after my first failure i decided on easy fish and i love the way they look and interact with each other..... and as previously noted i tend to lean towards inexpensive. this will add movement to the tank and now i will save up for a more expensive fish or coral...
why do you ask??

for there tiny size ( and price ) they are very aggresive. i mean its your tank so do as you wish with it but me personally would have went with clowns if i wanted damsel fish. i dont want to make them sound like they shouldnt be in a tank but i personally wont keep them.

these ones appear to be doing well (although i am now fighting ICH for the first time in a year) so for now its cool if i find them to be an issue i will set up an other tank or trade them in at my LFS..... after i get them healthy.. started the garlic food yesterday and will be dropping SG tonight.... after a few days if no real change will go to the heat method i used on FW and see where i get... i hate the idea of using meds so i will use my arsenal of other tricks first LOL

yea i agree with you there. its best to do other methods and rely on meds as a last resort. i dont know if you know it, but dont ever treat the display. move the fish to a seperate tank first and then treat.
