Yeah, I was worried you would say that. I would be really worried about my inverts with him around. Would the flame cardinal be Ok for life?

I don't see a Flame Cardinal being comfortable in a reef setting. The light intensity would be a huge stress factor, I would think. Perhaps someone else has input on this, because I can't say for sure.

Honestly, I don't see the problem with a Flame Angel.

The problem with the angel is that the corals it seems to nip the most are the corals that I lime best, an I have read that 75% of them come with some sort of disease. So a cardinal wouldn't be comfortable under PCs? Than I guess I may go with an angel...An Idea just popped into my head as I was writing this-are there any small colorful fish I could keep by itself in this tank, preferably yellow or red? I'm a fan of lots of fish in a tank, bit what I think looks even better is a simple tank with just one or two fish and corals.

Look at any of the Baslets (pseudochromis). Many of them have amazing color. And if you are just talking about one fish, don't forget the Damsels.

I have a question about the damselfish-I know that they are often too aggressive for other fish, but could two damselfish be kept in the same tank-I was thinking a yellow damsel and a blue devil. Would this be acceptable, with probably some soft corals?

Probably not in a tank under 6 foot in length. I do think you could keep a pseudochromis with a Yellow Tail Damsel in the same tank. They would both hold their own well and not be overly aggressive to each other.

Ok, thats ok. Are there any basslets that you can recommend that are colorful, and aren't too expensive? I've seen some of them go for $900!

P.S. I don't like royal grammas at all-just something about them...

I apologize, i've been saying Basslets and I was thinking Dottybacks. I've been a little spacey this week, so you have to keep me in line.

Pseudochromis (Dottybacks)

Yeah, while I was researching them, all of my sources said they are peaceful, and should be kept with other peaceful fish-damsels don't strike as peaceful. So a dottyback and a damsel? I have heard they are very bad, and the damsels are smaller. To me, sounds like a blood bath!

On the subject of just one or two fish, how about a pair or group of 3 pajama cardinals? And then get a whole bunch of inverts? I just love a bunch of little critters skittering about
