Hmm why not both? the more diverse the better in my opinion. Here is a link, if I haven't linked it already that explains the different macros and their benefits

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

Very nice fish! is that a purple fire fish? Looks different from the regular ones.

Good deal that they are eating, I always worry abut that myself.

Beautiful fish! Nice choices! I have always liked Firefish!

Can a anemone really wipe out your tank, I let the Lfs talk me into one, when I bought my clowns they were hosted too it and I didn't want to separate them, now I'm reading bad stuff on here about them in young tanks my seems to be doing well, but I'm thinking about taking it back I don't want it to wipe out my tank! Any thoughts?

They won't wipe anything out unless it starts to disintegrate and die off, causing a spike. The only thing you have to watch out for is when it settles next to other corals as most nems sting and might harm/kill their neighbors.

Being in a young tank increase the mortality rate though as it's probably not fully established yet.

They need some really good lighting! I had a purple tip and it died, thank God I caught it in time. The ammonia already started spiking. They are beautiful creatures, just watch them.

Nems also have a habit of getting stuck in filters and powerheads so make sure everything is covered.

If the nem is doing well in your tank and you like it I see no reason to return him. UNLESS you can't take the stress of worrying about it like me. LOL

He found a spot and has not moved since, kind of hard to keep an eye on and feed it's on the side of a rock towards the back but he eats well, and my clowns love him, I hate to take him away from them!
