I have been looking for a saltwater aquarium for some time... (previously only freshwater)
I am looking for: mixed fish and corals (soft and stony)
I'm in doubt between a nano (to learn, cheaper - -though harder to maintain) and a mid-sized one (circa 50g)
-- I guess for me now a...
I am new to TRT, but have been reading lots of threads over the past few weeks and have just set up my first SW tank last Saturday. I am beyond excited, but know that patience is key. This is my set up: 75g w/30g sump, approx. 115 pounds of LR in the DT and another 10-15 in the sump. I have ASM...

So i just started a 75g fowlr. i have a skimmer rated up to 150 and a sump. My question is what fish can i put in here. I like tangs even though i know they need a lot of room. Can i put any tangs in here? What about eels? i have cave like rock work and a perfect seal screen top. Basically to...
I got a 55 gallon tank a week ago and starting to get corals to add on to my live rock to start the reef. I am starting to look at fish to buy. So far the fish I am interested in are:
A pair of clownfish
Yellow clown goby
Royal Gramma Baslet
Tasha white ray shrimp goby +...
Well three weeks in and seen my ammonia spike and now all levels are 0
So I'm ready for fish
So I was thinking
Pale Blue surgeon
Gold rim tang
Wreck fish 2
Start with clowns the weekend what do you think
I am trying to filter through the mass ammounts of information that comes with learning this hobby, i already have a very well developed 55g freshwater tank (2years) and am finally comfortable enough to branch out into Marine. I have read several different books, articles and forums and...
I want to get these fish for my 40g Breeder, I currently have a neon goby in the tank
This is what I want to get later down the road in this order:
*Yellow candy hogfish(two spot hogfish)
*Orangethroat Pikeblenny OR Horned Blenny or both if possible
This will be the Final Stock List for my tank 55g, anything not on the list WILL NOT be put into the tank until there is an upgrade. some inverts may be added later on, but NO FISH after this list is finalized. this list if fully debatable, and all input good or bad is welcomed.
so to start...
I need help with finding out if all my fish, inverts, and CUC are all compatible. Also if my bioload with more fish would be too much for my skimmer, thanks.
75g display ( Going to be a mixed reef with mostly SPS )
Octopus extreme 200 skimmer
I feed 3x a week and dont...
Well, my poor sailfin has been offically declared dead :-( I'm so sad, he was very cool. So now I am putting together my fish list. I have my bully sixline who will, unfortually, be the first to go back in. I want to also add the royal gramma, a black and white oscellaris, and a normal...
i'm still trying to get my fish list together (so i know what order to purchase them in, so that i'm from least to most aggressive as suggested), and am not sure what is a good amount of fish for my tank.... would the following be too much for my 90?
1 ocellaris clown
1 tang (not sure of spp...
is there a "rule of thumb" for how many fish one can keep in a reef system (like the " 1" of fish/gallon of water" for fresh)? i know there are always exceptions (fish that need less room, fish that need extra room etc), but is there any sort of guideline to know what is a good amount of fish...
90 gal tank (+30-ish sump) is just over a month old. i've had snails (2 nassarius, 3 turban, 3 mexican), dwarf hermits (about a doz), some mushrooms and some zoas in there for about 2+ weeks now, and last weekend added a peppermint shrimp and some macroalgae. (and some tube worms, pods...
ok so im on my way to fish/coral and wanted to hear everyones opinion on what i want in my tank. (hence the new thread) But first i have a few questions...
1)if i want both fish and corals do i need to factor both in as a bioload?
2)how many is two many?
3)what are some good "housekeeper"...
I'm still working on figuring out my fish list, though I still have a few months before I'm going to add them. 55 gallon tank with potential to add some corals. What's the best order for adding? What are some good starter corals and when should I even think about adding them? I started the tank...
