What other fish do you have in there? I have a fish suggestion but they do have a high bio load and can be a little nippy at night while other fish sleep. Google bird beak burrfish. It's like a porc puffer but they only get a foot long.

Yeah... if there is anyone I wouldn't question a fish in her tank it'd be carey lol. I wouldn't be surprised if she had a waterbed full of saltwater incase of a dire need for a pwc in the middle of the night.

I have:
flame hawk
Yellow Coris Wrasse
Red Coris Wrasse
Yellow Bream
Big Eye Squirrel fish
six line wrasse

Also have a red knobby starfish and a purple urchin

Gonna go google that fish, but I'm thinking a foot long fish might be a tad much LOL

The star may be lunch too lol. But it's 12 inch max so figure about 10 inches in a tank . They have one at my Lfs with the prettiest eyes and he will sit at the bottom of the tank and follow you with his eyeballs lol.

Just looked him up! Such a cute little fellow. My lfs gets ones like that and they follow you like little puppies around the tank. Not sure I'm ready for a puffer though. And don't they need large tanks? I'm not too terribly concerned about bioload, I run a pretty tight ship here so water is usually good.

Also, aren't they aggressive? And would a puffer eat my smaller fish?

My porc is in with a barely two inch maroon clown and he pays him no mind. The bird beak burrfish is nocturnal so it spends all day laying on the bottom just watching things with his huge eyes and during the night I have read that they can be nippers. puffers once they get some size tend to be lazy fish. I'll check my book when I get home but I think I remember they are considered semi aggressive .

What about a Goatfish or Hogfish? I think you were originally planning on the Goatfish, they are pretty cool.

Yeah, I was actually thinking about the goatfish again. Nice memory.

I know both are in stock at LA, my LFS actually has a spanish hog but I think those are the really big ones. lol

I'm gonna go browse LA, that should bolster my spirits.

LA is definitely a good spirit booster! Can't wait till I can go on LA to look for more fish for the 125g. I definitely undersestimated the amount of FW needed to get hypo conditions. I already went through about 40g! I am excited about the LFS though, they have some super nice corals and frags.

Think about your 60g build, that will help boost your spirit too!
