I'm a n00bie here on the forums, so don't pick on me too hard.
I have a 90gal Fish Only Saltwater aquarium. No live rock, just some artificial coral pieces and some real rock for decoration. I've had the tank up and running since March of this year and over the last 3 months i've restocked after a major Ich issue.
I'm using biomedia/trickel filter thats rated for a 125gal tank and a nice sized protiene skimmer in my sump. I also bought a huge UV
filter (I want to say 36 watts, but can't remember) and have it running. After Christmas I'm planning on getting a RO
system, until then I'm stuck with Tap water (but I do 40% water changes every 2 weeks).
I'm feeding them Krill, MYSIS Shrimp, Clams, the Green Seaweed, and on the occasion parts of a tiger shrimp or muscles. I soak the seaweed in Kent Marine Zoe every night and then feed it to them in the morning.
Currently I have the following fish in the tank.
-Volitan Lionfish (~ 3-4 ")
-Dogface Puffer (~ 3")
-Foxface (~ 4-5")
-Blue Regal Tang (~ 3-4")
-Niger Trigger (~ 3")
-Flame Angelfish (~ 3")
-Lunare Wrasse (~ 4")
-Clownfish (~ 2")
We are definately getting rid of the clownfish, before he becomes food. We are playing it by ear right now with the Flame Angelfish, and just keeping an eye out. Both of these were the only things to survive the previous wipeout (and why they haven't left the tank yet).
The only real issues I've had so far is that (of course) the Lionfish wants to eat pretty much 3x a day instead of 3x a week, and keeping him from eating his weight in food is a challenge. Any advice here?
Also had a little bit of agression issue from the Niger Trigger to the Lionfish. He hasn't acutally nipped or lunged at the Lion, he just keeps invading it's personal space, And the Lion, doesn't really care for that in the least.
So since I'm new at this I could use any advice (positive/negative/other) to help me keep going with my new hobby. So please lemmie know.
