what do I get now?

I have a 46 gal bowfront. It has been established for 8 months using jetty fish to initiate everything. I have added a bar goby, condylactis, blue devil (that killed my other damsels), brittle starfish, feather duster, and a pink skunk clownfish. My levels are great. I want to add either a whisker coral or bubble tip anemome. Any suggestions?

I started with ocean water and used filter system. I had several sergeant majors in the tank for 5 months until my levels leveled out. Then they went back to the ocean and I started buying fish. I am in no hurry but trying to decide whether to go with corals or anenome? Thanks

sounds like a deal--and i can do more research. I have pretty good lighting--according to the aquatic science teacher at my school. And I am content with all that I have. I hate to buy things and have them die. Thanks everyone. I am so glad I found this site!
