Re:Stocking 40 Gallon Tank


Thank you for your response. The live rock in my tank came from a very established tank with lots and lots of copepods and others, that is the only reason I decided on the Mandarin. In addition, I do target feed him frozen mysis daily and he takes it.

I should have known better then get the seahorses without any research on that particular breed. I had done lots of research – and decided on a Erectus or Reidi. But then after all that time, my son talked me into the little babies they had gotten in at the LFS. They have mo problem taking them back and giving me a credit. I will definitely do that right away then. I felt bad bringing them back but I guess I’m going to have too. 🙁

As far as my clean up crew goes – I will take your advice there too. I will pass him onto a friend with a much larger tank. Should I add any more clean up crew in place of him?
