    Stock List Advice needed!

    If you like your peppermint shrimp avoid the pistol shrimp... Firefish either have to be single, mated pair, or in groups larger than 6+ or else the strongest will kill everyone... The rest of your stock looks good imo... Btw love that you've got an emerald crab!!! I love my Emmet haha

    75 Gallon Tank Can't decide

    I'd do a pair of angels, a pair of rams, 8-10 minor tetras, 12 cardinals (never liked neons), 12 cories (could divide in half for 2 sets of 6 different cory species), 1 male bn or 2 female BNs... This is how'd I'd do it... I'm not one for aggression so tiger barbs and kribs are on my anti list...

    Converting Guppies to saltwater

    Alright they all made it the 24 hour mark and are eating like wolves! So next Sunday I will start will making them saltwater by adding about 5-10% saltwater with every water change... So should take between 5-10 weeks to have them fully salt!

    First saltwater aquarium

    For saltwater you want 10-15x turn over rate... So 550-850 combined... But you also need to take into account dead spots... If you have any red cyano (aweful stuff) will appear and hard to get rid of... Be sure to read all the sticked threads in the saltwater beginners area to learn way more...

    Tank and fish help, too many fish?

    Take the crab back... they need completely different water conditions that your tank has... you literally need a half land half water for it and the water must be brackish (sg of 1.05-1.08 is best) in freshwater the crab will slowly die in maybe 3 months and without access to land will sufficate...
