More fish going in the system. This is my last batch of fish with some aggressive ones so they are all going in at the same time. Bio load will increase pretty significantly but the system should be able to handle it! Really excited to get some serious movement in the tank!

Things being added: pintail wrasse, green wrasse, Flame angel, Japanese Yellow swallowtail, royal gramma. Maybe a blue/yellow damsel and a Pink damsel. Yes, some of these will outgrown the tank over time, but that’s ok because I will graduate them to my dads 180 :)674170a5a834b194a8e318f209e9f231.jpg

That is quite the fish collection in there!  Love those pintail wrasses...  Looking forward to seeing some pics of them out of the bags 😃

Definitely pushing the stock limit in this tank. Fish count is at 12 I think Super excited though! The pintail is AMAZING! Once they settle in, I’ll break out the DSLR default_smile.png

Nice additions, really like the Swallowtail.  Always funny to see the names that get assigned to fish.

The swallow tail is awesome! Right now she is about a half dollar size, still needs to grow into her coloring a little :)

Love the Flame angel, i miss mine for sure, not sure i would have named mine Grace though :tongue:

She could be very much a butt head at times but never ate coral thankfully.

 

Nice additions!!

Like the look of that swallow tail (along with the pintail wrasse of course).  Will be interested to see how it matures.  Nice choices Cody!

Looks good and glad to see someone else with a Marineland 75 gallon tank!  How is your blue tang doing?  I want to get one but I am afraid of it getting too big for the tank too quickly.

Blue tang is great! Hasn’t really grown but eats good! Gonna take a while before he is too big :)

Funny how some people mistakenly think they have a rose but in fact, they have a BW. I was one of them, until a friend said, "you do know that you have Black Widows, right?" LOL... All 10 were BWs, still have them, too.

Little update for the Nem population. All three are getting along great and I’m in love

Now I just need to find a sweet Ritteri and a blue carpet. 12941744943f6bc15e40df1583795986.jpg

Small update. Tank is doing great! But my big momma BW split :/ so now I have two. And I also just finished QTing this huge Ritteri Anemone. It’s roughly 12” wide!! I built it an island rock to sit on so that it is my new “show piece” for now. I also just made connections to pick up a yellow tip Ritteri in a few weeks. This tank is definitely headed in a Ritteri dominated direction
