Well in that case the options are pretty much endless. I'll return later after researching...

But before I go, might I suggest the amphiprion ephippion?

Thanks so much, I probably wouldn't have ever known about these fish if not. I'm thinking a clown would be cool again, I'd probably do a black and white if I did.. The chromis' are really nice, I like the last one a lot, but dont they do best in Schools? I don't want to freak anything out.

And to sniper, yes I agree, coral tanks are one of my faves, but now that I'm bb I can do more bioload because the nutrients are either on the glass or in my filter sock.

The news just keeps getting better and better! It will get a Lot fuzzier once it heals completely. The corals you gave me are doing amazing also, I got to gluing them in today and they are doing great. The bigger one is getting red.. I dont really know why but it looks really nice with it.

You brought up an interesting point...bleaching on the inside of massive sps colonies. The inside of my birds nest is kinda doing it...should i be concerned...?

If its the inside no that's bound to happen from shading by the new growth.. this piece was the opposite so I opened it up to get more light to what was still alive

When I do saltwater I'm totally getting the fire clown... And the gold headed sleeper goby... And a school of orange lined cardinal fish.

I don't know about those chromis but according to live aquaria groups of 3 or more in odd numbers is best. I was just browsing and thought they were lovely.

Yeah, it's completely natural. The lfs has a big colony that has white under it.

Well, whenever you start the build, shoot me a pm or something so I can join in!

That's what I was told also :/ idk, I'm thinking either Midas blenny or b&w clown although I hate getting nipped, my last one made me bleed so I got rid of it lol, im such a wimp.
