With the disappearance of my true perc I'm now trying to figure out what to replace him with. The original plan was to add a second clownfish once the purple tang was in place, but now the perc I had remaining is gone too. He really wasn't my favorite fish. He stayed at the top of the baffle all the time. Hardly ever swam in the water column and if there was a better than even chance that the next clowns would act that way I'd have no interest in keeping them.
My experience with a gramma is equally as tainted. I got a sick fish that never got over his shyness and died in QT
, likely of Urenoma.
So now what? Given my existing fish list what would you put into the tank?
My tank is reef so I'm not interested in risking an angel.
Some fish in my thoughts are orchid dotty back (or other dottyback), true percs (include sales pitch if you're suggesting these), gramma (again, need sales pitch).
Ideally I'd like something else that uses the water column. I'd also like colors not already in my aquarium (yellow, purple, black/maroon, lt blue, brown)
