Well......Ive got some choices now, and quite a bit of room so I have options.

I just sold a couple things taking up space in the garage and driveway and Im taking part of it to restock.

Corals are my main priority, so I dont intend on buying any high dollar fish, but im open to suggestions.

The most painful fish loss was my sixline ive had for almost 3 years and he was huge. :(

anyway......here is what survived

225-
7" chevron
2.5" tomini
pink spotted watchman
false perc and his condy

90-
2.5" tomini

Here is what i am thinkin of adding so far.

225-

another false perc- I know its a risk. I have never fed this condy and it hasnt eaten his provider yet........im hoping that if i add another smaller FP that it will both pair up and NOT get eaten

6-line

mandarin

and the 90-

scribbled rabbitfish

bluejaw trigger


What else??

ignoring the other fish... :)

the LFS had a filefish in one of their display tanks a little while ago. not sure which kind it was, it had a brown'ish coloring, but that was one cool looking fish.


J.
they are defintely cool looking.......but Ive already killed plenty of animals recently. ;)

You forgot the pair of Sohals.

I like your list. I still like the blue jaw, and I'd also recommend one of the mimic tangs. I'd like to get my hands on a half-black mimic if you could find one, but my yellow picks rocks all day long without bothering any corals (I think Whiskey had a problem with one picking on a coral, but he probably had the dwarf angel equivolent... hehe!). He's a real treat to watch, and I'm looking forward to watching him morph to the adult coloration. Very dosile for an Acanthurus sp. tang, too.

yeah.......my blue jaw was just coming around before the accident. Hes getting replaced no question.

I dont love boring yellow tangs. No offense yellow tang owners. :) What do they morph into?? Would one be cool with the chevron and tomini already in there?? I dont plan on putting any more tangs besides the tomini in the small tank.

if your getting a trumpetfish you might as well assemble a whole band !
along with the trumpet get a drum , and a guitarfish:rotflmao: !
how about a nice blue stripe or a blue ring angelfish !
a springers dottyback !
a fourline instead of a sixline wrasse !
a pacific coral rabbitfish !
a lieutenant tang ( acanthurus tennentii ) awesome looking tang i.m.o.
either a lineatus or an exquisite wrasse !
a small group of blue reef chromis (chromis cyanea )!
a heniochus butterfly !
a yellow assessor !
candycane wrasse !
pyramid butterfly fish !
o.k. i'm out of ideas :funny: !

anyone have any experience with a niger trigger??

There is one at the LFS right now about 3.5-4" and he is gorgeous. Active and out front too. I almost recall picking the bluethroat over the niger for a specific reason....just cant remember why.

When I first saw this thread I thought you were looking for frags to restock.
I don't have much but if you get to the Carson City (south of Reno) area and you know how to frag you are welcome to just about anything I have. zoas frogspawn torch xenia mushrooms kenya. I don't know how to frag and I don't want to ship but I have boxes and if you want to frag and ship PM me. This offer extends to just about anyone in a disaster cleanup mode and any others that want to trade

:) Nope....just trying to pick out some fish. I already have a pretty good idea of what im throwing in coralwise........

Thank you and everyone else who has offered frags. It means a lot to know people feel your pain and would be willing to help out when chips are down.

tomini
pink spotted watchman
2 false percs
6 line wrasse
