I always consider myself a fish guy but I was wrong
My friend have 55 amazing fish on his Elos 90 gallon reef tank and he want some more.
He's been a long time reefer with an amazing reef tank.

And he show me this picture in Thailand

Now I am ditching all my nutrient sensitive acropora
To go back on my original plan that is easy SPS

So far I have 80 fish and probably will have more later on.

I know some of my other friend have a minimal fish and their corals looks really good.


How about you?
Fish or corals

Throwing aside all the maintenance issues and overcrowding etc..tanks like that are fun to look at for a few minutes but that's it. Way too busy to sit down and actually see what going on. It becomes a blur of motion and loses it's peacefulness and intimacy.

I will post some picture tomorrow of my tank
When all settle in

I don't think maintenance is a problem with lot of fish.

I keep water. The SPS in the water are just a bonus.

Corals are great, but fish take the cake.

My tank few weeks ago with 55 fish
Nothing will really change except all the small colony of sensitive acropora will be gone large colonies stay

I have fish to keep my "reef" tank a little more interesting and mainly for my family and friends to see Nemo.

If I really want to see a bunch of cool salwater fish in a big tank, I go get a few beers at the bar at Bass Pro Shop, lol.

there should be an "invert" option! I work with nano tanks, so having fish dominated is pretty impossible. I love coral, but since I don't work with fish I would rather have a plethora of neat inverts. When finished, my stock list will include:

-Pom pom crab
-porcelian crab
-halloween hermit crab
-electric blue hermit crab
-zebra hermit crab
-pedersons anemone shrimp
-skunk cleaner shrimp
-sexy shrimp
-nassarious snails
-turbo snails
-feather dusters

I voted coral, but I love my little inverts!!!

Both here also, But I wouldnt have a fish or coral that was going to dictate how the rest of the tank is/operates.
