All depends on what you want. Aggressive, semi aggressive, happy clown fish type of tank etc.... And if you are going to want corals at some point. That will cut a few fish off the potential list.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Definitely going to be a mixed reef. Clownfish are a must as my gf loves the pair we have in the nano now, so I really like the black snowflake clowns! Might have to save up! Other than that, I was thinking about the following:

Blue Reef Chromis
Cardinalfish
Starry Blenny

Since I love my Tailspot Blenny, I was thinking about the Dusky Yellow Streak Blenny. That little guy looks awesome, even if he does get lost in a 75!

What are your thoughts on an Engineer Goby? I've seen you speak of them, but I can't remember whether or not you've mentioned if they can be jumpers.

I have an engineer in my 20g rimless now, open top with no problems. I havent heard of them being notorious jumpers either. They do get real big real fast though. lol Mine is a real mush, he sleeps curled up with the clown gobies. very cool fish. Mine is an open tank swimmer cause the rocks are all claimed by other fish and he's too mellow to fight. They are famous for their digging though so thats a real concern.

Your list looks great! I love my blue reef chromis, they add such life to my 125g! and their color has not faded like I thought it would.

That's what I wanted to hear!! Thanks!! There's a toss up between either an Bartlett's Anthias and a Lemonpeel Angel as a possibility as well... So many decisions! Definitely don't want to overstock and have a water change/angry tank!

I think that's why i have so many tanks, there are endless fish options. LOL

The bartletts are nice too, very active fish and pretty as well. I had a lemonpeel for about 2 days. It was a friendly fish and seemed nice enough lol. I ordered it from live aquaria so I'm guessing the shipping stress had something to do with her demise, apparently angels are extra sensitive fish.

I'm sorry to hear that... Never a good time when there's a loss. I'm lucky enough to live relatively close to That Fish Place, so if I see something I like on LiveAquaria, I can pop over to their site and see if they have it. I lost a Purple Firefish that was shipped shortly after introducing it, so I force myself to wait for someone local to get something if I want it. Unfortunately, it's the waiting that gets to me every time...

By the way, just ran across your thread pertains to your recent run of bad luck, absolute bummer and sorry to hear. But don't give up!! Your threads on here have definitely educated (and still educating) me along with many others!! Thanks again!!
