I've had my 75 Gallon up and going for right at 12 months now. It is plumbed to a 40 gallon sump. The tank is doing great other than a bubble algae outbreak I'm dealing with.

The current stock list is:
Pair of Black Ice Clowns
1 Royal Grama
1 Yellow Corris Wrasse
1 Diamond Goby
1 Bangai Cardinal
1 Pajama Cardinal
1 Coral Beauty
1 Bristletooth Tang

1 Fire Shrimp
1 Cleaner Shrimp

My question is, am i fully stocked? Or is there 1 more fish that will do well in this system? Everyone seems to be getting along great. The tang was the most recent fish added to the system (3 months ago).

On paper you appear to be fully stocked but other variables come into play such as how much hard scape and swimming area for the fish? Do you have an oversized skimmer and weekly water change? Things like this can probably help determine if you have the capacity for one more fish and of course the size of the additional fish comes into play also.

The fish are staring at me with hungry eyes.

a few off the top of my head

But what do I know. I have a 75 with 3 dwarf lions, 2 snowflake eels, a copper banded butterfly and a tang.

I guess I should also add that i have a 50 gallon frag tank plumbed into the system. Right now there are no fish in the frag tank, but i will be adding a six line for pest.

I have a pair of Springer's in my tank... honestly, pictures don't do them justice. It's no accident that another name for the is Blue Sapphire Damsel. They're like little swimming jewels, very brilliant blue.

But the Starcki is no slouch either. Almost looks like a flameback angel, except that you won't have to worry about it eating corals. I think a little smaller too. Anyhow, you can't go wrong with either.

I just bought a Springeri Damsel. The LFS had some in stock this week. It is in QT right now. It's a beautiful fish for sure. I'm excited to get it in the tank.

Thought I would share a photo of the tank.

Do you think there are benefits to turning your skimmer off for periods of time?
