2 Ocellaris Clownfish
2 Banggai Cardinalfish ( I think that's the name)
White with black stripes

def. no moorish idol and maybe no copperband, i love that fish but not easy to keep same as the manderin goby.

what size tank?

klgj0102 10-05-2012 09:18 PM

80 gallon.
That sucks about the Moorish Idol cause its my wife's favorite.

I agree with Onefish. But, Copperband can be had, just make sure that it is eating at the LFS, if you do not presonally see it eat, do not buy it. Next, No Regal Angel either, your tank is to small for that fish.

yea, unfortunately they are an attractive fish but almost impossible to keep alive, at the very least not talking long term.

you will have plenty grazing rock for a mandarin but add it after your tanks a good few months old. the copperband is tricky but can be done, i find the yellow long nose butterfly fish a better option. is this planned to be a reef?

What is wrong with the Idol? Hard to keep alive or bad for the other stuff? Is there anything similar to it that would work?

Yes just a few things like frogspawn and kinda moving things like that.
