Hey all,

I've got my 37 gallon up and cycling and just wanted to run my wish list by everyone and see what y'all thought. I am all about hearing whomever's opinion, so please don't feel shy to shoot me down.

I have a SeaClone 125 for protein skimming and 29.5lbs of live rock on top of a 3inch bed of "live" sand. I'm looking for a peaceful, fun to watch setup, btw.

Fish:
2 Bangai Cardinals
2 Percula Clowns OR 2 Sebae Clowns OR *Insert suggestion here*
(I'm curious as to anyone who has kept Bangai Cardinals who their best tank mates are)

Inverts:
3 Turbo Snails
2 Peppermint Shrimp OR 2 Skunk Cleaner Shrimp
1 Coral Banded Shrimp
3 Hermit Crabs (these guys don't have to stay, I just think they are cool)
1 Chocolate Chip Starfish.

I have a feeling the CCS will be nixed right away.

Also, do you use the same quarantine procedure for inverts and starfish?

I think that's everything. If I can clarify anything else, let me know.

Thanks,
Adam

Are you using any sort of filter?


Looks like a pretty good setup.

You could probably add a blenny, goby, or a small wrasse to that tank.

I'm just using the live rock and sand w/ the protein skimmer. I have a Penguin 125 I could set up, but I was under the impression that I would be OK w/ just the live rock and protein skimmer.

If this is incorrect, let me know.

Thanks for the replies, I'll check out some wrasses at the LFSes. My favorite has a Sunset Wrasse that looks very awesome.

With weekly 10 percent water changes you will be OK. I'd run the penguin without the bio-wheel just to supplement the natural filtration. It can't hurt and would only help. Especially at the beginning till your sand bed gets fully cycled.

I can definitely do that. Any extra filtration is always good.

Thanks for the tip, SoS!

Clowns and bangaiis work well together. I have mine with clowns, gobies, chromises, blennies. They seem to keep to themselves and don't bother any thing in the tank. But they become very active at night since they are a natural night hunter.

I'm glad to hear that they become active, LOL. I love how they look but everytime I see the pair at my LFS they are just hovering around. Which I don't mind, I was just hoping to get a little movement going on in my tank.

Glad to hear that all those fish go well together, sounds great.

Thanks for the tip!

if you go with a pair of bangaiis its best to add them together. I've heard of people trying to add another after one has already been established and not working out. I originally had 2 but one died and was afraid to add another afterwards also there meat eaters so make sure you have plenty of shrimp, krill and so on.

Karlas: That sounds like a plan. I will definitely go w/ a pair at a time.

Thanks,
Adam
