    Fish Notes . . . It seem about 1/2 the fish I put in to my display tank, end up getting moved out for one reason or another. Any way I think i am going to start keeping the fish in the bags they came in, it will save alot of time trying to catch them. My next tank, i am going with canned tuna fish, the upside out weighs the downside.
    the watchman goby !

    Why have you changed your mind about the blenny? Knowing that might help with suggestions on other fish.

    This is from what I've read about the Midas Blenny. Max size=6" Can be aggressive towards gobys. That's it...I just think my tank is way to small for a 6" fish.

    How about a jawfish? Those are very entertaining fish to watch and would be a good fish for a tank that size.

    Look at basslets. Very good fish imo. Most are generally docile; they add color and movement with-out the headaches. I have a Swissguard with a helfrichi firefish, a pipefish, and 2 blennies (barnacle and tailspot) No problems. They're very hardy little fish and will eat anything.

    I was considering a Royal Gramma, or maybe a Chalk Bass. I'd love a wrasse

    I'd stay with something sand dwelling such as a jawfish or goby, because too many fish swimming openly in the watercolumn might cause the angel to become aggressive.

    I don't have any other fish that swims around. I have a Tangora goby and a fire fish who hides all the time.
