    er that was a rather quick set-up!

    I hope you know what you doing and you are adding bacteria(seachem stability/microbacter 7/prodibio) or else you going to have an ammonia spike and everything will die.

    If you haven't then I suggest you do a small water change today and add that bacteria ASAP before you start loosing livestock....you had a marine tank before?

    The lighting in that tank should support the magnifica just fine maybe feed him a small piece of hake once a week just to be sure;)) just remember to protect the inlets for the rear chamber as anemones can get sucked in and destroyed there,which could also wipeout your tank!:eek:

    Maybe make a little box out of mesh to fit over there....good luck with the tank,it looks good so far:)

    I agree, that tank is a bit too small for tangs, let alone a powder blue. It will stress, get white spot, infect the reagal tang and both may die.
    Tangs need open space to swim as they sometimes swim fast with a "flick" "flick" motion.

    Well the tank is 180 liters so not a nano but like tobes says they need a bit of a straight line to swim in atleast over 1.2m,i don't think your current scaping is helping either,maybe open it up a bit more.

    I dont mean to sound anal but I was a bit worried about a powder blue in my magnifica cube which has around 400 liters of display,one of the reasons i kept the scaping in my tank minimal so fish have swimming space......just a suggestion.

    I dont foresee major problems right now but the fish will grow and need ALOT more swimming space soon.In the long run I would suggest you find a new home for the powder blue(and even regals as they grow large),your old tank shape was much more suited to tangs since they don't swim vertically but rather horizontally mainly.

    MY main concern and this is why i was concerned is the shape of the tank rather than the literage,same as my cube,less than a meter straight swimming space.
