Check out purple fire fish if you don't mind spending a little more. Wicked awesome. Also check into a wrasse. Very active.

The purple firefish is pretty awesome. I think I'd rather add that guy to my stock. Would just one or two be better?

Remember you will only be able to have a total of about 5-6 fish (Assuming each one's grown size is 3" and are active swimmers). So choose wisely. But yeah if you want a firefish I would recommend it being the 1st one into the tank. They can by shy and skittish at first. And after that try adding about 1 fish a week as long as all the water parameters stay stable

Congrats! Make sure to not buy your first fish until your tank is FULLY cycled.

A lot of people when they start a tank. They start a build thread, you can do that and upload pics and people can give you advice as you go along.

Good luck!

Ok thanks a lot I think I have a good idea of the fish I want in my tank. Once everything is in place I'll start a build thread!
