Also how deep would I need?
Yep. Just add the sand to the tank. It won't hurt the cycle or anything. I don't know how deep the sandbed should be. You're gonna have to look that up I guess. Normally I would look things like that up to help out but I was up til 2am setting up a Christmas tree to surprise the kids when they woke up... I'm super sleepy.

I think my final stock list I Want is:

Zebra lionfish
Papuan puffer
Snowflake eel
Orange banded stingfish
And a hawkfish

Any tips or suggestions? Anybody know anything about owning the orange banded stingfish? I can't find much so I might drop him off my list.

so are lions, fox faces, and zoanthids lol just handle with care and youll be fine. personally if i had a tank suitable for a scorpion then it would be at the top of the list. you can get them in a huge variety of colors.

I've done some reading on them but I'm not to knowledgeable in this department. I do believe their sting packs a punch but nothing life threatening. When I say suitable tank I just mean a tank that doesnt have any small reef fish like gobies since they could become a snack lol
