As far as my research has been on the brotulid it seems to point to it being a relatively easy fish to care for. But I'll take some more time and see if I come up with anything negative about them.

Thanks guys!
Are brotulids the same as brutulas? Is this it? If so, it is rated a 1 on the scale of hardiness. it is a shame, it is such a cool fish! I hope the fish you have in mind is different from this one, that way it will be easy to care for.

How would this fit work?

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Heniochus Black & White Butterflyfish

It says "easy" but in reality is it a viable butterfly choice?

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

I read that they are pretty easy to take care of, compared to Moorish Idols.

Been tweaking my stocking list. I took off a few fish for various reasons and added some. lol

Here's where I am at now

Kleins Butterfly
Half black angel
flame hawk- pair maybe?
Bi-color goatfish- maybe but would like
Yellow Bream-
Wrasses-
lubbock
McCosker
Vroliks
Carpenter
red Coris

And one of these two, leaning towards the peppermint

peppermint hogfish
Cuban Hogfish- gets kinda large but very cool

What do you think of the list now?

Looks good. But 5 wrasses? Wouldn't they fight or something?

The only one that isnt peaceful is supposed to be the red coris. They are all about 3-5" at maturity as well. Not sure if they will fight, just figured they would be ok. LOL

Anyone know if wrasses will fight each other? Like what if I got all males then there wouldnt be any females to get aggressive over. lol

Thanks!

Well 12 days has gone by and nothing. Still sitting on the 55g, guess no one is buying used tanks at christmas. :-(

I did just order 2 new aqueon 950 powerheads for this tank. I figured I';d try out another brand besides koralia. I am gonna take the 2 750's I had for this tank and put them in the 125g. I plan on using 4 powerheads in there with the new controller I am gonna get so I figured the 90g could get an upgraded pump.

Hope the aqueons are good, I've heard only good things about them.
