    Default FOWLR Suggestions

    So I picked up another tank, it's a 36" bow front. I can make it into another reef tank but that would make 3 plus additional money for lights. I got a great deal and I couldn't pass up the tank....so I'm just debating now

    Anyways, what kind of crazy fish can I keep in this size tank. I don't care if they eat coral as this may just be a FOWLR.

    Here are some of my favorates and yes I know...it's too small of a tank but it doesn't change the fact that I like them

    Lionfish
    Puffer
    Cow Fish
    Queen angel

    I just want something different

    +1 on the angler fish idea.

    If it were me I'd probably go with either seahorses, pipefish or may be a Papuan Toby Puffer.

    Good luck and keep us posted,
    Tom

    Default Seahorse tank

    I agree with Tom. A species specific tank would be perfect for that tank size. I have always dreamed about a SeaHorse tank - would be a lot of fun!

    Not sure about a sea horse tank, always have to be perfect, feed all the time, not sure I'm ready for that type of commitment.
    angler, puffer and scorpion

    Can they Co exist? How many different fish can I keep in this size tank. I only have a pair of clowns in my 30 cube. I know I can have more but the balance is right because I don't want to add anything that may sit or knock over my corals. But since this won't be a coral tank, I don't have to worry about that
