You can always take a book with you. Most all the stores I go to actually have a book you can use to look up fish this is one I keep in my car Amazon.com: A PocketExpert Guide to Marine Fishes: 500+ Essential-To-Know Aquarium Species (9781890087388): Scott W. Michael: Books . it is the same book that the LFS have a store copy of.

This is a great idea! That way you can find out about the fish you want from an unbiased opinion.

Another option that I use is my iPhone. It really comes on handy. Speaking of electronics, if you don't have a smartphone and don't have a book, you could always look for an electronic store in your area like Verizon or AT&T, LOL.

I use the application on my iPad. There are a few coral applications for iPad that make the choice in the LFS safer.

I agree. I think a Purple Firefish or even a normal Firefish would look great!

I don't think there is one that would work Ina 20. When you upgrade how big will it be?

I love this thread! please keep all the info coming.. I do not have a sw tank, but eventually, it will happen. I feel like I've lived through Zach's progression, but why no photos???

I would have loved to seen this process from the beginning.

My only advice, is be careful. No one enjoys living in crowded spaces.

Yes that is cool! But not what OP is lookin for hahah
Honestly, you wont find the butterfly/angel body type fish for a 20. Skip it and move on to really cool nano fish. A centerpiece isnt necessary, and i actually like a tank better then there are more smaller fish. JMO

Bad and good news,
Bad news I lost 2 teeth today playing frisbee.
But the more important good news my parents are buying me the t5 lighting as a get well gift. Pain bad cosmetics and not being able to eat are totally worth it.

That is bad and good news. lol. Least you'll get your lights.

I agree with the above, a bunch of nano fish can be as cool as a couple regular size fish. I have I think 10 fish in my 20g and it's not the least bit crowded in there yet.
