thanks for that

I only have a 50 gallon so bye bye blue tang...maybe I'll hold off on the Royal Starfish....i want a reef safe one though so I'll have to find a new one or try to make my tank perfect, then add him. SHould i add something else for a cuc then since my starfish is gone...like an exta lawnmower? How do red bali stars do?

Also looking at more coral I really like the Miami Orchid Staghorn. I don't know how prices compare but Saltwater Reef Aquariums: Live Coral for Saltwater Coral Reef Aquariums seems to be a good place, they also aquaculture a lot of their corals (which I love, save our natural reefs)

You can get a serpent starfish. Great starfish and it's good for a new tank as well. They have them in several colors too.

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

LOL. I thought so at first too, but they are kinda neat. You can feed them small pieces of food by hand...

How are tuxedo urchins? Can I touch those...I accidentally stepped on a urchin in Cayman so I'm scared of them, but the tux one looks neat?

I don't think you can touch any urchin, they all have those spike things. I have a purple one, he mosies about the tank with empty shells stuck to himself. LOL

Clams need a lot of light. I had a maxima and he fell off the rock he was placed at and his foot got yanked and he died. :-( Definitely not for the first timer. Not even sure i will try again....
