That would be the best way I think. See how well they thrive, and if they dont behave as well as you think they should add salt.

Any chance you could find out what it is, I am curious.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Hey does anyone know whether fish grow their fins back, I am pretty sure that they can but it takes a lot of time

do you have any other type of fish in there with them? and if so do you see any negative effects?

I have gouramis and no there is no negative effects, they just go after each other a lot in breeding

one last question for everyone. I have been looking at how big mollies get and it says the regular kind get up to about 4" which i can believe but is still what i think of as a BIG molly. and i also saw that sailfins can get up to 6"?! has anyone seen a sailfin that big? or even close? i mean thats half a foot! i looked at some sailfins at the pet shop here in town and they were 3" and looked pretty big to me i couldn't image one twice as big

sailfin I would look more at 4-5" than nearer 6.
