    Using Nutri- seawater to start tank

    Yes I would add bacteria and let it run for a few weeks then add hermit crabs and snails. Then after a week test your water and if all looks good then I would get a small fish

    75g Stocking Advice

    I agree I recommend only 1 angel per tank as they can get quite Territorial, coral beauty’s are the usually easiest to find and keep

    QT tank

    Yes you should let it cycle first before you start to add fish, you can add some already established live rock, or some bacteria like turbo start.

    Aptasia! Get rid of it ASAP it’ll take over your tank. Peppermint shrimp sometimes eat them. You can get aptasia X which will kill them

    Are the nitrates still that high? What kind of light do you have?

    Tank Set up (beach sand)

    I wouldn’t use beach sand you don’t know what’s in it, I say it’s much safer to use regular sand from your LFS

    where to buy cheap copepods

    Try your LFS see if they can order live copepods. I say a few months when you start seeing copepods all over the glass and rocks I say that would be a good time to add.

    55 gallon salt tank

    It’s possible it could be a pest anemone (aptasia) if it came from your LFS live rock. Can you post a picture? If it is a aptasia you want to kill it ASAP!
