    Um...you need help ????? I don't think so, your tank is looking great :D

    Is that an alveopora or a goniopora?

    Thanks Scubaninja. I am still deciding whether i should add a yellow, purple or blue tang or maybe the three. but the problem is to find the three on the same day as i would like to intreduce them at the same time.

    do you have a sump? you could house them there temporarily? or ask the LFS to hold them for you until your ready?

    tank is looking damn nice for 2 months man:thumbup:.....but you need to increase light asap if you want your goniapora to survive, you will need 4 to 6 t5's

    I do have a sump but would not like to keep the tang/s for to long in the sump.
    Leaving them at the lfs sounds like a good idea. thanks ninja.

    pot a nroblem. if you can, i dont think you should pay for the fish before you collect them, sometimes things happen in the shop, rather ask them to hold them for you and you will pay for them when you collect

    good plan, powder blue and brown are usually trouble, but there are some good ones, was he much of a pain in the ... but if you havent got any other tangs it is usually ok right?
