Well the pacific blue tang was introduced into the tank after being in quarantine yesterday, it is slightly bigger than the yellow tang which was deliberate, the blue tang went into hiding for a short period and when I turned the lights back on he came out, the yellow (YT) checked him out and tried to lance him with her spur in her tail, this went on for best part of the afternoon, today they are both swimming about as if they have been together for months no animosity at all, I was worried because of all the write up's saying they will not get on.

Do you add kalk to your tank, if so what is the advantage, it apparently keeps aiptasia at bay but an overdose seems easy to happen?
