Ok. I'm jumping on the bandwagon. Lol. I've had a 30 gal drilled tank up and running with nothing but inverts for about 6 months now. I'm going to make it an angler tank. I'm thinking just rock and plants. Do you have any other fish in there? I'm thinking maybe a matted filefish and that's it. In your experience do you think this would work?

Great to hear- these are awesome fish... We keep this up and we may have to change the name to AAA - Angler and Aquarium Advice!

I'm planning a reef with mainly softies, leather, zoos, mushrooms, sponges, and macro algae.

I actually got the idea for a macro tank from lfs hopping. I've seen quite a few anglers beautifully blended in with different plants. I don't have a lot of experience with anglers and was hoping it wasn't bad for the beauty.

Only ones that will become food..Sooner or later he'll get the firefish..I have seen anglers with fish hanging out of there mouths till they can work it down.
I would only keep an angler and thats it

Well after getting my maxijet working properly I have decided that, in my BC I will have enough flow, just with the return that I won't need to add another PH - save me $235...

Here is a pic of what's happening to my sand with the maxijet return pointed to the front glass and the surface.
