I recently got the opportunity to start up my tank again, this time I’m doing a nem only tank.
Picked up the Acid wash BTA with orange tips.

Just order 2 BTAs, 2 clowns, firefish, and a urchin from Liveaquaria
Should I float and dump the fish or quick acclimate (20 mins) ?

I always acclimate, even just 20 minutes can really help. They've been stressed with shipping and a sudden change in a certain parameters could be too much For them. Doesn't take too long and makes things a little easier on the new arrivals:)
Just worried about the ammonia

How long has the tank been up? Nems are very delicate. If you’re adding all livestock at once, could spell danger.

The 1 clown didn’t make it :(
Everyone else is doing great. I’ll take pictures tomorrow when I turn the lights back on...want to minimize stress.

Done a lot with the tank, since I last updated this thread.
I bought a female midnight clown. I saw it for $30 and I couldn’t resist the price.The green nem has been hosting both of them, I sometimes see her kicking him out of the nem. Hard to get a good pic of them since they’re always moving.
Sadly the acid wash split. I found one split but can find the other one. Hopefully it pops upZ
I bought up 2 RBTAs from @YHSublime. They arrived today and are already opened up and looking great.
Wondering if the torch can defend for itself in the future against the nems ? If not I’m going to buy a single frag holder and place it on the back wall.

Everything was going good and I left the tank for 1 week vacation. I came back and thought everything looking good until I saw the firefish on the floor. Then I noticed the green BTAs aren’t doing so well but the rainbows are doing great. I noticed as the rock fill up with nems the urchin has less room to graze on so I decided to trade it for a really nice rbta.
Anyone have any suggestions on what fish I should get ?
