bangaii cardinal or purple firefish?

Which one produces more waste? I have fallen in love with the bangaii. Thank you for your inputs!

This is a rather odd question, no offense lol. I would say the firefish produces less waste, but really it matters not as long as regular maintenence is conducted and the tank is not over fed.

oh that is a hard question...I LOVE cardinal fish..I have a pj cardinal... but do you have an open top aquarium, or do you have a nice sealed top? because fire fish are jumpers...

I have to agree that it really does not matter as long as you have a good clean up crew and practice good PWC`s

The reason I ask is because I'm going to be adding a 5th fish to my 37 reef, I'm so anal about PWCs I figure it should be no harm. The bangaii should be able to take care of himself fine in my reef.


Final fish list will be;

Pair of percula clown fish
Randalls shrimp goby
sixline wrasse
bangaii cardinal
