180 tank stocking
 
i am looking for live stock options for my tank right now i want
6-ocelaris clowns 3 regular and 3 black and white
4-banggai cardinals
4-firefish
1-yellow tang
1-powder blue tang
1-flame angel
1-coral banded shrimp
2-skunk cleaner shrimp
2- bubble tip anemones (when the tank is old enough probly after 8 months)
is this too much? any considerations for me?
is it possible to add pyjama cardinals or a butterfly fish

Yellow+Blue Tang= 1 dead Tang

One of the few things about salt water fish I know is you cant mix blue and yellow tangs

jesus52 06-24-2012 10:19 PM

but its a powder blue tang. i though that since they have different body shapes and color they would be fine

This is an incorrect theory. He can in fact keep a Yellow and a Blue in the same tank together. It would be better if it was an 8' long tank, but he can get by with the 180.

You may have issues with the Coral Band Shrimp eating the Cleaner Shrimp. Stocking list looks sound to me. Your going to have problems keeping the Nitrates at 0 for the Anemones though, thats a big load you have picked.

what if there is only 4 clowns. an is there any invert that you suggest like mayb the yellow coral banded i read that they are less agressive.

Cleaner Shrimp and Peppermints, but a Coral Band will get ahold of them sooner or later, imo.

jesus52 06-29-2012 07:09 PM

so ill leave out the banded nd get peppermints instead. Any other tips. I will make sure i dont overfeed even if i do im going to make sure i clean the left overs nd do my water changes right
