You can get a pair, make sure LFS person can tell the difference and help pick the pair.

I've not seen that kind of behavior out of CB's. Not saying it couldn't happen, but it's not a definite.

I think I've heard of gold or yellow coral banded shrimp being non aggressive so maybe those would be an option?

And rookie. Is that to say that your getting a breeding trio? That would look really nice. Banggais are one of my favorite fish. I also thought dottybacks where meAn.

Trio will become two once paired from my understanding. Missed 3 in the original post. You can have 3+ of other types of cardinal fish.

That would be in agreement with LA -

Quote:
Though the Banded Coral Shrimp can be aggressive towards other Banded Coral Shrimp and smaller shrimp of different species, most are peaceful towards fish, corals, and invertebrates within your aquarium.
I take it that they should probably be considered risky though.


Any other thoughts on the stock list? I can knock the number of cardinals down to 1 if needed, LA indicated they were ok in small groups.

I think you should get as many banggai cardinals as you can. They are really interesting and striking beautiful fish.

Yeah, my wife likes them too. I promised her that every fish in the tank would be agreed on by both of us, and I'm not going to break that promise.... but luckily, every fish I like, she does too!


Here are some pictures of my sump to try and explain what I was saying previously in the thread-

Overflow-


Back side-


Under the stand -





The bubbles I mentioned -
