Are you saying that 4 groups of fish is fine, or 3?
If 4 is ok for a 55g tank, I need to reconsider the capenter wrasse. I think it is a beautiful fish and everything but, I don't want to have to pay $50 for that certain fish. I found tank-bred clowns (ocellaris) for $15. That sounds like a good price for me. Flame Angels (on the same site) where $36 (ouch, that's a $72 pair), and the Royal Gramma was $15 (same site).
I don't know if it is Ok to post the name of the site on the thread, so please post back if you know if it is ok or not. And if you can recommend sites, I will look into it.
I have my breath held at this point. My finaciual support seems to be shakey. My parents want me to set this up for highschool credit. They want to make sure I know exactly what I am doing. I estimate this project will cost no less than $300 (maybe more). I think 1 dead fish, and my finaciual support will probably crash. Even with the small income I make I won't have money for the SW tank and the South American Amazon (FW) tank I am setting up soon.
I think the longer it takes for me to get my friends tank (that I still
don't know for sure the size), the more nervious my parents are getting.
Oh well, I guess that is just a warning that it might all fall apart. I really don't think it will (I have always found a way to care for my FW fish when I was broke), but it might, so that is just a caution. I guess I can always add on slowly. I think with my determination (and alot of their cash) I can make this work out. Thanks for being here every step of the way! (just a note: I may not have access to internet through saturday)
