Use the serial number on the lights to figure out what it is. In terms of the coral, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to keep the soft coral. The LPS, the frogspawn or torch, you MAY be able to keep them depending on what you learn about that light fixture...I'd assume if able you'd need to keep them at the top of the tank.

Even the smallest lions shouldn't be in less than a 55 tank.

Now there is a unique pick. Always wanted one. Sometimes hard to get them to eat anything besides live food, but the same thing goes with mandarins.

Alright! Well since the lion is obviously out *looks at everyone still talking about lionfish*


How about this:

2 Ocellaris clowns
1 Firefish Goby Or Orange Stripe Prawn Goby
1 Royal Gramma

The two clowns and firefish is considered a fully stocked tank for a 20g so I don't believe that adding the royal gramma would be overkill. It would definitely help to have a skimmer though.

Nano Fish
I am partial to the firefish

No way to the angler fish lol, i would be terrified to clean the tank. The suggestion of the clowns and gramma sound god. I realized there was a tag on the lights ill attatch a photo. Any one know of a small eel that may work? I really want something unique.

True eels? No but look at a canary blenny. They are eel like in appearance and will fit in your tank.
