My Petco has saltwater fish, but rarely corals. Looks like yours had some nice pieces.

I'm following along...

The only ones I got from petco are the zoa in the last pic and the Duncan, the rest were from one of my near by lfs's

But I do have to say, the local petco is one of the best I've seen, they have some nice frags most of the time. Fish are alittle less trustable

Candycane head I put in fell off the skeleton. I've had it happen with frogspawn, result didn't end well. Any it was to save it?

Added a small head of hammer today, along with a green leather, and some random polyps.
All small, nothing to impressive.

Almost bought a red scooter. There was a ruby next to it for the same price but it was on hold.
Maybe if they order some more in I'll buy a ruby for this tank. The regular red was a little skinny so I passed. Would have been cool to get him

Please don't add a dragonet. They will slowly starve to death, even if they eat prepared foods they are very difficult to sustain.

Your right, part of me still wants one but your very right, if I lost it I would be very bummed.

That does lead me into my next question,

What to stock?

Only thing I'm set on is my baby pair of clowns and some kind of goby, I think I high fin. I think I want one more maybe. Something that's an open swimmer, royal gramma?

Well my royal gramma stays in the open but they're not known to be open water. Most I've seen stay near rocks and dart back in when approached

Could one get aggressive? I believe I could get him to be less shy.
