So I have remade my "want" stock list...But i am going to throw it to the masses to get your advice on them. I went off Live Aquaria of things that i would like to have.

Ones in Bold are ones that I am really wanting.

Elegance Coral
Hammer Coral
Torch Coral
Frogspawn
Mushroom Leather Coral
Maxima Clam
Brain Coral
Tooth Coral
Acropora
Feather Duster
Some sort of Anenome...

Skunk Cleaner Shrimp
Blood Fire Red Shrimp
Coral Banded Shrimp
Ocellaris Clownfish
Mandarine (when enough pods cultured)
Blue and Yellow Tang
Purple / Yellow Royal Gamma


I really like corals that move with the current.

And for some reason the shrimp I REALLY like, they look great under the lighting that I see at my LFS...colors really POP!!!

Let me know what you think...

i would steer clear of the elegance, unless you can find an australian specimen. they don't do too well in closed systems. the aussie ones seem to do better.

the fire shrimp are a lot less social than the skunk cleaners. whenever i kept them, i hardly ever seen them.

Coral list looks good, just make sure you have enough light for the acropora.


I hate to say it but unless you have a 6 foot tank I would just settle on the yellow tang. They need an extreme amount of swimming room. Believe it or not it's vital to their health and well being. tangs stress unusually easy unfortunately....

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

I figure a yellow tang would be ok in there, you have a good amount of back to front space and I'm guessing its a 4 foot tank or is it 5 feet?

there are other tangs like the kole that is also a good fit. They can be happy enough in a 75g and I loved the one I had before it passed.

To be honest, nems are quite over rated. This comes from someone who bought one right off and had to return it 2 months later after i couldnt deal with the stress of having it take over my whole tank adn the possibility that it could eat fish.

You want an established tank of at least several months, pristine, stable water and excellent lighting.

I have to be hobest though, I am considering a mini maxi anemone for my new tank. Still on the fence about it though. They are tiny and very colorful and they have shrimp that hang out in them.
