Yeah I plan to do a cove in the left corner and an island middle right for aggressive lps. I plan to have the cove covered with peaceful corals like shrooms and zoas and the island with Lps. I'll have 50 lbs so it's plenty to work with

Yeah me too. I hear there both really good. What do you have? The reef saver is supposed to be easy to aquascape and give a "continuous" look.

These look really cool! It makes them even cooler that they school!

Think theres some confusion here, dartfish are aggressive to other dartfish unless mated.

Thanks!

Yep! I'm getting it's cousin, the purple firefish. I like it better because it's more colorful. But that's a cool fish!!!

There are a couple of dartfish that school like the zebra or curious wormfish... But i dont think the second one schools, could be wrong on that though

Yeah, I'll run across that post eventually so if I remember I'll post that one. I was thinking of adding some schooling gobies if I upgraded the 20g and the cube.
