    Bioload question

    I have a 75 gallon with 25 gallon sump with 1 kole tang 3.5" and 2 saddleback clowns 3". Im wondering if it would be allright to add 3 small chromis in there as far as bioload goes. Im prety sure itll be allright I just want to see what the concensus is on this board. Thanks for sharing your oppinion.

    Depends on your skimmer. If you have a decent one I see no problem as long as you have waited a while since your last addition to balance things. I have a ridiculous bioload, however, I use a refuge and a needle wheel skimmer that is 2 times the capacity of my tank. The chromis will look cool as they stay at the top of the water column and generally stay together.
    If my wife asks, it was only $20.

    Hardware:
    220 Gal Mostly SPS Reef, 66 gal sump with refuge, 33 gal refugium, Gen-X Mak-5 Return, 3 x IceCap 250 MH, 2 x 110 VHO, Deltec APF600 Skimmer and a Deltec AP-600, Geo 6-18 Calcium Reactor, 2 x Tunze Stream 6100, Profilux Plus II EX Controller.

    You have a total of 100 gallons of water there so IMO your will not get yourself into any trouble by adding a few chromis. Just be sure to QT them first ..... right???
