I am hoping to get a Auriga/Threadfin butterflyfish to add to my aquarium. I would like some advice from you guys if you think my tank could handle the bio load. I have a 75-gallon tank, 40lbs live rock and 30lbs live sand. My LFS
sold me one of those expenensive complete water management systems which includes all of this stuff in two pieces: Protein skimmer, surface skimmer, 1000 GPH
pump. As far as the filter media the layers go as follows from top to bottom PolyFiber mechanical media, carbon pad, bio balls, activated carbon pillow, sintered glass cylinders.
My current bio load includes:
1-Blue Hippo Tang about 4"
2-Ocellaris Clowns about 1.5"
1-Sgt. Major Damsel about 2:
2-scarlet hermet crabs
I have had my aquarium up and running for a little over 2-monts and everything has been great. I have a couple of those amphipods running around at night sometimes. My current readings are 0-ammonia, 0-nitrite, 20-nitrate, 8.3-PH
This new hobby has been a ton of fun for me and I know for sure that I will end up upgrading to a bigger tank at least 150gallons probably in 2-yeras.
So back to the original question. Do you think I can add a Auriga/Threadfin Butterfly fish? Thanks.
