    Hey everyone im jake , i bought a bayu marine tank 6 months ago and stocked it with live rock and only added fish last week, 2 nemo's and one blue fishy with a yellow tail...

    I as of yet have not put in any corrals but am looking to start soon, just a bit to expensive atm and i dont know wich corrals will be good for the size and fish i have.

    Cant wait to add some shrimp lol they look so cool specialy the fire ones.

    Any advice and help is more than welcome:)

    Will post some pics soon!

    Welcome dude. The fish with the blue tail sounds like a damsel. EVIL fish! They get rather agro. How about some pics of your tank?

    WOW..that sounds a bit scary...:blush:..please do a bit of research BEFORE you add Livestock...you never know...you might just add a Fish that eats another one...or fight to death...or eat Shrimps...:)
    I don't know what size Tank you have but hope these will help...

    lol since when did a black fish with an orange tail become blue with a yellow tail? lol.. Its most probably a damsel, thats the only way the LFS gets rid of them, they lie to people :( .. Lol I saw you on FB!

    Jip its the damsel, look exactly like that one... I have seen it almost like raming the clowns when i feed them, almost like he wants all the food lol.

    Will he eat my shrimp, what other nice looking fish can i add to the tank that has nice colours like him as the blue fishy looks better then the nemo's to me?

    O and will he eat corrals if i add them?

    Will add pics as soon as i have the time to sit and take them and upload, not a nice view though i havent got any coral yet...

    thanks for the intrest.

    That damsel Ill catch and get rid off before you add any corals as it gets difficult to catch a fish when you have a lot of corals in your tank. That is an aggressive fish. You can look at adding some gobies, small wrasse,cardinals,chromis etc. just do your research before adding any fish or corals and make sure that they would survive in your tank. ask as many questions as often as you like. Welcome to the forum and looking forward to some pics.:thumbup:

    Hey jake what size tank do you have, it looks like the small ones and I wouldn't recommend the yellow tang for a tank smaller then 4 feet. They need swimming space and also when they outgrow (and they will) the tank, they will stress thanks to the small enclosure and this will cause white spot outbreaks in your tank. I would rather sell the yellow tang and maybe get a more nano type fish like chromis species, you can even put in a dwarf angel like the jumping bean as they don't grow much larger then 7cm, cardinals, blennies, gobies these are all nano fish and very interesting characters.

    I'm sorry to burst your bubble:tt2:, but the last pic is a fanworm, they are awesome little creatures that often pop out of live rock, you will most likely have more then one pretty soon.
