    Hi all,

    Okay so i am in the process of upgrading. My new tank is 2400 x 800 x 800. Now the questions i have is as follows:

    1. I am looking at Hawaiin Black Arag-Alive. Where is best place to purchase? Am looking at 8x 9Kg. (Sponsors hit me up with best prices hehe)

    2. Are there any places one can "finance" with? Just curious?

    3. I am in the process of creating a list of fish i am wanting to add in the tank once cycling is completed eventually. I want a Reef tank with some coral and fish that are compatible. What are your suggestions that i can check out? I already have a Maroon Clown and Damsel in my current tank.

    Thank you :)

    you are starting with some aggro fish... Of the clowns, the Maroon is most likely the most aggressive, due to its size. And which damsel is that?

    The Blue Yellow tail BYT in that size tank will not be an issue. I got 4 in my 3.2m tank and they leave each other alone. Mine are the smallest fish in my tank and the others just do not bother about them at all.

    Just checking that you do not have one of the bigger sergeant major damsels They can bother bigger fish that a BYT can.

    So an update, finally got my substrate and going to start the cycling process soon. Yay!

    Which chemicals / additives should be on my shopping list? Also recommendations on test kits?

    I don't know if it's been answered, but @Aquaria-SA does finance on reef equipment that they sell. Jebao pumps, lumini lighting, go aquarium products to name a few..
