The yellow one is the 'Mimic/Chocolate Tang' right......what's the Brownish one in the foreground? Has a different shape to the face?

Yeah it’s alway been that way. I can never have one tank. But I’m going to have to figure out where all the fry are going into. Probably some tubs from tractor supply or some 55 gallon tanks.

They're a good deal.

Looking good Vinnie!! I've never kept a Chocolate Tang, that mature coloration is stunning!

It’s cool looking a the slow changes, he’s also getting that cool tang look. All my fish are nice and fat. I just need to get the UV hooked up. I just don’t want the added heat.

This tank is neglected because of the time I spend on the seahorse fry. I’m going to start paying more attention to it shortly, start keeping up with the big three. I haven’t tested in months.

Hey Vinnie......I'm lazy and FORGETFUL......to what end do you require getting a UV going? I use.....well not with my new set up, but 24/7 with my old one. I have a 9W TurboTwist-3, and can't say I noticed much heat. Then again my old system ALWAYS ran hot during the summer months......80 - 86F at times.
If it's smaller/cooler than yours, and you think it would do the trick for you, you're more than welcome to it.

My up is 40 watt aqua medic, the bulbs put off heat and then if I go with another pump they put off heat.

That's funny! I've been considering adding my UV on the tank partly because I'd rather use it than the heater. Mine is tiny, only 15W or so, but with a really slow flow rate it will probably help clarify the water without having a big impact to the system.

:oops:

Ha! I've gotten into the habit of texting Alk, Phosphate and Nitrate every Saturday morning while I watch TV and have my first cup of coffee. These days I kind of consider those to be the big 3, CA and Mag track well with Alk these days due to products like Triton Core 7 and Tropic Marin All For Reef. I'm always fighting Phosphate down, and always trying to force Nitrate up.

It will depend on how you plumb it. If you add a pump it will generate heat also, that why I like DC pumps less heat. But a standard pump will add heat. I’m amazed at how warm my saltwater mixing tub get with a circulation pump.
