Thats why I got mine, to make a fullblown reef vs a "fish" tank per se. I think the biggest fish I have in the 60g are my b&w clowns. I have a bunch of gobies and blennies too but it looks pretty nice in my opinion. The full blown reef has had to wait as I am infested with aipastia at the moment. lol But thats what I think the cubes are best for. Just my opinion.

If you want a tang then a 75g is the bare minimum in my experience. Even then, you would have to stick with one, but you could have a foxface and even a school of fish if you wanted. Its that 4 foot length that makes the difference, not the extra 15g of water.

If you have the 60g already just stock it with ":happy" small fish, they can be just as cool as the large fish. lol
Wait, so i can get a foxface? If not is there any nice semi-big fish (5-7 inches) that u could get? How about a school of blue green chromis aswell?

Does it have a top? If so I would get a bluespotted jawfish or a flame hawkfish! Although the hawk might eat anything smaller than it lol

No, but i can get a lid and make a canopy. Jawfish i have heard are hard to care for, and hawks seem kinda freaky and aggresive.

If this is still the 37g tank you were talking about then no, you can't do a fox face. They need a much larger tank still. You have to keep the size of your tank in line with your expectations.

Jawfish need a deep sand bed so you will be looking at sacrificing 5"-6" of tank space to substrate in order to keep one.

I wasnt planning on one anyway, they look alot like blennys but are 5 times as hard to care for, maybe 10

Suggested tank size is 125. I would think that's overshooting it a little and might go with as small as a 100

As I posted earlier .
You can keep a one spot Foxface in a 70 gal
The Foxface lo is a entirely different fish ,
It grows bigger and even more expensive to buy .
