    Yes you sure can but add them slowly like a few at a time for the bigger ones. The smaller groups go ahead and add them all at once. Unless your adding a ton of them then no.. lol

    Probably, I had similar biology in my 90 with no issues.

    FYI, the blue throats are typically skittish in the beginning. So, hiding is normal for them. My female will dart into the rocks when my hand goes in. But is out swimming otherwise. Great peaceful fish.

    My yellow tang before would bug the new comers first few days then lose interest. But that's gonna depend on your yellow tang on what to do....you may have to dip it out and put it back in after a bit.

    I want a female the most actually! My foxface even after like 9 months still does that. I was considering doing the release at night. Pick it up t lfs closing g time and release at night so it's there In the morning.

    There's still no guarantee that they will behave even with lights out.

    That's why it's nice to have a backup tank to use. That's why we're thinking about setting up another tank for that purpose. We used to have multiple tanks so if it doesn't work out I just dip them out and put them into another.

    The 90 is the main reef, my wife's 32 cube just finished cycling, and I'm still aquiring everything for the 125 aggressive. Once that's up. I'd have a place to put them if things got crazy. I always have a 55 qt tank on hand too that I can mix up some water and get startef. I keep some sponge in my sump for good bio media to get that going if need be.

    I'm gun a think about it. We definitely need more fish in the 90 as well as coral.
