He was a gift, so unfortunately he didn't get as well of a QT as I would have liked, my tank wasn't set up so I let my buddy hold him as long as he could and then introduced him. He didn't appear ill.

I have learned that inevitably every time you buy a tank, the first thing you will do is see a fish you want that is too big for it.

I bought my first 29g so I could have a tang. Then I found out it was too small so I went to a 55g. And again, its too small for the long term. I'm going with a 125g and that will be it. If it doesnt fit in there I got problems lol

I fear that many fish I now want need a 180 or larger. I eventually was a tank large enough to keep a lionfish, dog face puffer, undulated trigger, and some big mean inverts.

Wow sounds pretty hardcore. lol I just want alot of color and movement. I wish i could have a whole tank of clownfish. I swore I hated them what with that nemo movie but I cant for the life of me figure out why I am so into them now. It must be their cute faces or something. I'm really hoping at least one set breeds.

I see those lionfish all the time, they are so complicated looking! And scary too lol They need a 180g? They sell em in petco over here for like $30

No they don't, but to keep everything I want in one tank it will need to be a 180. Yeah, not all lions are expensive. Some of them definitely can be though

The reef part of my tank is screwing me over now, theres so many fish that are great but arent reef safe. I've been tossing the idea around of going fowlr so I can get some serious SW fish.
