This week’s Q&A was all about schooling fish for saltwater aquariums
Tony is definitely a wrasse man!
Another great show.
It would really be helpful if you could post the names and sample pictures of the different fish (or corals) your refer to in your talk. As a newcomer I don’t always catch the name or know the spelling to look it up.
Thanks for now.
Yes, I agree with Rod karr
Mark- when I was snorkeling in Hawaii there were large schools of small slender reflective fish everywhere that appeared to have been the perfect size for even a smaller tank. Why aren’t these available in the hobby?
I have had 4 green chromis that have lived together for 8 months in my 100 gallon. They have lived happily ever after!
Hey mark, can we get to see ur current quarantine tank setup and ur main tank sump setup….?
Ed…could be lots of reasons why those fish aren’t available. They could not survive well in captivity, be hard to catch, etc, etc
Hi Mark Great Qanda show again, I have two species of schooling fish in my 200 gal set-up 4 larger green chromis viridis & 6 younger Anthias dispar , I have lost only one of each species bringing the numbers down to the amount quoted, however the loses were from a pistol shrimp and not from infighting for dominance, both species were purchased about 18 months ago after removing a larger blue speckled fox faced rabbit that died of an unknown reason at full size. I hope things continue as they are without any fighting to my knowledge. The dispar have become a harem in a cave & I suspect are spawning. I would like to have more of each species but done know if I should push my luck.
I have one problem with the idea of using a RAZOR BLADE on GLASS, in my experience steel blades will scratch glass, but I would like to share my finding of Perspex or Lexan cut into a strip that suits the purpose. I’ve been using this method since discovering it when I had a small maintenance & installation business, not only does it not scratch but it will shift the most stubborn varieties of algal deposits and if the edges get dull then sand a new one (not by hand).
Hope your next home has a Tank room as I have one now I wish it had a hole cut in the wall to display my tank. Oh well can’t have it all at once.
I just want to convey my sheer thanks for your show as I’m somewhat disabled your segments & advise what I look forward to each week. I’ve been at this a while but everything new tip helps, sometimes just getting me back on track & motivated. cheers to ya mate (OZ talk).
Hi Mark, I recently bought a trio of Anthias (2 female and one male) for my 80g tank. The male was in a separate tank at the LFS while there were 3 females in a sepRate tank. I took the male and two of the three females home. Last week I went back to the store and kind of felt sorry for the third female that is now all alone in her tank… 🙂
Do you think I can add it to my tank now (it has been two weeks) or the others will chase her off?
hello mark I was wondering what type of Anthias would be good for a 55 gallon tank?
