I have three hawkfish, one flame in the 90g, and a falco and arc eye in the 180g. I think I want a swimmy type fish in the 60g, all the others are pretty much perchers. The mandarin eats frozen and pellets but I am sure he eats what pods he finds here and there since he hunts everyday all day. lol I havent had much luck with dottybacks, the last one I had was nasty, killed one fish and almost killed a second one. :-(
It seems I have or have had so many different fish there arent many I havent kept yet. Another midas blenny would be nice but I know they jump and I wont be putting a top on this rimless.

Well if you want swimmers, the indigo was one to hover in his crevice for the most part. Maybe a dwarf angel?

I thought about a pygmy angel actually, but I am hoping to have the rest of my corals in that tank. Dont the angels nip?

I've never had one that caused any major issues, but I suppose there's some who have. I've also had a yellow mimic tang that decided it liked to eat $1500.00 chalices.....ya never know.

Glad it's getting better Carey!

I vote for the pygmy! I have one, and it hasn't nipped anything yet. I've heard that they're good as long as there well fed, but YMMV...

Its funny because I saw this earlier and did not have time to reply, but I was going to suggest either a cherub or Flameback Angel. Cool little fish.

If keeping a pygmy angel from eating coral is as simple as keeping it fed I think i may have that covered. lol SInce the mandarin is going in this tank I will be feeding multiple times daily. How about a lemonpeel? I LOVE the bright yellow and blue eye thing, I had one for a few days a few years ago but she didnt make it. One of the few fish that came from liveaquaria that died before its time.
I was also thinking of a firefish, or should I maybe put the firefish into the 180g as it has lids? The firefish that I did have never jumped or made any indication that they wanted to jump. lol
I'm trying to get excited again at the prospect of stocking, to be honest I havent had much fish "desire" lately which I chalk up to losing so many fish in such a short time frame, more so because I really really wanted them to make it. Since stocking is one of the best parts of keeping a tank I figure I'll concentrate on that for now and see if it doesnt get me jazzed up.
I'm really thinking the angel will be a good choice. Great suggestions guys, thanks. Now, what else to add? The fish I have for the 60g will be mainly small, except for the eventual growing of the perc clowns so I know I have a ton of room to go. Any ideas on any out of the ordinary fish? I love to have different fish that you dont see in tanks everyday. lol
