So no fish yet?

My advice is to plan out your stock list and then get them least aggressive to most aggressive. Some fish do best when added at the same time to mitigate aggressive tendencies.

Pass on the lightfoot. They eventually get aggressive.

I agree. That's what I'm doing with mine and so far it's been great. Im getting my six line last.

Hahah thanks! Hes pretty shy, hopefully he perks up! I am still unsure, would a clown be best to add first or last? I want to add a very hardy fish first!

If you do add the clown, are you going to get an ocellaris? Or a percula?

My first two fish were a Clown and Sixline for my first SW tank. I think a Clown is a great fish to add first! Mine didn't become aggressive until I added another Clown.
