Thanks for asking. Things are going well. Dino bloom is over. GHA bloom is over. Cyano bloom over - used to just cover sand, but the sandsifting goby has kept the sand stirred up, so it is looking clean. The lawnmower blenny decimated all my GHA. Things are looking good.

I think I am done stocking. Here is what I currently have:

2 Tinkeri butterflyfish
2 Semilarvatus butterflyfish
1 Moorish idol
1 Regal angel
1 Interrupta angel
1 Goldflake angel
3 Bimaculatus anthias
1 Borbonius anthias
1 Fathead sunburst anthias
1 Blue hippo tang
1 Dogface puffer
1 Goldhead sleeper goby
1 Lawnmower blenny
1 Bluestreak cleaner wrasse

How are all the fish getting along now? Moorish Idol still doing well? Interuptus angel still causing havoc?

Things are going well. The Interruptus is a bully and chases mainly the goldflake, but never nips, just chases. Had a few random deaths ( Moorish idol and semilarvatus) at different times. Each happened after owning them for over one year mark. No apparent ailments, all fish were qted, eating great, swimming normally, then suddenly found dead. No other fish had any issues at either of the times.

The replacement Moorish idol is a piggie and eats everything except live blackworms. Go figure.

Sorry for your lost. I’m happy to hear that the new moorish idol is doing well. I always wanted one but keep hearing that they’re hard to keep
I put up a post today on the fish I would like for my 205 gallon tank however no one has responded. Not sure if that’s bad thing or not. I want some really nice , some e pensive however I want them to all get along as much as possible and not be overstocked. I also want to get as many of them on the list as captive bred if possible.

How do you keep nutrients under control with so many large fish? I have a slightly larger tank than you, and something like your stocklist is an eventual goal, but I struggle with algae with only 2 juvenile angels (emperor, regal).

How old is your tank? I started with dry rock and dry sand and went through dinos, cyano, and GHA. It eventually stabilized over time. I have a skimmer and algae scrubber, but don't pull that much skimmate and only clean the scrubber once a month or so and it's not that full. I do a wc once every 2-3 weeks. I honestly do not even know the nutrient levels in the tank since I have no reason to measure them. Turbo snails, a lawnmower blenny, and a sleeper goby seem to keep the algae at bay.
