like the advice you receive....

No where was I rude...you can consider it insulting if you wish to. But since your post on 12-28 of "fish Ich and Dies off" where you lost a blue tang,yellow tang, blue face angel and a clown fish, there have been a total of 6 topics started by you where you have lost fish...Do you detect a pattern here? And roughly 9 fish missing or dead.

Yes, Reefrunner and Fishfreak are nice, believe it or not, I am too (most of the time) but you do not care to limit the number of fish in your tank to a reasonable amount,ieven if it is better for the fish, all you want to look at are fish. If you do not heed the advice that was given to you, you will get to look at fish...dead ones.
