don't go by those "cleaner pack" things. those are just for marketing purposes. they lie so you have to buy more stuff...and then when they die from starvation, they tell you to buy more!

I've never seen my Midas pick on anybody. Doesn't even hang out in the same area as my goby. I thought it was the canary blenny that would bite.

Yeah, the last cleaner pack I bought for my 55g I got the 25g pack for and still had way way too many snails. I thought I'd be smart this time and just get what I liked. lol

Thanks for the input guys, unfortunately I ordered already. :-( I'll be on the look out for dying snails though. I don't want anything to go hungry in my tanks.

I've been looking at the golden midas blenny, has bright big blue eyes.

Maybe I'll revisit it after I get my first shipment of fish.

i'd personally stick with the 12 lamp you can hosue whatever corals you want, save electricity and you can play with the colors more to give it the look you want.

there is also been debates around thta T5s put out higher PAR ratings, but at the same time who knows how true that is as
