Stocking list looks great. I don't think that you should have any problem. I would add them in this order:

1- skunk cleaner shrimp
2- firefish
3-midas blenny
4-banggai cardnial
5-algae blenny
6-flame hawkfish
7- false perculas
8- six line wrasse
9- coral beauty

Look at Softies, polyps mushrooms and zoas as easy to keep corals.

No he is last on my stocking list, so I am starting to look for a healthy specimen. I have heard that they are a fairly easy fish to keep, if you have enough live rock for this fish to graze on.

Hey Im going to skip out on the hawkfish and add 3 green chromis instead. also I'm going to add the blennies at the same time so they don't fight!

i would probably add a few more firefish, they are generaly schooling fish and should be kept with at least 4, also they will come out a lot more if you have more of them and i think it looks a lot cooler!

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

I have always heard that they the most the they can be kept as is a M/F pair. Do you have any personal experience with firefish?
