well I have had saltwater tanks for about 3 years now and had fish all my life along wiht many other pets. I have generally stuck with the fish only tank but recently started to add a couple sps
corals. I have stuck mainly with damsels since they are much easier to care for and cheaper, plus only had one real problem damsel which has now been removed.
I currently have a 55gallon freshwater tank with convicts, green terrors, 2 loaches and 3 plecos; and one 35gallon tank of goldfish during winter, in pond during summer. My saltwater include a 25gallon and a 90gallon tank. The 25 gallon I am going to use once I convert a few mollies to saltwater and breed them in that, although that is a ways off since I havent started yet and right now has a nasty damsel in it. The 90gal. have some star polyps, mushrooms, jewel puffer, fire clownfish, scooter blennies, blue velvet damsel, sally lightfoot crabs, snails, and what i believe is a yellow damsel.
