-Pair of clowns
-coral beauty
-Going to try adding a fire angel with the coral beauty and if doesnt work take the fire back
-Purple firefish
-Some kind of smaller tang, either a bristletooth or a yellow eye kole
-I want to try a scooter blenny , but that may be later.
-I really want to try a copperband butterfly, the store i may work at has him eating mysis twice a day but that could change.
-and of course the CUC.

My copperbanded was wild caught. He started eating frozen in a few days. He started at first only picking at the rocks- but now he gets in the great food grab just like the tangs and gets his fair share. Very rarely do I see him picking at the rocks anymore.

Thats good news to hear. Copperbands are gorgeous fish i'd love to have one but i'd hate to see it die.

I now work at the local pet store and get 25% off all livestock and dry goods. This fish tank is catching second wind and hope to be done soon.

I'm a fan of the Danner Mag pumps. A Mag 7 would probably work out well for you as a return pump. Just make sure to look at the headloss before you buy a return pump.

Gonna look into the mag pumps. Maybe i can find links from that and see customer reviews and such. I have time to research before purchasing.

With a mag 7 and head loss i'd be getting between 500-550gph return. How does that sound.
