75 Gal FOWLR Cycling Complete

In the tank now I have no new growth on my rock yet... Looking into new lights now... to see if this is a problem I only have the petsmart light strip now.

I have a couple fo concerns it is amazing the difference in prices from local fish stores ten miles apart then even worse compared to online, I wil go online to buy due to price for fish but wow this scares me what has been your experice in online livestock purchase?

I have

three small Damselfish
one peppermint shrimp (3.50 online or 8.00 lfs)
a couple of snails
one Serpent Sea Star, Fancy Red



I would like to have

Boxfish
Puffers
Tangs & Surgeons
Angelfish


I will of course make sure anything would be compatable with one another

more concerned with how they would travel being shipped i realy like this site, compared to most http://www.liveaquaria.com

Watcht the boxfish, they can pioson the tank if stressed or dies. I haven't heard many say they ever had any problems with boxfish.
Puffer might eat your inverts. I don't know too much about the other live stock.....Good luck....

I would avoid the box fish and puffer. Tangs are fine depending on the kind/tank size. Read up before selecting a angel fish. Most are coral munchers. Just some advise: Slow down. Brand new tank that just finished the cycle and you already have stars in it.

I thought the same, but he is a cleaner not a "star" fish I had never seen one before I went to the lfs, did not buy until i went to another lfs and asked got same info very hardy and great for rock cleaning all the dead junk off rock.

he seems to be doing great likes to hide... need to get pics to show this tank, it is gonna be cool... but yea i am reading alot about live stock before i kill something and check my water daily now

thanks for the heads up

and others thanks for info on the website .. I will try something small and more hardy maybe some more peppermint shrimp from them to see how it goes from buying them online
