Terrance thanks for the impute.
I am beginning to think about stocking my 55g and figured 5-6 fish is a good number with 4-5 small to medium fish and 1 larger fish.
2x True Percula Clownfish (wifes pick)
1x Bangaii Cardinals
1xDiamond Watchman Goby
1x green mandarin(will be last fish added, depending on a lot of factors and final decision will be may a few months from now. Is the fish that might be omitted)
These are the fish that I am considering add one of, but I'm not sure one which one yet.
I love this fish; however, I have read it is hard to distinguish from coral eating cousin.(input from someone that has one would be great)
2. yellow pyramid butterfly
said to be reef safe with caution (anyone have any experience with
4.Longnose Atlantic Butterflyfish( said to be hardy and reef safe with caution)
5. copper band-low on the list because of the difficulty to get this fish to eat.
6.marine betta-I love this fish and know personally 2 people who keep this fish in reefs with similar fish without a problem for 2+years. I have this one low on the list because it is extremely shy and would not be a good show fish.(plus they can get huge. one of my friends has had his for 4 years and it is 8+ inches. He did tell me they grow very slow and if I had plans to upgrade like 2 years out. I would be fine.
Any impute would be great.
