That's an interesting story. My wife does things like that. Gotta love em'! We have a nano-28 reef with two clowns, a watchmany goby, and a sixline. Thing is packed with lps corals and a CuC. Anyhow, I come home to a bangaii cardinal swimming in there. I'm thinking it's a schooler and the bioload is way to much. He told me if I got rid of him, she wouldent let my get any more corals, ect. Here I am doing water changes every 3 days lol.

Alright Toby. Well I like the Valentini and the Fiji. Need to make up my mind. I pretty much feel the same about both. What would you choose? Since I'm worried about temperament a little. Again it will be the dwarf lion and toby puffer in the 60g w/ 10g sump and fug for a while! Also have a Rena xp3 and 60g rated protein skimmer in the sump.

I don't really know anything about the Fiji, but I would think the Valentini or Saddled puffer would do alright. Not sure about inverts with it but it's probably the same as the lion, in that respect. Mine pretty much floated around and kept to himself, while I had him.
Best of luck, whichever you choose.

PS.- the wife doesn't bring stuff home on a whim anymore. It was a nice gesture, but now she gets it! Toby G.

I like the Valentini, the wife likes the Fiji. I'll let you know how Fiji works ok lol.

Update** the lion fish just devoured some glass shrimp. Good to see he has an appetite!

Hey, does this lion not look like an antennata more than a radaita? Just curious. My buddy just mentioned it to me. Wonder if my lfs had the identification wrong. Looking at the circles on the pectoral fins.

What do you guys think about The lion, snowflake, and ?. I am debating between the toby and a dwarf angel. Flreefer said some good about the toby puffer (thanks toby, lol). But now I am thinking about the angel for fear the puffer will nip at the lions fins. Bad pic, but got my baby eel.
