Shoot me some ideas people!! LOL

Thanks

Wait, I am confused, would you like ideas for the 60g or 90g, or both, lol.

What about this Gold Lined Cleaner Goby, I think it looks pretty cool.

(It is next to the Neon Goby on the page)

I've heard they are hard to keep for any length of time, I've avoided them since. lol cool lookign fish though. I like the blue grudegon(sp) too. lol

I'm kinda leaning towards getting a few of the blue/green chromis. If they school like the ones I have in the 125g that'd be awesome.

Did you look at the fish I listed? See anything that raises a red flag? They are all considered peaceful except for the clowns that are semi aggressive.
You don't think I want too many fish do you? The bulk of the stocking will be from the 2 tanks I have already.

I've been thinking about the clown fish situation I have on my hands. There will always be a pair in the 125g so that one is easy. BUT I kinda wanna move the b&w clowns from the cube to the 90g. Doing that would allow me to get another set of clowns for this 60g. I have always wanted snowflakes or black ice clowns. And the price seems to have dropped on them which is a nice bonus. lol

I think i am going to get a mag 9.5 for the return by the way. I can't get the tank and stand til the end of the month anyway. This means I have a 1500gph pump as backup if I ever need it.

I've been giving corals some thought too. I am pretty sure the LED fixture I bought will be enough to keep anything I want. It's a 120watt total with 3watt leds. Against my better judgement I am considering an anemone for this tank. The lighting will be there so the first hurdle will be easy. I've been looking at the red bubble tip nems, can anyone help out on this?

Lots of questions! I kept telling everyone I would be on here non stop once the build got under way. Sorry for all the questions, I still have like 20 more in my head. LOL

So come on folks speak up! LOL I need some help.

I just looked at the Tribal Blenny and he looked pretty cool too.

I think adding the Chromis with your micro fish would be a perfect idea. It would make for a very interesting and balanced tank!

Snowflake and Black Ice Clowns are actually my two all time favorite Clownfish species. They are two of my all-time favorite fish too! They look amazing, I would like to get some kind of designer Clown for my 125g (to pair off with my normal Occellaris in there)!

As far as the list goes, nothing screams "not getting along" to me. Then again, I don't know a lot about some Gobies and Blennies so I am not 100% sure.

List looks great carey! I have a question though, can you add 24 fish because they are all so small? Im only adding 5-6 to my 30 gallon, and they are all nano fish too..so doesnt that mean you should shoot for 10-12 fish?

Im just wondering, i think the tank will look awesome
