I'm considering ordering some bioluminescent brittle stars, i found a site that has them for 24.99 for 3-4 inch ones. don't you think it would be nuts to just touch the starfish, and it starts glowing??? i will likely have the 75 g running in a week or so then it will be fish ready about 6 weeks after that. i am seriously considering what to put in the 75. i have a list of candidates but what would you do?

And this will be a reef in the 75g as well?

this will be a reef. i don't have any fish in the 75, that will be started in a few days. it is going to be a very complicated plan. my plans are to basically run them all together, with a 55 gallon sump and 20 long ato. its going to take me a night or two to draw out my plans but i have them all in my head all together it will be a 75 next to a 29 with a 55 sump under the 75 and the ato will go behind everything, so i might have to make one out if acrylic. there will also be a 3 gallon pico cylinder fueled to the whole system. in storage there is 2 ten gallon qt tanks and one 2 for the bigger. I'm going to draw up some plans and start deciding on equipment in the next couple days. it will be my first large project

wow that sounds like a very ambitious plan! I barely kept it straight in my head reading it. lol

Are you thinking any large showpiece fish yet, like a tang, angel or something like that?
i would sytart thinking of stocking the tank from the biggest fish down. This way you wont end up overstocking, I should have done that with my 90g aggressive tank, now I am stuck pretty much with what I have already as I want a large fish now. Shoulda gotten it in the beginning and then added the others after that, makes more sense.

yes i am thinking of one big fish and the biggest will be a yellow eye kole tang and coral beauty angel. for the 29 i plan to keep the clown, add a banggai and pajama cardinal and a watchman goby with tiger pistol shrimp. for the 75 I'm thinking the yellow eye, coral beauty or flame angel, snowflake/starry blenny, a black and a regular snowflake ocellaris. as you can see i like a mixture of color and personalities in the tank if you have any comments or recommendations feel free..... i also realllllly want a mandarin, and with all the space for pods to breed, i think i could pull it off.......eventually

Youve got the blenny covered, how about a goby of some sort? I also love flamehawks, but some people have issues with them and inverts. I have a tank ful of snails, hermits and even a shrimp and my falco hawk is fine with them.

what goby would you suggest for the 75? I'm already planning on a blue or pink spotted watchman in the 29. i want to make sure my stocking list will all work out together. and i want to be sure to eventually get a regular or green spotted mandarin
