Looks like you got a couple of N. fusco in there. Maybe you should update your fishlist so we can see what you got.

Yeah, but things can happen. The problem with really elaborate rock work and what not is that there are tons of places for a dead fish to get stuck.

Would a dead fish in 450 gallons of water cause a big problem?

Well...wouldn't be the first time I found a nothing but a spine in my tank!!! :)

Actually though if u look at my TANKS and see the description....almost all that rock is raised off the bottom with jets underneath to help keep things clean...should help a bit.

It may and it may not. I am just saying.

Yeah, I saw that but the fact still stands that hopefully you never have to net a fish out of there. lol

Pretty sweeeet deal you got there...why not try some larger haps on for size in a tank that big though...like some nice fosso. rostratus or dolphins? Those two would make a nice combo! :)

I doubt that the fish he has in there (at their present size) would cause anything negative if they died. Now - when these fish get to their full size (the Fusco that was mentioned - for example) would cause a major problem...

I don't see a decaying fish as being anything to be concerned over....especially not a major concern. I had a very large wrasse pretty much rot to nothing when this was salt. I found it weeks later after thinking it had been eaten by an eel. I never noticed any issues with the water or lost a fish as a result.

Anyway, I've got more than sufficient filtration, a huge UV and a detnitrifier to keep nitrates near zero. But more than that, I've got a very forgiving 400+ gallons of water.
