    Just got to my parents (house sitting) tank was half empty. Ugh!!

    Grabbed all the fish and corals and put them into buckets. Bringing it all to my 150. I have a pair of clowns in my 150 already. Is that tank big enough to add another pair of clowns?

    Thanks!!

    Is your sump a short term option for them?

    I've never tried. But I frequently read of people having issues with multiples in a 6 ft tank.

    You could use egg create to create a divider for your tank until you find a solution. I do that for acclimation of new fish with my tang.

    All fish got transferred to my tank.

    The two matted file fish are getting along nicely. I put their clowns in my sump and moved the single clown in my sump to a different chamber. The damsels, inverts, and gobies are enjoying the bigger space.Over all everyone is getting along nicely.

    Unfortunately at my parents house it was discovered that the water made it under their floating floor so the floor has been taken up. Then every piece was hand washed.

    Now we are cleaning the sub floor several times before the floor is re-laid.

    Under grow lights? I doubt well as the spectrum is widely different (red vs blue). I don't know of anyone who's tried though.
