As a newbie u see all the amazing creatures available for your aquarium.

Then u find out u can only keep a couple types of creatures per tank.

And u also find out the limitations are limitless :mad:

Bummer, isn't it?

Mine was mostly with fish. Coral Beauty? Nope, might eat corals. Flame Angel? Ditto. Longnose Hawk? No, might eat the shrimp ... and the list goes on. ;)

I guess you could look at it as though well...looks like I need another tank! This is one of the challenges of reefing! Pick and choose.

Yeah but just think Nikki; you could save time and money with a great big tank. Give the kids their swimming lessons in the tank and have them clean it at the same time! :lol:

I've always found that mixing lions and antelope in the same cage is not a very good idea. You need to be able to supply beef AND hay, and hope the beefeaters don't like their food too warm.

A reef tank is no different than the zoo. Consider it a lesson in ecology, a cool puzzle, and enjoy it.
