I ordered from reefs2go actually. lol

I only ordered from them because of the peppermint shrimp being bygo free and the shipping is only $20 since we are both in florida. I've found the prices to be better for fish online even with the shipping accounted for.

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

I've been thinking about what i want in this tank and I think I'd like another angel fish. Not sure which one yet, maybe the bi color one so I have some blue in the tank. I think I want to add a midas blenny as well, I miss the one I had he was a very cool fish. Other than the tang and the blenny I'd like to get a couple more smallish fish or even 1 or 2 larger ones. Just don't know what. I want something unusual and not real pricey. The tusk comes to mind but still uncertain if theres room in the tank for that much fish.

Also thinking of moving my b&w clowns from the cube to the 90g. They are not too aggressive and their size would fit in with the other fish for the most part. Any thoughts on that or should I move them to the 60g cube I'm building?

I should be getting my starfish and my urchin tomorrow or the next day, havent gotten a shipping email yet. And while I'm on urchins, how do I move it with all those spikes? And how do they ship it, can't be in a plastic bag or the spines would poke holes in it I'd think.

Enough questions for now, thanks for following. If you guys can post back what you think.

From my work I know they ship urchins on plastics bags. I've never seen any different.

Cool. Guess I'll see soon enough. Called reefs2go about my order that I placed SUNDAY. They aren't shipping it out til THURSDAY which I find unacceptable. Plus I live in Florida where they are located, it's only a couple hours away.

GRRR....

This will be my first urchin and my second starfish. Hopefully this star won't melt away like the last one did.

If you decide to go with the Bicolor make sure you have a healthy specimen that is eating. From what I have read, there are many poor quality specimens out there, so be extra careful selecting one. The Bicolor is an awesome fish, great idea Rutrag!

Regal angel fish are pretty! I want one... But on liveaquaria they are about 70 or something... It makes me think of flounder from Lil mermaid

Just looked up that angel, thats a heck of a needy fish! says it needs 125g tank with lots of rock and it is hard to get them to eat. :-( I have only maybe 120lb of rock in the tank.
