CUC
2 Turbos
10 Nas snails

Thats it for now as im ordering from reefcleaners

Corals

Green Candy cane
Pink Leather
GSP
Two chalice
Frogspawn
6 Zoa frags


Future stocking for fish is

1 Yellow tang ( waiting a Month to add)
1 Scopas tang (Waiting two months)
1 Purple tang ( Waiting 3 Months )

Personally from experience bud, you might have some aggression/territory issues with those type of tangs in that small of a tank. Typically from the purple,yellow,achilles combo....if it was me, i would have added all the passive tangs first then added the smallest purple, yellow, followed by the achilles i could find. But if you got the achilles in qt, let me know how it goes...

Thank you Geoff!

Im pretty new to big tangs

Ive read about the aggression and was told to put a mirror up or photos of the fish to help draw the Anger.

The blue and Ach live with a Purple,yellow and foxface now.

If i do have Aggression problems i will just stay with what current fish i have.



ALso any advice from anyone is welcome! Please i can use the knowledge

+1 you will definitely have issues with the tangs (especially the yellow and purple...I'm not sure about the Achilles) but when they get use to each other they will be best of friends. Good luck!

Waaaay too many tangs in that small of a tank (funny how a 120 is small right). I'd cut your list down to two or three. The Achilles and Hippo get big. You already have a Idol in there that gets big as well. As for the Yellow and Purple, def follow Geoff's advice as he has both, but add them at the same time. There aren't any passive tangs in the group you're suggesting... at least in my experience. They will all want to own the place and my money is on the yellow and the idol for ownership rights.

I'd also look into if you should be putting an Achilles in a 120. I think I've read that you typically want a minimum of a 6 foot tank to keep an already fragile (and expensive) fish happy.

EDIT:

Check that... didnt read the whole update about the Idol... that sux. Man, that is one fish you need to make sure is absolutely eating anything when you buy it. If not... leave it. Not to mention, they are very susceptible to parasites/pathogens. With all the tangs you want to put in your 120, man that'd be a recipe for disaster. Still think you should trim it down.

Final thought... unless you want to rid yourself of it, just leave the flame in there.

Ok question time



My two tangs are in a BC 29 for QT.

I know its small but its just a QT.

They both have Ich right now. Still eating and swimming fine.

Im going to start Copper tonight.


My questions is this.

My DT had Ich also. The Flame angel still shows a few specs here and there.

If my two tangs are in qt for a month and have no signs of ich and i place them in my DT what is the chances they just get ich again and I cant get em?

You could try soaking your foods for the DT in metronidazole and maybe throw in some cleaner shrimp, wrasse and/or goby to try and control the ich in the DT while your tangs are in QT.

Also, while your tangs are in QT make sure they are eating a lot of veggies

Good luck!

I cant tell you honestly lol.

I have never had to deal with that but everything I have read says if you don't leave your tank fishless for at least 6 weeks you are setting yourself up for failure. I know a lot of people know more about this than I do but that seems to be the consensus of the people I have come to trust.
