you could get some eagle eyes and radioactive dragon eyes. they look nice, are dirt cheap, and grow pretty well. if they get eaten, it's no big deal.

Dragon eyes are so rare in Canada its not even funny, the bright colour zoas are all hard to find actually most of the ones you get come into LFS as 1 or maybe 2 poplys then local reefers grow them out to sell....sometimes.

we have one new store in town thats starting to bring in "ultra" colour zoas and acans so watch for them.

The devils hand and the xenia will quickly get out of hand in a 55g. Especially the xenia.

Be careful of what you hope for. You'll see.

Good luck.

It's something you gotta experience for your self. I used to sell maybe 3 frags every week or two. That cutting in addition to the extreme growth and density made my tank crash. Lost everything in it but the fish. Coral and mostly all inverts died.

Situate it high on the rocks so it doesn't reach to the light and overtake everything in its path trying to reach up to the light.

Best of luck!
