    So I have a question on stocking rates.... I have a Sergent Major damsel in the tank for the weekend, and he has been mowing the GHA lawn very nicely. I have a Fox face and dragon wrasse that I would like to add as sson as possible. They are in a Boyu as a holding tank and I think they would benefit greatly from the extra space in the new DT. Is it possible, or should I say responsible to add these 2 fish in the next week, say about 3 days apart each? Is this too fast for the system?

    By the way the system is about 1,5 months old now, nearing the end of the cycle. You can see the tank thread in my signature.

    Thanks for the advice...

    Nico

    Depends on the size of the fish. But being in a nano, I believe the foxface is small.

    If all are small, then yes, 3 days apart would be ok.

    Cool thanks, yes they are small. I had a nice big fox face, but swapped him out for a smaller one before I knew i was getting the bigger tank. DOPE!! Anyhow, thanks for the advice as always :)
