On the tangs. We are planning our new house build which will be happening next year. Will have a 8-10 foot tank 2 feet deep and 18-24 inches tall. That's why I'm looking at getting them young and then move them into our forever home(fish too). I have gone a little fast on corals but I'm hoping with the extra work checking calcium, alkalinity, and other stuff

to get a clear idea of where things are as far as NO3 make sure you leave your tank with NO water change for a week or so THEN test to see what the levels are.. If you're continually taking out NO2 NO3 you're robbing your tank of the cycle process. Just my opinion

Davis, good progress on the tank. I agree, let the tank stabilize. The levels look ok. I have had times with high nitrates and my softies, LPS were just fine..
probably that anemone will be the most sensitive. As for feeding fish sounds like they are eating just stick with what you have (keep it consistent) . Corals I wouldn't worry about feeding much currently or moving..
any extra feeding could contribute to higher nitrates. Someone once told me our tanks do best when we 'leave our hands out of the tank'...As for ALK, I probably have a test kit you can have. I will look later today.

First Salt water tank

Happy to report all levels are looking good except ph. It's a little low from what I've read it's at 7.8. Added 5 small blue leg hermits 3 snails and a starfish that my wife's said reminds her of an octopus. Everything is doing absolute amazing, still no skimmer and really needing to get my lighting sorted out. Been looking at LED for the programmability and low running cost. Tank is 48" wide and 12-18 deep and 18 tall. It's a bow front shape 72 gallon tank. Also if anyone has a working but old skimmer they don't want or are getting rid of real cheap to hold me over for a few months let me know. Others I'll do water changes to help keep some of the crap out. Here's a few pictures of the tank and coral I've added.
