Are you near any bigger cities ..i see your in Florida,,i lived in Jacksonville for a few years ,,nice place
I'm in west palm so I'm further south but Miami isint to far from me and Orlando is only about 2 hours. Jacksonville is 4. I've been searching Craigslist for about a month but I only really found one thing that I kick myself for not buying. I found a 300 gallon that was in a restaurant that they stopped using for 500 I think. I waited to long to make up my mind! Darn it!! Ok! I'll definitely look into getting a bigger tank then! I really love the look of saltwater and even though I'm still cycling my 20tall freshwater I've already got my eyes set on a big saltwater tank lol. Problem is down here everyone's selling the whole thing! Tank with Rick and fish and all parts! And right now I don't have the room to keep it running. I'd have negotiate with my roommate to clear our half their stuff just for my fish tank. Lol. It's a 2 bedroom apartment but were on the first floor so no weight issues! Just space lol.

I kinda want a nemo tank. Is there any puffer that's compatible with the blue tang a 2 clown dish. Dk what kind yet
a saddle valentini puffer should be ok with these fish, its not the same fish as bloat on nemo, but i have one and its not aggressive at all
