    So I have been interested in having a group of fish recently, but am having a hard time deciding on anything. I know most fish don't "school" in aquara like they do in the wild, but I think a group of fish would help complete the "reefyness" of my tank. My tank is 120 gallons with a 30 gallon...

    I'm in love with both of these anthias, and have been contemplating adding one, or both to my reef. I've read they're deep water anthias, so will they be ok in a reef setting (warming water, brighter lights, ect) ?? I wouldn't be adding them for about another week, so I thought I'd do some...
