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

I don't think all butterflies are hard to care for. I think some would certainly be easier to feed than your mandarin and scooter. Good luck!

Ya the tusks are very expensive, and it stinks because they are so cool! And I'm sorry about the groupers, but there is a fish called a blue hamlet that looks to me alot like a grouper, maybe you should check it out

if i was in the market for a butterfly, i would want to see it eat before i bought it. especially a copper banded.
i've kept multiple wrasses together before. i hear they don't do well together but the ones i kept never left each others side (these were different species).

I don't think butterflies like to have aggressive tank mates

Would a butterfly be really that hard to keep? I only know from what I hear here and research and it seems they dont' immediately eat. I've been down that road before with my scooter and my mandarin.
I had a couple before when I had a fowlr. They ate garlic supplemented flakes the next day. It was a pearl scale and a vagabond butterfly fish. I think those are a couple hardy species.

Yep, heard that about the copperbands, I wasnt gonna go full throttle on one like that, was just wondering if they all have the same eating issues. So one is added to my wish list.

Along with two wrasses.

I don't plan on ever adding corals to this tank and will be stocking it with minimal rock so there should be some room in there for a few fish.

I also don't wanna overstock as the 90 seems big, from my experiences with 125g's it's not as big as you'd think.

Would an eel be a compatible option for what I'm looking at so far?

Oh and I won't be adding any triggers just so you know. My buddy has one so I can alwasys go over there to see hers. lol
