Both my DT's are upstairs, but the sump and all water is downstairs. It is getting organized little by little.

I'm torn between that and an RKE. Apex seems more workable for pumps and things. Not sure.

Ahh that makes sense. Last thing you want to do is be denied help. Are you getting the lite or the .net version?

If you can, I'd wait until after the lights go off for the day and feed the main tank well before too. Mccoskers are very timid IME, and if I remember correctly you already have a couple more aggressive fish.

I will be waiting till the lights go out before adding them. My only concern is the foxface. He has not shown any aggression torward the clowns but fish don't like some gish so we will see.

I'd be worried about the clowns too honestly. Good luck though

You have an 8ft 75 gal tank? I'm pretty sure they cover 24"x24" each

Even If you need 4, that's still practically the same price as 2 radions.

A little update on the tank the McCoskers are doing great. I picked up a Duncan that is doing good, but my two toadstools are not doing good. Ive had them for about two weeks or so and at first they where doing great but now they only extend there tentacles about 1/4 of the way out. I moved them to a spot with lower flow and a little less light about 4 days ago with no change. Nitrates 5.0 ammonia 0 phosphates 0 nitrite 0 ph 7.8. Any help would be great.

the more you move leathers the longer it will take to get them to open
I had one that didn't open over 6 months
