Alright, after months of preparation, the tank is taking shape, getting close to thinking about stocking it. I am going to be using Gulf live rocks from lr
.com, so I am thinking about trying to match all the inhabitants to that region. Are there many attractive/colorful and readily available caribbean fish, coral and invertebrate species that I could fill out the tank with, or would I be better off not worrying about the origin of the species so much, and incorporate some indo-pacific species? i am interesting in creating an authentic biotope, but i also want to create an attractive, balanced, and harmonious reef.
