    im starting to plan my next load of imports and in this want to get a few new fish. as I am going direct to suppliers i have a good chance of getting what i want.

    I am starting tom plan the list and gathering info on different fish and different groups of fish.

    I'll put up an excell list i am working on and if anyone has specific suggestions or info on the fish in this list please feel free to comment.

    NOTE i did basic research with livequariua and bluezoo and have attached a number of links to those fish so you can see which fish i am looking at.

    I like:
    Bellus, Lamarck, Pakistan, Sohal

    I don't Like:
    Shallowtail, midnight

    Careful the Elibi, will cane the other angels and be sad to see a R2K pair of golden die of stress.

    I think you could be more adventurous with your tangs ;)

    i could be more adventurous with tangs, but i have three in already, so only space for one or two, if i am going with a trigger. the achilies is great but expensive and aggresive :(

    I had to work this list Saturday night while being busy with tooooo may :peroni::peroni::peroni::peroni::peroni::peroni::peroni::peroni::peroni:
    but the norwegian version of peroni, can't remember the names.

    And Google is my friend... but I got and had too much on my mind and to drink.

    Crispin, give me a change please. I did say I like a lot of smaller fish compare to a few big ones, but there surely are beauties in this list.

    It would be nice to split a list like this into big, medium and smaller species.
    Is that possible? or too difficult or am I difficult?

    hehe i think we all had hangovers thenext morning and i noted you and knut were still tucked up when torunn and I fed the animals :)

    by all means break it up into big and small if u like:) the list i posted here isnt the long list i was working on, i culled around 90% of the fish of that list so that I have a more managable list.

    scribbles are aggressive so it must be one of the last fish in
