Let's stock a (fake) LFS together!(and basic fish statistics)

Just for fun,let's do this! This could also be helpful to start up fishkeepers-they could see the basic statistics of a fish they wanted if it was listed(that's why it's so detailed)
It will be a saltwater/freshwater/brackish LFS-so suggest anything! We have unlimited cash
Please include your suggestion in this format-
1-Fish name(common and/or scientific)
2-Water type and tempature ex freshwater tropical(for salt,if reef safe please)
3-Aggresive, semi-aggresive, or community
4-Minimum tank size
5-advanced fishkeepers only?
For example-
1-Guppy,Pocelia Reticula
2-freshwater tropical
3-community
4-10 gallons
5-no
Thanks!

Thanks for replying!
So we have-
Bettas
Guppies
Kind of pitiful, don't you think? We won't make much money this way and then we won't have a LFS!
I'll add a saltwater fish next-
Ocellaris Clownfish( black and orange types)
Saltwater tropical
20+ gallons
Community
No

Sleeper Gold Head Goby (Valenciennea strigata)
Saltwater
Community
50 gallon
Reef compatible
Carnivore

Should not be kept with a member of its own species unless they are a mated pair. Also would benefit from the addition of a refugium.


I want one of these so badly!
