Cleaner Wrasse Update!!!!
I just wanted to give everyone an update on my cleaner wrasse, I have had this fish for about 6 months or so now and it is doing extremely well, it has actually started eating flake food in the last month or so on a daily basis along with the cyclopeeze and mysis shrimp and the occasional black worm here and there. I am getting ready to do a 180 gallon build and will try to do a build page on it as I go. I also will be taking my 75 gallon down since I have aquired a few more fish and the 75 gallon is starting to get a little overcrowded, I will be using the 75 gallon as a sump/refugium under the 180.

I will try to get a few pics of it and my other tank inhabitants, I have a huge buying problem when it comes to fish, I have a wholesale fish account now and can get fish at a great price, about a month ago I bought a purple tang for $50 and last week I got an achiles for $60 both shipped to my door for that price. I will list my current tank inhabitants so you can see why I need to upgrade my tank. I have about 125 lbs of live rock in my 75 and a 40 gallon refugium with a seperate wet/dry with my skimmer skimming very wet do to the bioload I have put on, I get no ammonia, nitrites, nitrates are always undetectable and phosphates are always under .003 with a hanna phos meter. I have about 20 or so corals in the tank and just went from t5 and pc lights to a 2x250 watt sunpod fixture last week. I picked up the sunpod fixture deliverd to my door for $380 brand new which I thought was a very decent price.

You are definitely overstocked for the 75g. How big of a tank are you planning to upgrade to? I suggest you read several reliable articles on fish stocking for a SW tanks. I won't go into detail on what should be altered with your current stocking unless you want the details.
- 29g FW - Community - Congo Tetras and a mated pair Kribensis
- 55g SW - Royal Gramma, 6-Line Wrasse, 2 Ocellaris Clownfish, and various corals and inverts

Most of these fish are small and I knew I was going to be putting up a 180 in the next few weeks so I got the fish cheap while I could, I am building a 180 with a 75 gallon sump and probably another tank underneath depending on how much space I will have left.
