You could do like a blackcap basslett or a purple or helfrichi firefish. The helfrichi is $$$ though as I have one in my IM Nuvo 20. Or you could do a cool pair of clowns like snowflakes or picassos

I've considered all those things. While they're good options.. I was thinking something more unique like a possum wrasse

Just a little update:

Found my tailspot blenny carpet surfing when I went to feed him one morning 😭 RIP little buddy.

But since then I got 2 baby clowns and a few new corals

Not sure why the pictures double posted. I also plan on getting a Smith's blenny and maybe a Randall's goby to round out my stocking

Are you talking about the button polyps as the unknown coral? I have some as well.

No it is directly infront of the orange sponge. It blends in nicely with it actually. A deeper hue

Picked up a nice plate coral for a hefty discount because it had barnacles on it. I don't mind them and I love discounts

Nice plate. I had one at one point with the purple rim. Really cool coral. Just wait, if it doesn't like where it is in the sandbed it will inflate itself and move.

Thanks! I hope it likes where it is! Unfortunately where we place corals and nems never seems to be where they end up. 😆
