I've left them on the frag plug, they will spread over and all over it so that you won't be able to see it eventually. I've been gluing the discs to the rock using coral glue lately when I get zooa frags, it seems to make it sturdier. I glue them to rock rubble pieces though, not the large rocks just in case I want to move them later.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

It's been nearly 2 weeks since adding my first two fish, so this weekend I'm heading down to the LFS to see what's goig to be my next addition

To be honest.. No idea. I really want a scooter blenny down the road, so I can't get te six-line wrasse I had planned.

I really like the royal gramma, but they are like $80 in Australia and you only come across one once so often.

I also really like the lOngnose hawkfish, but I don't want them eating my peppermint shrimp.



One option I had considered was 3 dispar anthers, but I've heard they are very hard to keep alive.

Yep, unfortunately Longnose Hawks are notorious for shrimp-eating. Royal Grammas also eat pods, so one of those would also take away from your pod population. I am like you, I go into the pet shop and see if anything catches my eye. If I am informed on it, and know it's requirements, and I like it, I will consider buying it. (Also, if I am not sure about something I pull out the handy-dandy iPhone, .)

Haha yep. Thanks for the info on the gramma, that sucks though! Didn't realize they ate pods too. This blenny is crossing lots off the list, but they're just so awesome lol.

I agree, the Blennys are very cool!

I didn't read up so I'm not sure if you have these or if you've crossed them off your list: A watchman goby, chromis, some kind of Blenny, cardinal fish or maybe a flame hawk?

I've never seen a watchman goby in an LFS here in Australia. I've seen one online for $100 lol.

I find chromis quite boring, I'm getting a scooter (dragonet I know), bangai cardinals aren't bad but I want fish that are more active, and the flame hawk will eat pods/my peppermint shrimp lol

I heard the royal gramma doesn't actively hunt pods, but
may just snap up uncouple if they are in it's cave. So I might get a royal granma.

That leaves me with 2 possible fish spots.
