I'm not new to fish but I am to new to anything African. I have kept mainly New World Cichlids and Stingrays but have now decided to start off with some Tangs. I am looking at keeping some shell dwellers in a 40 breeder that I am picking up tomorrow but have no idea as to what kind of filtration to use and stocking limits. I am leaning towards a wet / dry and possibly a Fluval 405 that I have but I am thinking that they will create way too much water movement. I plan on using sand for the substrate and plenty of shells and a few Anubis and rocks for the decorations. My questions are...
1. Will that be way too much of a flow rate for the tank?
2. What should my stocking level be with the shell dwellers?
3. WHat are some good tank mates?

Hey lil_pendejo, welcome to ACF!! wave.gif

1. Yes. I would use just the canister, and have a spraybar on the outlet.

2. A species group of 6-10 and provide sufficient shells.

3. Cyprichromis, Julidochromis, Compressiceps/ Calvus.
