Hi guys! So I have given A LOT of thought to stocking since I bought my tank on a whim,
back in January or February.
ROUGHLY 70 pounds of rock so far.. plan on adding at least 40# more
~as far as stock SO FAR,
-2 ocellaris clowns
-a couple VERY generous handfuls of snails, (mini ceriths, nassarius, FL cerith)
-one blue legged hermit.
Reef Octopus 4 Skimmer
chaeto in refugium
maybe 5 pounds of rubble
Water parameters as of now are:
Nitrate: 10 (I have been doing water changes to bring this down, ordering a RO
unit next week because buying it at the store is too much work & money lol)
SO... to the point.
There are just 3 more fish I want to add to my tank, but I fear because 2 can reach 7" I will be overstocking, really quickly.
-Kole Yellow Eye Tang (Ctenochaetus strigosus)
-One Spot Foxface (Siganus unimaculatus)
-Coral Beauty (Centropyge bispinosa)
I do not plan on keeping any corals, just FOWLR
. Also, plan on seeing if I can find someone to take some of these snails because they are such an eyesore
... I ordered a CUC from reefcleaners.org for a 40 gal
tank and man they are EVERYWHERE!!!! Way too many snails for me.
Any advice on this/alternative stock ideas/order of stock? Sorry for the speel guys, I figure I'd try to answer as many questions as I can as I'm going to bed and will be working all day tomorrow.
Thanks in advance!!!! Not many salty fans where I live, so you guys are a lifesaver!!
