I know for the most part what I can't have that I like. I like Lionfish, Puffers, and anything fast and cool. My local fish store rep told me to ask this lobby about mixing a valentini puffer into my SW tank. Also he mentioned possibly a flame angelfish. I did see the flame and was interested, but seemed pricy to be such an ordinary fish.The family wants colorful fish like "Nemo" and such, as where I would prefer a lionfish/ eel deal, or some soft corals. Just need some ideas of maybe somewhere in the middle. Thanks.

1 140 gl SW- 1 haitian anenome, 1 foxface rabbitfish, 1 bi-color pseudo, 1 green mandarin, 1 true percula clown, clean crew of snails and crabs

1 55gl FW- 3 Pirahnas

1 55gl FW- (future cichlids tank)

1 30gl Empty - need protein skimmer/ filter

1 10gl FW- 1 pleco, 1 tetra, 1 danio

Welcome to the forum, I'm sure we can come up with several ideas. If you want fast colorful fish, look to the Yellow Tang and the Hippo Tang, I have kept these together for years, they are both usually hardy providing you have good water quality and plenty of space. The Flame Angel is another fast mover, but like the tangs they do require higher water quality.

Whatever you choose, my main concern would be a month of quarantine before adding any new fish to your display

ty.

my 140 was moved from my brother-in-laws house, which is 6 houses from mine. Using a few large containers and a pump we were able to save a good amount of the water. The sand base wasnt changed. He has had this setup running for over 6 years that I know of.
