For a second I thought you were spamming my thread! I was seriously moving the mouse in the direction of the caution icon to have your membership revoked! LOL Granted, I was surprised, because you've become a welcome addition to the threads for the last few days, but sometimes you never know about a newby to a forum. Your scared me for a minute there.

For the record folks, there are a few Triggers that are reef "safe". But none of them would even begin to work well in a tank as small as 90 gallons.

The Purple Tang is one of the easiest to keep of all Tangs, but also one of the most aggressive after establishing a territory. If you want this fish, add it last.

The Achillies Tang is a very difficult to keep selection that is best left in the hands of extremely accomplished aquarists.

THe Desjardini Sailfin is also a Zebrasoma species of Tang, like the Purple Tang. You need to pick only 1 of these 2 fish.

The Chromis should fit nicely.

Royal Gramma will mix well and are sturdy fish. You will want to quarantine this fish, however, as they are very prone to ich.

The Rabbitfish would be best left for a larger aquarium, as they need a lot more swimming space than you have to offer.

Percula or Ocellaris Clownfish would be fine. A Trigger would not be a good idea for this size aquarium.

Now, I have a few words to elaborate on the concept of keeping a Mandarine Goby. Granted, the length of time an aquarium is set up does not have a direct correlation to the stability of the environment. However, the advice for having a seasoned aquarium is more appropriate with a Mandarin because of its very unique dietary requirements. Rather than wait a year, I would advice that you have a refugium, and wait until a thriving supply of copepods and amphipods are visibly apparent within your aquarium. Additionally, do not keep any other species of fish which require this special diet. A 90 gallon is pushing the limits of capability of supporting a single Mandarin.
Thanks a lot! You answered exactly what I needed answered! I'm upset about the sailfin/purple tang but what are ya gonna do. As for the achillies, I feel I could handle it but I think I'll hold off. So with a Hippo and (let's say I go with the purple, Is there another tang I could do? Or (and I know I have to worry about corals with the but...) a butterfly I could put it. I have a heniochus already. I just want to have a nice community tank with tons of color. That's why I have no desire for a Lamarks Angel (even though they're ref safe). There's nothing to them!

And SuperFishFan...

I just looked up a Gem Tang (never heard of it b4) and they're real neat looking! Not sure if you j/k ut a PAIR of triggers? Really? I think that would severly limit my mixing of fish. Not to mention, I ma be able to get fish at cost...but seriously...Just between those 3 fish I'm looking at oh I don't know, around $500-$1000! lol. I'll just gun for my Royal Gramma right now.

I would be very cautious about having more than 2 Tangs in a 90 gallon tank. Honestly, i'm not a supporter of you putting a Hippo Tang into this tank, because I just don't believe you are giving that fish enough space to thrive. In the wild, these guys obtain 75% of their adult size within the first year of their life, if that explains more about my view on this. I think you would be better off picking a Tang from the Ctenochaetus genus, such as a Chevron or Tomini Tang.

There are some Butterflyfish that would be compatable in a FOWLR environment. The Pearscale and Vegabond are possible to keep alive, and they don't get overly large. If this is an actual reef, then your only "safe" option is a Copperband.

Fair enough Pasfur. I'm actually hoping to upgrade to something like a 125 or more as soon as I can. But again...money is ALWAYS an issue. Especially since I've been unemployed since November. But I refuse to give up one of the few things that make me happy. I'll sooner live off of Cup-O-Noodles (and I have) than give up my fish. Any other suggestions on fish would be greatly appreciated!
