    What fish next?

    Well the tank cycled for 2 months and it's been a little over a month since everything else has been re added into the tank. So I figure it's safe to get another fish. The question is which one..

    My current livestock is
    a false perc clown (mean little bastard)
    royal gramma
    purpe firefish

    about 10 nassarius snails
    10 astrea snails
    a xl cleaner shrimp.

    So what do you guys think I should add? The display is a 50gallon breeder(36L x 18w x h19 with a 20L refugium. The total water volume of the system is about 75g.

    I think I'd like an emerald crab.. but thats it so far.. Not sure if I should get a dwarf angel or whatever to be the center piece. ANY feed back is welcome

    If I could add any fish to my system right now it would be a Flame Angel.

    Either a Flame angel or bicolor angel would be my vote.

    We really enjoy the personality of our Flame Hawk. I would only recommend a Flame Angel or Bi-color if it came from another reefers tank and you know it doesn't nip at corals. Ours is great but we got it from someone that had it for a while. Midas Blennies are cool looking fish and have great character as well.

    Eric, You don't think the tank is to small for a fish that gets potentially 6 inches long?

    Algae(Lawnmower)Blennys dont have great colouration, but have a lot of character. Great fish IMO.

    I really enjoy watching the Coral Beauty angel in my tank. They don't get very big as they are a dwarf angel, like the flame angel. They are supposed to be the least likely to nip at coral as well. I have not witnessed mine behaving badly, i have quite a bit of sps in my tank, as well as a clam, several lps, and some zoos. The Coral Beauty is also not very expensive.

    I would get a wrasse. Either something like a Christmas or Melanarus(though they may eat your inverts) or a Fairy wrasse of some kind(there are tons of choices here). A Mccoskers wrasse would be a great choice as long as you have your tank covered.

    I ended up with a pair of pajama cardinals. I may get a fairy wrasse again sometime but my tank isn't covered so yeah.. I've already lost one to a jumping incident.

    to solve the jumping of fairy wrasses, place an eggcrate sheet on top of the tank..
