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

Ouch. The only fish I have had die on me totally wasn't my fault (bicolor blenny died during drip acclimation with a hawkfish, so water conditions didn't have anything to do with it.)

This place is the reason I'm not getting a ton of fish and the reason I have some of them. LOL.

I would have gotten...

A yellow tang
An ORA spotted mandarin (off of Aquacon, I may add)
A sun coral
A seahorse (I don't know what I was thinking)

And probably a bunch of other things. Thanks, I guess!

Glad you are informed enough now to not have just gone off and gotten difficult animals. Alot of people don't have that luxury and the poor things suffer because of it.

Seahorses are good in a species only tank though, the tang just needs a big tank and the sun coral just needs a lot of attention. All things you may one day be up to the challenge to try.

Was considering using the 20 gallon I want to get from my science teacher for a seahorse. I think they are too expensive though. Im thinking FW community. or snowflake eel. I read they can be kept in 20s. is that correct or wrong (i assume wrong)

cant handle the sun coral. way too much work, IMO. plus I am horrible at target feeding. I have yet to get one brine shrimp to my green ricordia.

Not sure about the eel, for sure not my specialty. lol

FW community is nice and easy, I have one still, even though I just listed it on CL LOL. I;d rather have the money for a saltwater tank and supplies.

You can get seahorses i think for like $150 a pair, kinda pricey but some people are into them. Me, I personally think they look creepy. LOL

I like them. Think the creepiness of them is what makes them cool. It's just the way the move so slow. And the shape.
