    I know this is a common and irritating Q...but list ur favourite first time fish for a first time setup...obviously with live rock.

    The reason im asking is coz everyone has theres own style and taste in fish.

    fanx for bearing with me

    how about a school of Chromis, agree that Clowns may be problematic as very sensitive to fluctuations in parameters .. if you want, try and add later to tank ..

    Im gona use either a std 4ft marine setup....or a custom 3ft x 490 x 490 setup. With a std 3ft tank as a sump tank.....also thinking of throwing a 1.5ft tank in as my first stage sump tank running into the 3ft
