    Guys I want to stock my tank with

    2X Picasso clownfish
    1X Midas Belnny
    1X Fire Goby
    1X Coral banded Shrimp

    I also want lots of coral bought first piece yesterday.. cant put it in yet, finger leather..


    Hopefully I can get my hands on everything i want because I live in Bloemfontein and we only have one marine fish store that gets a shipment once a month... the options and variety I can choose from is so limited... yesterday there were 3 pieces of coral for sale...:(

    Finger leather is good and your livestock.
    Those Picasso clowns can be pricey though.

    I'm sure when some frags become available someone wouldn't mind shipping to you.

    Crushed coral can trap detritus.

    You could but I would just replace it now while the tank is still cycling to prevent headaches.
