Fishfriends05, wow thanks for picking my post as your first and welcome to AA! Thanks for the info about the starfish, our sand is the black tahitian so we'd be able to see where it is with no problem unless he's way under there. We already like the royal gramma.

Hara, thanks, I didn't know there was a difference and now I do.

Unless this is an old tank, I would shy away from the mandarin. They require a very well established sand bed to keep from starving. The goatfish may have the same problem although you may be able to get him to eat prepared foods. While I have never had a sand sifting star, I have read that they will decimate a DSB. I don't know this for a fact so it's something you'd want to research carefully before adding one. JMHO. I've found that my blue legs won't bother my snails as long as I keep some empty shells laying around in the tank for them to move in to. Most LFS's can supply empty shells at a nominal cost.

I'd suggest a coral beauty. Along with being very colorful fish, they're easy to care for, eat a ton and are very active.

We had ruled out a mandarin, it's a new tank and realize it would eventually starve. We really love the blue spot jawfish, we have a really deep sand bed for either a jawfish or a goby. But 60 to 70 bucks has anyone had a bluespot jawfish, is it worth that kind of money? I've seen the six line wrasse, I really like that one too! The coral beauty is so beautiful but I don't want to get something that is going to eat my corals later.

Ok, here's what we've decided (when we get some $$)

Cryptocentrus cinctus : Yellow Watchman Goby
Gramma loreto: Royal Gramma Basslet

We will be taking (this will be the fun part) one cleaner and one peppermint shrimp from our 29.

although this may change depending on what responses I get from this...

We'd like to get a pistol shrimp, we think it will not only be cool to watch him with the goby, but maybe educational too. Thing is, with this mixture of shrimp will it cause a problem? We ruled out the Flame Hawk due to he likes small shrimp and the pistol shrimp would be on his menu for sure.

My husband would like to get 2 more fish, we'd like peaceful but reef safe. LOL doesn't leave much huh!

Look forward to comments!
