Trying to do things flawlessly....

in my efforts to do things correctly, doing my best to stay within the confines of the following:

the tang police
the your tank is too small police
the quarantine police
the ich police

Hey Charley. How about a pic of the tank? Would live to see what you have going on.

So where you want to go? More coral and reef safe fish? Rockwork and growth on coral looks great. I personally am working toward mixed reef with both softie and LPS and have 16 fish in my 120. Some may say too many fish but most are small/medium size and weekly water change with heavy skimming has worked fine.

Pretty similar goals. Going very slowly. In no rush. Just trying to add something blue...thinking a blue throat trigger....perhaps a niger. Small to begin. No water changes. every time I water change things get worse. For whatever reason, my tank does better dosing.....

Slow is always good in this hobby and much kinder on your bank account. Love trigger fish and will likely have a few one day. For me, I like the personality of both blenny and gobby. With all that rockwork both would love your tank!

Do happen to have a watchman and shrimp pair...so cool. Just pick up a striped blenny. I have to find a small trigger.

Good luck with the search. You may want to reach out to Salgado Aquatics. They are great on price and can look for you. Nice people to deal with.

It’s your tank, do what you want with it...

My 2 cents...
