I was SOO thinkijng a purple fire fish. Marine betta would be too big and I have had a gramma, was nice but spent too much time hiding. lol

I want some fish that stay in mid water level and top water as I have 3 bottom dwellers already. And the citron who mostly perches.

So it looks good for a fire fish, any other ideas?

I appreciate them any and all suggestions.

Blackcap basslet, blue assessor, orchid dottyback, bicolor dottyback? The last two are a little aggressive. And the blue asseser is of course blue, not purple lol but it is a very dark blue.

I love my blue assessor, it swims around the tank too! Dark blue, very peaceful. I definitely second it, and it stays about 2.5" max.

My lfs had a yellow assessor but I thought they got too big for a 29...but at 2.5 inches I think it would be fine.

Actually making progress here. So far a purple firefish and maybe an assessor. Do they swim around or are theyhiders like the grammas'?

I think a purple firefish and the assessor will finish up the stocking on this cube. I may want to add a fire shrimp or another shrimp of some kind but I think thats it.

Kinda nice in a way to see the stocking at the end of the road. The tank will finally be complete. :

If anyone else has any ideas shoot them this way. But remember it is only 29g and I the delicate scooter and mandarin in it already so they would have to be peaceful fish. I know the firefish is but not sure about the assessor...

The cube is just about everything I want in a cube so believe it or not it will be complete. The joy to me is that I have other tanks that ARENT complete so I get to keep going so to say.

I never wanted corals in it either, it was just for my close up and personal pleasure.

SO purple fire fish for sure, I was thinking if there are any wrasses I can add as its the only closed top system I have. Or maybe a pygmy angle, or are they too big and aggressive for the tank?

Thanks!
