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.Stock the tank you have, not the tank you plan to have. Always have and use patience.
- 29g FW - Community
- 55g SW - Blue Watchman Goby, Royal Gramma, 6-Line Wrasse, 2 Ocellaris Clownfish, and various corals and inverts
For those of you who want a SW tank and never have had one before or just starting out, read this blog entry from my blog on AC, it will give you a place to start.

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.
