Compiling a stock list, with a lil help from a friend even though I'm not even close to putting water in the tank lol. Wanna make sure everything will be kosher between the fish I choose, so the down town gives me an opportunity to fully research... And dang is it hard to pick fish! Sad news is the Porcupine Puffer, trigger, lionfish & harlequin tusk have all been removed from the list... SADFACE!

Picking a fish stock is the hardest thing to do imo...corals I can pack in as many as I want but finding that perfect balance of fish is very difficult. I'm 9 months in and haven't finished stocking my 46 gallon yet lol goodluck though and can't wait to see what you finally decide on

It is hard :/ all the ones I really like love to murder inverts. I'm not willing to not have inverts lol, so I have to vote against the fish. Sucks!!!

Yeah, picking out fish that will work in a particular size tank, that will get along without murdering each other, have a good range of colors and activity levels (and won't jump out in my case cuz I'm topless) is a definite challenge. Takes a lot of research. And I think everyone has had to give up on a fish they love cuz it won't work in their tank.

i actually do love how puffers swim, you can see it takes all their effort to turn and such.

I fell in love with one at the lfs. She was 7 and the coolest fish ever! She kept rubbing her face across the glass following us back and forth lol, here is a picture of her I thought about seahorses but they say they are difficult to keep and I think a 150g with just seahorses might lack the "personality" I'm aiming for
