Planning Out my New Tank

Well I finally found a nice corner pent tank on craigslist after a bit of searching and disappointment upon going to purchase, but i was victorious.

I have been doing sw for awhile so I am asking more on what would you do with a new tank, time and a little coin.

Went from a 55g down to a 20g [moved...sigh] and now i am back to a 44g as previously mentioned. Current residents are just my two ocellaris clowns, which i think are just absolutely gorgeous. They will make the adventure into the tank once the tank is cycled and stable but alas i feel they shall be lonely.

What would your recommendations be as far as some new neighbors?? I am already considering a peppermint shrimp or two for some color when the tank is in night mode. and i am interested in adding a black ocellaris but i fear the long time pair might not appreciate that. Would adding the black in a pair aid in that?? as far as decor/rock the tank is pretty much set in that avenue.

buuut i am open to any suggestions.

A few people have added more than 2 ocellaris clowns to their tank and pistolpete introduced them 2 weeks apart. I think the main concern is that since the other two are already a pair, if the tank doesn't have enough room, they would be aggressive to him/her/it.

Yeah that is my fear these two have been paired and the last thing i want is for them to reject a black clown and make the tank a territory battle. I figured another clown would be hard to manage. Just like how they roll in currents haha

I got it at petsmart for him. $150 for the stand and $170 for tank, but I had a $30 discount so tank was $140.

Have you started working on the tank at all?

re sealed the seams and gave it a good washing, i think there was a turtle in it before...but looks good as new. i like a deep sand bottom so i am doing a 70-80 pound sand bed there is about 40 pounds of sand and 2 inches of water in the tank because i was afraid it would get knocked over the weekend. but it survived...lol

im gonna utilized the ability for dual light fixtures and do a day and moon light just waiting for all those components to show up. doing alot of waiting...
