OK! Tomorrow is the day. I am picking up my 22 Ilangi tomorrow. :dancing: :dancing: :dancing: What do I need to do the first day or so?

Leave the lights off for 48 hours?

No food for 48 houurs?

Have Clout or Metro on hand?

Clout vs. Metro: Which is easier to use?

Tank will be up and running with 2 established filters so that base is covered. If I need to medicate, I have other filters I can swap in if I need to after the meds have run their course.

All advice will be heeded!

Looks like u are well prepared

I would also have no rockwork in the tank for the first couple of weeks while u quarantine them

Cloat is a much harsher drug and will stain all your silicone, i prefer the metro, also wont hurt soaking there food in it before feed time during the quarantine period

All the best with your new ilangi :thumb:

I feed lightly on the first day Metro soaked food.
If I had clout I might use that.
