So, 3 new additions today..............  a small Pipefish, a baby Cracker, and until someone tells me otherwise, I'm going with "Baby Hake."

 

Sadly, I think I'm going to have to let my big Fluke go.  He absolutely could take the cracker.

Build some tank racks. Then you can keep all of them inside.

That is an option, but at some point, I have to try to keep this under control.  We're just getting started, and it's already a little nuts.

 

In a perfect world I want 90 full of exotics and predators that can coexist, the 40 full of cool fish that can't be in the 90 for their own safety, and that little 10 reserved for a handful of fish that are so small and fragile that they basically need to be in solitary.

So, a little inventory, which no doubt will change almost daily:

 

In the 90:

 

5" White Perch - His days are numbered.

6" Spot - His days are numbered.

8" Striper - He may stay till next Spring.  50/50

6" Hake - He's a keeper as long as he's healthy.

9" Fluke - He may go later today.

2 x 6" Fluke - They may stay till next Spring.  40/60

5" Fluke - He's staying till next Spring unless I can replace him with a 3-4" Fluke.

3" Cracker - He's staying at least until next Spring.

2" Rock Crab - Will probably keep him till he dies,

Miscellaneous Blue Claws and Hermits - kept primarily to clean up the bottom.

 

In the 40:

 

Sea Horse - Stays till he dies.

2 x 8" Pipes - Will stay as long at they're healthy.

5" Pipe - Will stay as long as he's healthy.

1" and 2" Gobies - Will stay till they die.

2" Stickle Back - Will stay till he dies.

Miscellaneous Blue Claws and Hermits - kept primarily to clean up the bottom.

 

In the 10:

 

4" Hogchoker - Will stay if I can get him eating, which I have not yet seen.

1.5" Fluke - WIll stay until next Spring.

 

I think that's everyone, for now.

Well, the Hake has settled in, literally.  Instead of turning white like the sand, like most of the others, he opted to just bury himself in it.

Didn't know they did that. I used to have a yellow coris wrasse that would bury itself under by 2"+. It did it when it was threatened or at night.

This Hake is weird.  Light are all out, but for the tv.  Now he's out of the sand, but laying down on his side on top of it.  Looks dead, but I can clearly see him breathing.  The Perch, Spot and Striper are all swimming around like normal, but he's laying there in some kind of trance.  I guess it's "asleep?"

The gas cans and extra tanks are outside.  The tanks in use, and the tools, are inside.
