View Full Version : Centerpiece Fish for 90 Gallon FOWLR

02/14/2017, 07:59 PM
I have a 90 gallon tank that I'm going to setup as a FOWLR. I'd like to keep one fish as the centerpiece. The problem is, the fish I want will all outgrow a 90 (IE: Clown Trigger, Emperor Angel, Personifer Angel, etc) pretty quickly.

That said, I'm looking for suggestions... If you were to pick one fish for a 90 gallon, what would you choose?

NOOO!!! Requires a 180 or bigger. What about a Whitetail Bristletooth Tang?

Yeah I don't think a Tusk would work. Cool fish but I don't think a 90 would be sufficient and it's not my favorite to be honest. Same with a bristletooth tang.

You could do a pair of smaller lion fish, fuzzy or zebra or one of the medium sized lionfish radiata or antennata. Choosing a lionfish would limit tankmates though.

My "center piece" fish I guess would be my melanurus wrasse, biggest most active fish in the tank and really great looking. Definitely draws the attention of anyone looking at the tank.

Dogface puffer

I've got a dwarf lion 90g so I'm biased toward lions. But if I didn't have the lions, I'd consider a trio of leopard wrasse.

Will it have any tankmates?

I haven't decided yet. Originally, I was thinking of setting up the tank with one single fish, in order to have more options. I wouldn't have to worry about aggression, and I could theoretically keep a larger fish. The idea isn't set in stone, and I'm not in a rush to purchase something.

Thank you all for the suggestions so far.

For a solo fish the dogface puffer is a good suggestion. Im a fan of puffers. My favorite single occupant tank ever is a bimac octopus but they dont live long. I have a 75g sitting in my fish room that will be setup as soon as i see another octopus but they can be expensive to feed

I would definitely recommend against a dogface puffer, they get way too big

Love these fish, but yes, it would be killer (I'd be dead! :lol2:)

Looks like the Joc sold because I didn't see it on DD
