I think next fish will be a potters angel and then maybe a leopard wrasse. But I want some more corals first.

I swapped an elegance coral today for the live rock that I took out and didn't want. I did a deal with my mate who owns his own marine fish shop.
Definitely looking forward to seeing the new 'scape. That's awesome that you have a friend with a marine fish shop. Would love to see the Butterfly too.

I will upload some pics tomorrow. Yea it's cool that my friend has a shop, not only that but I work for a tropical/marine fish wholesaler so also get good deals through work lol. As far as fish keeping goes it don't cost anywhere near what it should do. It's all good.

I'm really pleased with the way it looks. There is more swimming space for the fish and it opens the tank up a bit more. Hope you like it.

Ok so I am trying to decide on a fairly large reef safe fish to put into the 150g it will be the last fish I add. As you know I have a regal tang, yellow tang, copperband butterfly, algae Blenny and a pink spot goby. The clowns are going. Can anyone suggest anything suitable please?

I have a Mystery Wrasse that just adds a whole other dimension to he tank and he doesn't bother anything.

I love my mystery wrasse too! He is personable and will sometimes eat shrimp or krill out of my hand. Plus that much color dodging in pans out of your rock is a cool plus. He is one of the favorites for people who look onto in and even has a nick name of mini salmon and pretty pink salmon for my nieces.
Another cool option I also love is a pink spotted or any color watchman goby. They are chill and will stay in a general area if that what you are looking for. Also he helps out my cuc by going out and about and picking up missed pieces.
