125G tank help
im new on here and while reading alot of the threads im a little worried im over stocked ?
i have 125 g tank inc. sump live rock and refugium fish are
midnight dwarf angel
all have been together for 4 months now with no problems, will i be ok if i keep it at that?
Clown Tang- Grown- 1' 3" Tank requirements 250g
Regal Tang- Grown- 1' Tank Requirements- 180g
Queen Angel- Grown- 1' 6"- Tank Requirements- 250g
so you dont think its a good idea to add 2 more centropyge angels ?
i believe the cleaner wrasse feeds off a fishs slime coat mucus if memory serves me right. you may want to research that alittle more as well.
why do i need to research , there a cleaner wrasse they eat parasites and dead tissue off larger fishes' skin . mine also goes mad for brine and mysis and hes been in the tank 6 months now cleaning all the fish , they all take there turn coming and letting him do his job. these fish should be ok for a few years and by then i upgrade or sell on and buy small again , simple
these fish seem to need the slime coats of other fish in their diets for long term survival. in a closed system i dont see their being enough of this "food" present.
and you posted the wikipedia definition, your welcome. :-D
lol reefing i tried not to be so blunt.
ofcourse if willing, we can help though, and if you want to talk biology cleaner wrasses are facultative cleaners which mean the parasites, slime coats are its primary food source compared to obligate cleaners like cleaner gobies. ( i believe cleaner shrimp fit this catagory as well )
i can also imagine it being pestering when the cleaner wrasse is jumping only between the 3 or 4 fish in your tank all the time ( which again this food source will soon extinguish )
