Hi Michael sounds good, but as you know goniopora are difficult as it is but who knows maybe they will feed off the clownfish poop and do well! I thought the flame would nip glad to hear it has stopped, if you really ever want an anemone and want peace of mind that no powerheads wil get involved you can always design small boxes to fit around your pumps made of black acrylic with slits to allow water through sort of like a double grid like a tunze wave box in a way and then you wont have any problems with it being damaged but your best species would be still heteractis crispa although if you do the boxes around the pumps, you could also add rose bubbles but i would not add magnifica they have tendency to wander up high even on glass

A great looking tank. Very nice and neat. Love the simple open scaping and selection of live stock.

I can just imagine what this tank looks like in real live.

Are those clowns snow flakes? Love them!!
