Yepper. The percula ones can be more aggressive than the oscellaris so keep that in mind. Just stuff I've read, I happen to love clowns, I had two pairs of oscellaris at one time. I just keep nemos now.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Nope the cool ones are pricey it stinks, they are so small and all lol.

Sexy shrimp arent that expensive and neither are peppermint shrimp. You should check locally and see whats around you.

Ya I looked at petco.com and those two were the cheapest besides camel shrimp so I'll probably get some of those

How many do you suggest I get?

When youre ready you could probably keep 3 or more sexy's ( I hear they like to be in 3's) and if they arent too big I'd get like 2 peppermints. They are MUCH much larger than the sexys so I don't know if you can mix them...maybe someone else can chime in?

Alot is up to you, what do you like? You could maybe sve up and get a cleaner or fire shrimp they are ususally like $15-$25 though. But a nice cleaner would look cool in there too. LOL

I'm so bad, I there are so many options I couldnt decide either hehe

Lol I think by the time I am ready to start I'll have enough money I think to be able to buy anything but I think I'll buy three sexy shrimp instead of an expensive one because in case it dies then I won't have just lost so much money ya know. So ya I'll go with peppermint or sexy shrimp plus I like things in a larger quantity makes the tank look livelier

Also I saw on another thread that you said SW doesn't need an air stone? Is that true for me to or is that because the person had live rock?
