Tangs are very sensitive animals. Please get more experience before even thinking about a Tang. I think that 70 gallons is too small. Period. I don't think it will survive in a small tank in the hands of a novice.

Get your feet wet with fish first. Don't start with corals until you can keep the fish alive for a while. Especially a Brain Coral. That is not a beginner coral.

Zai, right now you should be testing your water and letting the Ich run its life course in your tank. Stop asking if you can add livestock. Why do you think that we will all of the sudden change the 90 day suggestion?

i would get the LR off the glass especially the side walls, the rock will eventually scratch the glass if you don't

That or it's really hard to get algae off the glass if you can't get to it. I remember having a huge build up because i couldn't touch a lot of the glass, that's why all my rock is not touching any off my walls... (But if you look at my tank i have coraline on them now).

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

Yesterday night some (3 to 4) 1/2 inch long white thread like worms were moving on the rocks and glass. what are those Copepods OR Amphipods. i enjoyed watching them. ha ha.

Moreover, 15% Water will be replaced alongwith all the test this sunday. Should i do the test before water replacement or after.

Protein Skimmer Cup is filling up 3 to 4 times within 24 hrs. with white foam. I am trying to get Coarline Super Skimmer 65 gallon but not available here.
