yes i do. a big tank and very few tank mates. they undulate trigger is the most aggressive of the triggers. i've seen them do some gruesome things to much larger fish.

This is a very easy fish to obtain but again can not have many tank mates, but I love the look of emperor angels

Google Image Result for http://www.oceanwideimages.com/images/7949/large/24M1000-15-emperor-angelfish.jpg

so many different looks to them but are all strikingly nice

Well I would have to say that as much as I do love Queen angelfish (Holacanthus ciliaris) and Golden angelfish (Centropyge arauntias), I always come back to Giant Pacific octopus (enterocotpus dofleini).

I know these are very common(any Walmart will usually carry them) but I am partial to Betta splendens(sp?). They are the friendliest little guys!!

Marine Betta all the way. They seem to have fallen out of popularity in the past 5 years but they are gorgeous fish.
