Picasso Tiggerfish are lovely, but no recommended for beg.; can be aggressive, not suitable with smaller fish and on and on. You can get them later on! (It's recommended to get only one per tank.) Regal Tangs (Dora form Nemo) are also cute but can be aggressive. Yellow Tangs are fine and not aggressive.

I know that I didn't really help, but still, these are the fish that I would have loved to get if only I had a reef/fish only tank that's at least 3 times bigger than my 15g freshwater!

Before making any recommendations I would like to know what`s your plans for this tank? Reef? FOWLR? Fish only?

Eventually I want to be a reef tank. I'd also like to get an eel down the line. Is it possible to have an eel in a reef tank if you keep it well fed.

I have seen it done however they are considered messy eaters and can eat up all your shrimp if you plan to keep any. They are usually best kept in their own tank. That tank has to be large enough to support them happily too.

So yesterday I went and got my first fish. I got two baby clown fish and so far they're doing great. They swim around a lot but never travel too far from one part of the aquarium. Is this them just claiming a home? Also I noticed this morning that one of my snails that is moving down the glass has little white dots sticking to the glass in a trail behind him. They almost look like eggs.

I've been thinking as to what to get for my second fish as my quarantine tank finished cycling yesterday and I'm doing a PWC on it today. I was thinking about a yellow tang as I've heard that they're fairly easy to keep but I've heard multiple things as to how much room they need. Would a 75G be enough room for it? Would my 10G quarantine tank be big enough for it?

Also I was thinking of getting a Longspine Urchin but a few sources of read say that they're not reef safe but then many that I read say they're reef safe. Anyone have any comments on this?
