    I have a purple firefish in my tank for some time now, along with a pair of generic clownfish and a blue neon goby. i haven't seen any aggression in the entire time he has been in there. All the parameters i can test for are stable (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate, Ph) and have been for...

    Hey guys so i have had quite a few regular firefish but never a purple. My LFS got a purple in for me today and i just have some questions. Can i mix a purple with 2 regular firefish? I heard purples don't get along in pairs. But regular do well in odd amounts from my knowledge like owning 3...

    Hi all, I have done a fair bit of "Googling" on this subject, including a few posts from here but much of what I have read seems to be anecdotal and not personal experiences. I have a 150gal setup (spec's are in Spec folder) which until now has been fairly fishless (mostly due to an...

    I woke up this morning to a turned over purple firefish goby :(... I loved this thing. It was gorgeous and I just got it 5 days ago. He seemed to be doing great was a little timid at first but I added a new cleaner shrimp and Angel yesterday and he became really active swimming by the cleaner...

    So I wanna add 3 purple firefish to my tank. Anyone see issues with this. If added simultaneously three could work, right? And not worried about the bioload I think that scavengeristic nature will help too. Insight anyone.

    firefish - compatibility, quantity hubby saw firefish for the first time on our last visit to the lfs (not sure why he hasn't noticed them before - they've been there on almost every lfs visit we've made!). he's become quite enamoured by them. lfs said they were best in groups of 3-5 to reduce...

    So we want to add a new small fish to our 135 reef. Currently we have three clown fairy wrasses (1m&2f) (Cirrhilabrus solorensis), a f melanurus wrasse (Halichoeres melanurus), seven green chromis, a midas blenny, a blue spot jaw, 2 percs, 2 banggai cards, a yellow tang, and a blue jaw...

    Ok, I'm looking for a few suggestions since this is just getting depressing. My 30g all-in-one is taking off far better than I ever imagined (parameters, growth, etc). So well, in fact, that I've chosen to make an SPS-dominated reef with some brilliant colors. While expected, my fire shrimp...

    This all started with a 72 gal fish only bow front. Then we saw all the reef tanks set up at the fish stores and HAD to have one of those too. The first one was a 13 gal with PC's which was quickly followed by a 42 with T5's, which still wasn't big enough so we converted that one into a 180 with...

    if you had a 10 gallon tank and wanted to put in 2 fish either 2 hi fin red banded gobies OR 1 firefish and 1 watchmen goby .... or any other type of fish you might choose they have to be reef safe.

    Does anyone know if you can put a Scissortail Goby's, Purple Firefish and Firefish together???? I was thinking about putting two of each in the tank. Or is it better to have all the same.

  18. Nano Reefs
    Ok, with the upcoming nano build off, I have started to think about what kind of fish and clean up crews I want to keep. I figured I would ask you, the expert on your suggestions. First of all, my goal with the 10g is to have a sumpless design that has smooth flowing lines. Basically, I do not...

    Now while in selecting of which Anthias species I feel better for either 180 or 240 due to the fish maximum growth. And while listing these I began thinking that I will forget on the idea of either a dwarf or middle size growing angelfish due to tank space and also that most any angel I can...

    What would be a really nice stocking list for a 58G (36x18x21) tank? A tank this small cant have tangs or anthias unfortunately.
