I want to build a saltwater tank, but I need to save up AND do my proper research first. I currently have a 20g freshwater, and have been maintaining it nicely for a bit now, but we really are into the more brightly colored and agressive fish. Things we are looking at are:
Clown/Humu Picasso Triggerfish
Puffer of some sort
All are carnivores and agressive, and none can fit in the others' mouth, and they match up on the combatablility chart, so we are thinking those are a good mix. One of each. For cleaners I am looking at the following:
Electric Blue Hermit Crab
Now, those ones I know some of them (or all) will be targets for the puffer and the eel, but they are cheap enough that I don't mind having to replace them if they get chomped up. Obviously though, I am not an expert and could be overlooking some much better cleaners for an agressive tank.
We aren't going to do any corals. I was thinking a 75G tank with sand and live rock.
Suggestions are lovely. Also, I want to be sure that I get the proper filters and things, so suggestions on the hardware would be appreciated as well. Water changes are no biggie, I don't mind a little work. I really enjoy my tank now and see them as pets, not decoration.
Thanks in advance. Any other suggestions on compatible fish would be great too - we are open to other options.
