View Full Version : What fish to add

11/03/2009, 02:31 PM
Hi! I have a 75 gallon reef set up w/ a sump now for about 2.5 years. I currently have a lionfish, 2 clowns and an engineer goby. I have a some mushrooms, a leather, anthela and a torch coral. I also have an anenome. My friend (who sells saltwater fish/coral) has given me some bad advice in the past. I don't want to be set up for failure. I wanted to get some new fish and he recommended the following:

longnose butterfly
2 blue throat triggers
queen angel

I want easy to care for stuff in the tank. I read the description on saltwaterfish, and it said that they are difficult to care for, and that triggers are food agressive. Anyone have any opionions/thoughts? Can you give me any suggestions on what to add?

Thanks in advance.

Your tank is not big enough for a Queen Angel. I'd scratch that one off the list.

How attached are you to the lion? You'll have a lot more choices on livestock if you sent it packing.

I'd go with a centropyge (pygmy) angel, like a flame angel, flameback angel, hawaiin potter's angel, something like that.
