    So I successfully transferred over my livestock into the new tank but I've got to work on the aquascaping. My girlfriend has my camera and she wont be here till this weekend so ill try and post pictures then. I love the New Tank extra wattage more flow cool skimmer and the chiller/titanium heater combo is freaking awesome.

    I can feel my Purple Firefish and peppermint shrimp loves their new home much like their old one but different aquascaping :D

    what fish would be a good addition to this tank??

    currently I only have the purple firefish, a peppermint shrimp and a small pistol shrimp i got from "badbread" aka "Jay" (which i still have not seen?)

    at first i wanted a orange spotted goby but i feared that it may kill my corals by dropping sand on them
    clowns are always cool but i've had bad luck with them so no clowns
    i dont really want a fish that is very docile but then again not too agressive

    let me get some advice guys!


    THANKS ;D ;D

    Looks good Kevin. :D Definitely sounds like you are having a lot of fun with it!

    Your purple fire fish is a mild mannered fish, so I would go with something non-aggressive. It doesn't have to be slow though (although it is a small tank). What about a barnacle blenny? They tend to zip in and out of their hiding hole.

    Stick with the so called "nano" fish. :)

    Looks very nice. A word to the wise. Keep that GSP as seperated as you can from the majority of your rockwork or you may find yourself with a tank full of it. It grows quickly and can get out of control equally as quickly.
