Most people wont notice the difference between a true and a false, but getting a false perc(ocellaris) will allow you to get black ice or a b&w. Getting an amphiporon (probably spelled incorrectly) you can get your snowflake though. It would go best for you of the were botj juveniles when you put them in the tank.

Snowflakes are actually ocellaris believe it or not. At least mine was. There might be percula snowflakes.

Black saddleback clownfish

Melanurus Fairy Wrasse

Any and all suggestions welcome. Tnx
I dunno why no one commented...but you can't have that tang in a 90gal. It needs a 180gal, I think?

Blue Hippo Tangs
Paracanthurus hepatus

Recommended Tank size: Requires a 20 gallon or larger aquarium with a number of hiding places and plenty of room to swim.To keep multiple specimens, introduce the entire lot at once into the marine system.


What I got from website. If it's wrong, please let me know. I know they r trying to sell a fish... (buyer beware)

Check Liveaquaria - they're generally the "standard". It recommends a 180gal for them since they get like a foot long and need tons of swimming space.

Thank you for that website.... Wow, learned a lot! Any advice for hermit crabs and snails, other then make sure the salinity and acclimate them correctly? Do I need to throw in extra shells for the crabs?

I have changed the fish... Lol... After reading the articles in the website, I'm just going to stick to the recommended starter fish. Add some beginner coral and add a cleaning package.
