I had never heard of the term "rock dwelling fish", but I guess there is such a think eh. What are the general rules or tank "living" conditions you would generally need for those guys? As in a particular type of sand, or rock? etc.

For rock dwelling fish? Rock dwelling fish are just fish that most of the time will be around the rocks.

I have a new stocking list... I know it will stop soon.

2 dwarf angels (pair) I was thinking Flame, coral bueaty, or flame back angelfish
2 Ocellaris clowns (pair)
Maby 2 banggai cardinalfish
(I give this 1 abut 99% no and 1% yes) 3-5 of the glass cardinals (the ones above)

That looks like a bunch of fun...nice looking rocks..can't wait to see it after you add the inhabs. This is a 40 breeder right? For some reason I think breeder style tanks look way better than the tall skinny. Hoping to get a couple soon.

Oh ok, thanks for the clarification. I assumed thats what it meant, but had never heard the term. Now are they the type that dig themselves little homes within the sand, near the rocks? or no? I saw this really cool fish at our local Big Al's and there is a fish there, who lives within the inside of what looks like a rock. Most of his body stays inside that little tunnel and will only come out to feed. I will try to get a video of him when I go there next to pick up my tank(hopefully soon).

Thanks again.

Pics

Pasfur, stocking question I would like to focus around a trio of coral bueaty angelfish. I would like small fish to fit in around them I would prefer fish under 3" total.

I picked up 2 hermits and 2 nassarus snails. Pics and I got my moons working.
