The next fish I will be looking for is a good deal on a or some clowns and possibly a yellow tang unless I come across something else interesting. This goby though is great, he is so active he hasn't stopped sifting and building his little den since I got him. I also plan on getting him a pistol shrimp as a companion when I find one.
that sounds great....just make sure you know that your fish are reef friendly....or if you want to take a chance....know that the fish you choose might just sorta pick at your coral.....i had an angel that didnt pick at my coral most of them do pick....he ate the mysis shrimp....and i think by keeping em well fed it seemed as though the desire to pick was less.....but thats the chance we take....some people have a fish tank as well as a reef tank.
clowns are nice...they will host is a lot of different corals....mine host in a hairy mushroom....i personally stayed away from the anemone for my clowns....i didnt want my other stuff getting stung....im sure there are a lot of people using anemones though....but just starting out in this thing i didnt want to lose too much stuff and then get dis interested in it. i took the advice "mostly" from a respected friend and it worked....the things i lost were when i got off of his direction.
when you choose your clowns there are many to choose from....i love the maroon ones but i think they are pretty agressive....check it out....im glad your doing the research...youll be glad too.
the tropicorium is a great place to shop too !!!! its well worth the drive. the guys are great there....not that i have anything against any of the guys there....i just kinda hung close to Bryan....he more or less took me under his wing...and i am greatfull...will be getting something soon from there when money comes in......i think i have room for a nice birdsnest.
