I recently finished cycling my 90 reef tank, I moved over a pair of clowns, a gramma and a watchman goby, a few days later I added a Sixline wrasse, tail spot and Midas blenny along with 3 pj cardinal fish
When is it ok to add another round of fish ?
  • Tailspot / Midas
  • PJ Cardinal

It's important to note that overloading the aquarium with too many fish initially can exceed what the bacteria can handle. This is why it is best to add new fish slowly over the next few months. The bacterial levels will adapt if you don't overload the system with too many mouths to feed.

So should I wait several weeks before adding more ? My next addition is a foxface coral beauty and a yellow coris wrasse

I would monitor at the end of a one week period and if everything tests fine then add the next round. I don't think it's the fish your adding so much as the increasing amount of food that is what we want to keep an eye on.

I was planning on using divers den which would enable me to add them without quarantine from what I’ve been told
Many people have received sick fish from DD. There is still some risk there, as they do more conditioning than quarantining.

The list cut off the first set starting with the Royal gramma ending with the pj cardinals I already have except I only have 2 pj cardinalfish and plan to add 2-3 more or 1 so they’re more of a school

  • Royal gramma
  • Pair of designer clowns
  • Sixline wrasse
  • Watchman goby/pistol shrimp
  • Tailspot / Midas /lawnmower
  • PJ Cardinal (4-5)
