Angeltown - Phoenix from Ashes

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

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.

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
