In all honesty, I would be picking up some books and researching for some time before making another purchase. "The Reef Aquarium" volumes by Delbeek and Sprung or "Conscientious Marine Aquarist" by Fenner, or ?? I'm sure others can chime in on good beginner books.

Um...if the advice wasn't taken here, put whatever you want in the tank....just don't complain when the ich in your tank kills it or even if it shouldn't be in that sized tank.
At this point, do whatever you want, just don't post about it.

The suggestion was to slow down and read up on keeping a saltwater aquarium. Not sure how you were taking his advice by just asking again what fish to put in it.

Roka's point is that you have a tiny tank that most likely has ich living in it - assuming that's what was on your gramma. You need to deal with that before adding any fish or you'll just be posting about ich again. And regarding fish... go to LiveAquaria.com and look at their "nano fish" section. With your size of a tank you only have a handful of fish that are appropriate for it. It's not too much of a research project.
