Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but 11 fish in a 75 is going to be too much of a bioload. The hippo and sail fin tang need a bigger tank.

I'm in agreement with Mike. Both tangs should go, they need 100+ gallons just for one of them.

For a 75 you should be looking at 6-7 moderately sized fish. Take into account certain fish will effect bio-load more or less, some can be very messy eaters. In 6-7 months from now, if your levels are still perfect, you can consider adding one or two more.

They might look like they are doing great but I have seen it over and over again where people put fish in a too small of a tank and they say their fish are happy and doing good and the next thing you know they have a thread titled "Why are my fish dying". You have to realize that it wont happen overnite. The bioload will overwhelm your tank and the fish over a period of time and then "CRASH". I`m just saying it because I`ve seen it many times.

Well, thats a step in the right direction. Make sure you are testing often, preferably every couple days to make sure you don't get any sort of level spike.

If I'm not mistaken, that bass is gonna eat anything it can fit in his mouth when he gets bigger. Will likely eat the firefish first. I know you've heard enuf already, but you really need to do better with fish choices - on the compatability and amount in the smaller tank areas. I know I got real excitd when I first started keeping SW fish too, so I can "kinda" understand what you're going thru. I just hope it's not too painful a lesson for you.

Good luck!
