AND, Mr. Lfs employee recommended a foxface, which I hadn't even considered. I think it would be great - any opinions?

A foxface lo would probably be ok...but for a 'with caution' fish I wouldn't do it similar to the dwarf angels.
For the anthias, it would depend on which one. Some require huge tanks, others would do in a 55.

Didn't know the foxface was risky, but for now there's not going to be much coral so I'll leave it as a possibility.

They have dispar anthias for $40 - min tank size listed as a 70g on LA

The 70-75 recommendations...just break it down. What is a 75 standard tank? A slightly wider 55. That'd be a fine addition IMO.

I would skip it. 12hrs driving with the fish in bag.

They actually all made it, except the canary blenny who appeared to have developed swim bladder disease. It's actually turned out to be 21 hours in the bag! Speaks to the good lfs practices at this place

Wanted to showoff this baby sailfin I'm holding for a friend. 2.5 inches, seems like a model citizen, at least in my sparsely stocked 55.





Lol when I first received him I thought that raised line was HLLE (phew!)

Nice. I wish I had a large enough tank for one of those guys. Beautiful. Hope your friend enjoys him.

Man I wish they stayed this small :p

He has I think a 220, but even with that much space they get way over a foot long, so I can't imagine that would suffice for such a fish's entire "natural" life.

I want to say 180 is a min requirement, but don't hold me to it. How you have the rocks set up can play a lot into it too.
