Just thought Id share some pics of the early additions to my tank. (100g FOWLR
with 15g fuge and 15g sump)
I am a bit limited as to what I buy as my LFS
doesnt speak English. CUC for example has proved to be a major pain. When I asked for crabs they stared blankly (none of them have any in their tanks). When I asked for shrimp they tried to give me a mantis and when I asked for any kind of snail they gave me a bottle of snail killing liqiud..
Over the course of a few weeks I have ended up with the following:
'other' Tang - (I think it most closely resembles a Scopus - advice much appreciated)
Both Tangs were happy in the same tank for the 5mins I spent watching them. In my tank the 'other' tang was a bit aggressive at first but has since calmed down... Fingers crossed.
Arabian Cowrie x2
The Cowries were the closest I could get to a CUC. From that point of view they are doing a mega job. Tearing through my substrate removing trails of algae and motoring all over the rocks doing much the same. Surely too good to be true? What's the downside? I have no coral/inverts and I have heard they can be a problem in that department...
Feeding a mixture of brine shrimp, pellets, frozen (supermarket) prawns and a 1" x 1" square of Nori per day... Too much? Not enough?
Anyway - I digress.
