    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

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