    Default Couple Quick Fish Pics From My Sub-Tropical Tank

    Had the camera out and grabbed a couple pics of the fish in my 60g sub-tropical NPS tank, tank runs at 69 degrees currently, looking to drop it another degree or two. No chiller in use currently... Enjoy!

    All four fish - pair of chaoti leopard wrasses and pair of bandit angels:

    Thanks!

    I just got a group (6) catalina gobies yesterday that are in QT. I wanted to see how they would do in a colder aquarium. High 60s is on the high side of their natural environment. Hoping for the best with these guys but only time will tell.

    Not looking to add many other fish into this tank. Will be a pair of shrimp gobies, pair of basslets and a few ventralis anthias if they acclimate well.

    Just wondering if my drool has made it your way yet? lol Stunning fish Scott, I hope the variant holds like it seems to be doing on the little one, they are awesome regardless but thats super sweet. I know you told me about the incomplete bar, but have you ever noticed the tail isnt quite as black as most of the other bandits as well?
    Yup the tail is more of a greyish black. She is pretty wild, time will tell. Worst case I end up with a 'normal' bandit which is just fine in my opinion.

    This tank is 36" x 22" x 18" rimless makes it about 60 gallons. Very open aquascaping. It took a while for me to pull the trigger on bandits (years) and finally ended up with a nice pair. The chaoti male I have had for about 5-6 months now, the female about 2 months.

    Sub-tropical / cool water tank. This tank currently runs at about 69 degrees and I am hoping to drop it a little more yet. The angels are deep water angels and can not live in 78+ degree water long term. The wrasses are adjusted down to the cooler temps.

    Then you use a chiller? Where do these fish come from with the cool temp? What else do you have/are getting?
    Hope you don't mind all the questions, I find this very intriguing. Anything new and I wanna know about it

    The angels come from Hawaii in deeper water 100+ feet down generally. Tank has a bunch of non-photos like dendros and rhyzos. Eventually it will have a ton of gorgonians when I get the auto feeder hooked up.

    As for other fish, I have 6 catalina gobies in QT right now I am hoping do well. Then a couple anthias will be added and a couple basslets.

    No chiller is use currently, tank is set up to be extremely low energy use and uses evaporation as cooling.
