why not order online by yourself.

just curious, I stopped ask my lfs to special order anything for me, cuz they always forgot.
I ordered a bag of ghost shrimps every week, but they always said they forgot to order....

Well there are a few reasons I can't. First of all I don't have room for another tank lol. Also I'm in high school so I have a tight budget. Also my mom would almost certainly not let me. She tells me I need to focus on my 55g lol. She's already upset about the money gone into it. Today she told me "we don't have room for mts in this house" XD.

MTS isn't bad if you have an unlimited budget and no parents/family members to constantly :censor: at you.

XD

Ok I've re-thought stocking again. xD

I like the heniochus, I hope to get 3 of them (one for me and my brothers) and a pair of clowns because no SW tank is complete without clowns lol. I also want to get maybe 2 chromis.

Probably want to get a firefish goby, if I get one of those can I get a watchman goby too? and if I get either one or two of the gobys, can I get a lawnmower blenny too?



I tried deciphering the "compatibility chart" on foster and smith's website but it's too small for my taste.

As for inverts, 2 cleaner shrimp, a bunch of hermits, and once the tank gets established a starfish or two, and finally a pencil urchin.

If I get (most of) the stuff above, will there be a problem with getting a sailfin tang? They look really cool to me but tangs (as far as I know) aren't nice to other fish..

I too am on a high school budget (which is like a few bucks lol). I kept asking for a clown fish, then I explained that if I turned the 29G I have into SW, a clown was about all I'd be able to put in there. And I kept pointing out other reasons for another tank and finally they just let me do it because im a good kid ^_^. (my dad said he's just happy I'm not spending it on drugs or something instead.)

PP5, in regards to your questions.

You can have a firefish and a watchman goby as well. The watchman gobies are agressive towards other things in the tank that have the same shape as them.. so i would think that getting two watchman would not be the greatest of ideas, but then again, your tank is pretty large, so who knows. Also, blennies do fine with gobies, so i would say the lawnmower blenny would be fine as well.

And for the sailfin tang, they have a minimum of 125G. So i don't think it would be wise to put it in a 75G, even though the 75G is pretty big. Tangs in general usually just establish a pecking order.. i've never heard of them killing other fish.. but then again, i don't own a tang, so no experience in that department.

Be aware that if you do get hermit crabs, it will be hard to keep snails, since the hermits will most likely kill the snails for their shells. People throw empty shells in the tank thinking this would stop the hermits from killing the snails for their shells.. but the fact is, that the hermits have to find the empty shells.. and they usually find the snails first.. lol. Also, over time the shells get pushed to the bottom of the sandbed. Assuming you have a sandbed, and sand sifting critters. Also you should do careful research on sea stars because some of them eat coral.
