I've seen chromis come from a supplier which where all problemmatic. Just that once, but I agreee, they are very hardy generally. Heck, before I knwe better, I used 2 to cycle my 20g QT tank. Those two, plus another are still in my main 18 months later. Can do clowns also.

Oh yes, I'm a huge fan of the midas blenny. See my profile for my 75g community.

Thanks austinsdad. Midas blenny does look good. Now I'm starting to question my other choices. Are the benggai cardinals truly nocturnal? I just read in one description of them that they tend to hide in caves during the day. I'm a totally day-person myself! Will this fish only be around when I'm in bed?

Never had cardinals. Just that they seem to just sit there, suspended in the water. I prefer swimmers.

My PJ cardinals are also largely nocturnal, but don't tell them that. They seem to forget and they hang out in the tank during evening hours. I think they've shifted their schedule because of feeding time being in the evening. They're not out much early in the day, but then in my tank nobody is. When I first got them I hated that hover effect, but now I really like it. It helps that they're getting huge too, lol. There's a picture of my "pair" in my gallery.

Phyl, you've got some beautiful pictures there! Love the one of the cardinals! How big are they now, and how big did they start out? Everyone says cardinals are best in pairs. Is is possible for a pajama and a bangaii to get along? I don't think I'll have room for a pair of each kind, and I really can't decide!
