Any updates? Love these large tanks and after seeing the freedom the fish have it pains me to know people put tangs in 75-90g tanks and think it’s ok.

Yes here is a little update.

2 Achilles introduced a few days ago 5 minutes before lights turn off. Sohal and 2 leucosternum were not amused and directly fight against Achilles. Darkness stopped aggressions. I was afraid for next morning. Sunrise is nearly 4 o clock and go through the window to tank. I stand up at 6.30am and went directly to tank. No aggressions anymore. Leucosternum, Achilles and Sohal next to each other. Of course sohal shows a few times that he is the boss but nothing I have to be afraid of in this moment. Achilles, tiny and large, eat frozen food and pellets a few hours later. That's a good sign.
Here my stocklist :

Acanthurus sohal adult
Acanthurus lineatus tiny
2 Acanthurus leucosternum
2 Acanthurus achilles
1 Acanthurus polyzona
1 Ctenochaetus flavicauda
15 Zebrasoma flavissima
2 Zebrasoma rostratum
2 Zebrasoma gemmatum
1 Zebrasoma desjardinii
1 Naso vlamengii
1 Naso elegans

2 Zanclus cornutus
1 Forcipiger longirostris
3 Hemitaurichthys polylepis

1 Pomacanthus annularis semi adult
2 Pomacanthus imperator semi adult
1 Holacanthus clarionensis
1 Apolemichthys arcuatus
1 Apolemichthys griffisi
2 Chaetodontoplus personifer
2 Centropyge multicolor
1 Centropyge interrupta
1 Paracentropyge multifaciata tb

1 Anampses lennardi
2 Labroides dimidiatus
1 Labroides bicolor

2 Liopropoma carmabi
2 Oxycirrhites typus
1 Neocirrhites armatus
2 Meiacanthus kamoharai
2 Oxymonacanthus halli

2 Pseudanthias pascalus
4 Pseudanthias pleurotaenia
2 Pseudanthias ventralis
7 Pseudanthias evansi
7 Pseudanthias parvirostris
4 Serranocirrhitus latus


Greetings Torben

Awesome, love all the fish. The size definitely helps with the aggression.

Yes I think so but there are to many tangs if all fully grown. I think I have to sell a few then.
May be I change the yellow tangs if they are adult against tiny ones again...

Hey guys
Here are a few new fish.

2 Chaetodontoplus conspicillatus tank breed from Poma Labs. I think about the size they are from the first batch. Is there are a second batch already?
1x Holacanthus clarionensis tank breed from Bali aquarich
1 x Chaetodon mitratus tiny
2 x Gymnothorax melatremus
2 x Odontanthias borbonius

Tank transfer has done and fish went to tank last night.


https://youtu.be/h-2UxeVexOI


Somebody know something about Ted Krupman? He updated since years regularly his fantastic treat and now he does not since long time

Also have a bad lost. Catch my bandit to pair up with a second bigger one in my coral nursery. Had a power failure for nine hours in the night. Coral nursery is the same water system like the display tank in our living room. But more half of my fish died in there. Display noting happens. I thing because small water and much corals that produced Co2 at night. Also a few SSC and other corals died.

Fish lost
2 Apolemichthys arcuatus
1 Chaetodon personifer tb bigger one
1 Naso elegans
1 Chaetodon auriga

Fish survived
1 Holacanthus clarionensis Medium
1 Chaetodontoplus personifer smaller one
1 Siganus medium size


Gruß Torben

Ted isn't on here much anymore due to the site in general not being very busy. I don't have contact info for him outside of RC so I have no update to provide. In other news, Hedgedrew (Andrew) purchased the Peppermint that Divers Den a few months back

Not in this moment. But this would not helpful in this situation because the electrical fuse jumps out. It was my mistake because I recognized a message from Apex but I confound the orange sign up in handy the the orange singn of my Alkatronic. So I didn't recognize.

Ted sold his fish to Andrew, so they are in good hands. He’s remolding his house and the tank had to go. He will come back he said, hopefully in the 3-4000g range I think he said

Yes, he’s actually done with the build. Many fish are In Currently. He posts quite a bit now on Facebook. Also has a YouTube channel I believe. There’s probably 100 fish in the tank currently
Bandits, conspics, Achilles, and tons of others

His peppermint and narcosis tank sprung a leak, so they are in a sump until new tank gets put in its place.

$30,000 from DD and yes shortly after he purchased the second one, the original one died after 7 years. He said 7-12 years is the lifespan or at least from what has been gathered from those who have kept them.

Not sure on the narcosis pair cost but the pepp was $25k on DD.
He paired them up as he still had one, but as Derek stated the other had passed. That is why he bought this other one.
In the tank is the narcosis pair, peppermint pair, and a bunch of ventralis anthias.
�� they all survive the change over. It’s still in same water just in sump waiting on new tank
