there won't be salt creep on the inside of the tube. it's probably algae if the tube is clear.

lol, whoa I misread that one. I thought he was saying there was something ON the return tubing. Yeah it would be kind of hard to have salt creep inside the return tube. haha

So what are you thinking of stocking the tank with once your water is stable?

Its kind of a tan color on the tube- looks more like waste than anything else. Maybe Algae as you say.

Thanks.

It's pretty normal, you should post some pics of your setup. Is your tank drilled with an overflow, or do you have a HOB system for your wet dry filter?

Want to add a black banded Goby ( had 3 before- all died - not sure what they are called- but they have several black/white thick vertical line, with a little yellow, Long Dorsal fin) to pair-up with the pistol Shrimp. Was told the atlantic pistol shrimp will not pair-up with any pacific gobies.

We had a couple of small tanks a few years ago- started with passive fish, and then moved into small grouper/basses, eels, Frog.

Much prefer the passive ones.

If we are able to get the symbiotic relationship going with the goby/pistol, what else do you recommend?

Thanks,

I have had issues with pistol shrimp, they destroyed my sand bed. Others have had no issues with them, it all depends on what you like. In your tank you have some options, clowns, blenny, hawkfish, some wrasse are ok in a 65 (Some will jump), goby, dwarf angels. You should really not keep more than one goby, many of them can be aggressive to similar fish. That rule works out for a lot of fish though...lol

How much live rock do you have? That is going to decide a lot too, live rock is basically a natural filter for your tank, more is always good. Plus many fish need it to hide or they will stress. Hawkfish for example like to have a lot of hiding places i.e. a lot of rock.
