My local pet shop did a even swap for lace rock 50#

If you go with a community tank, I have a fish suggestion. I just got a red chromis this last week. It's beautiful. I had never seen one before, only the blue and green ones. Here's a pic:

Don't be sorry to say, he's getting along great with everyone and he's beautiful. Chromis are in the damsel family, after all, so that doesn't surprise me. From what I read, they're called both red chromis and red honey damsel. He's beautiful either way.
