    Welcome yusuf, glad you joined ! :thumbup:

    Just a comment or two...you have 3 damsel species in there (2 different clowns & humbug)...they might cause problems as they grow, damsels are notoriously territorial, especially maroon clowns !

    The lionfish ( my favourite fish of all time ) will eat some of the inmates as it grows....basically ANYTHING it can suck into that enormous mouth of his , keep that in mind.

    Now keen on the pics

    Welcome to MASA, glad you joined. Just take note that the tank might become too cramped for the scopa tang and the lion fish - depending on the type lion of course ;)

    yusuf,have u seen the tanks at cosy corner?
    Defnitly need to sell or giveaway that lionfish,he will pose a huge threat o any smaller species fish in the tank.
    See if u can load some pics,this will help all the MASA experts to give better guidance etc.

    P.S.there are many cpt guys who will assist where they can.
    I dont live far from you

    im from crawford area,then good buddy keyaam on this forum is in G.P.
    Im not that experienced,but im sure i can convince keyaam to tag along and we can pop in by ur place to check ur setup out
    Frags normally will get posted in the for sale section(keep close eye)coz they go quick.
    Check the sponsors thread out,Dorry Pets CPT-Frans,very experienced and helpful reefer and has good deals on livestock and coral.He has corals currently available.

    All i can say is read,read and read,then when u done ask questions.
