I have been doing a bit of research on what species I think I might like to add, but have bene getting some mixed reviews on if they're easy to take care of / what they'll eat etc. I like getting peoples input who've had experience with them.
I quite like the Auriga Butterfly. I've read its easy to care for and would be comfortable in a 55 gallon. If so, are these guys safe to keep with a large skunk cleaner shrimp or peppermints? I've heard they may eat ornimental shrimp.
Same goes with the valentini puffer/ saddle toby & blue dot puffer. My boyfriend loves em but again ive read they'll eat ornimental shrimp / crabs etc.
also had ( probably will be gone by the time I want to get another fish) a wrasse that wasnt labeled as this:
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Reef Aquariums: Red Head Solon Fairy Wrasse
but looks exactly identical. Any input on these would be great, too!
I thought about replacing my yellow tang ( especially with plans to upgrade possibly next year or so) but I havent been impressed with the ones at the LFS
.. may have to go driving. we'll see..
Ive pretty nuch steered clear of a mandarin.. I dont think my 55 gal
with 60# of live rock and no refugium would keep it alive for long unfortunatly. I'll just have to stick with looking at pictures!!
thanks as always
