I have a psuedo-reef, basically a FOWLR
but with snails, crabs, and starfish. The only thing I really have reef-like is coraline and feather dusters.
Tank is a 110 gallon w live rock and a dsb
These are the current tank creatures:
36 turbo snails
12 blue leg hermits
3 unknown crabs
10 scarlet reef hermits
4 emerald crabs
6 nerite snails
6 cerith snails
2 star snails
48 nassarius snails
1 lettuce nudibranch
1 serpent star
1 harlequin serpent star
~10 feather dusters
I don't really plan on getting any coral unless I am forced to get reef-safe fish (I'd rather have cool fish than coral).
So the two fish I really want are a humu picasso trigger and a porcupine puffer. However, I highly doubt this is possible, as I figure both of these fish will eat the crabs, snails, starfish and feather dusters.
So what I am looking for are unique, generally large fish (fit for a 100 gallon), and most of the reef-safe fish are quite small. Does anyone have any suggestions? I know some web-sites list which fish are reef-safe, but I don't really have a reef, I just want fish that wont eat my cleanup crew.
I'm looking at the following but I feel like I could use a couple more suggestions (note that I won't necess put all of these in the tank; it is just what I am considering):
Powder blue tang
Yellow-stripe maroon clownfish & bubble anemone
Any other suggestions? A long time ago someone mentioned I should get a H(?) tusk fish, but I read that they would eat the inverts.
