Definate list
4xnemos
1xblenny
1xbasslet
1xdartfish
1xpuffer(horned)
1xclown tang
4xcleaner wrasse


and wat i would like in addition is

wish list
1xeel
1xlion fish
1xtrigger
1xdragonet

but i dont think they r compadable with each other or the ones i can definatly keep.
i know i couldnt have any type of shrimp if i have my wishlist but those fish r so damn cool...wish i had enough space for a sting ray
anyone seem this is a fair descision for the new setup?

well you cant have the large predator fish with the small fish. so you need to decide what you want more.

yeah it needs to either be freindly or predatorial. You will lose all your small fish if you put an eel or lion fish in there.

But, Andre, according to his post, he has two stocking list options unless you are talking about the dragonette instead.

Edit: Never you mind. There's a wishlist but no lionfish unfortunately in your tank.:) They do eat smaller fish when I had one before.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

one is a deffinite list and one is a dream list. I was thinking he meant he would like to get the others just a different day.

damn...even if i kept the eel well fed in a corner it would still go after those fish? they r pretty fast fish wouldnt think an eel is to fast...as for the lion fish/triggers yea i know they r preditory even if i put heaps of LR so the smaller fish could get around without being hassled is out of the question?
