    hey werner, good on you to start this thread.

    Can we start with what you might like to achieve in your tank? are there any specific fish that you like the look of?

    For simple example and knowing you know the answer to this, a clown trigger is a fish you would like but doesnt fit the tank.

    how do you feel about the dwarf angles for example? a corral beauty, a jumping bean or perhaps a flame angel?

    have you looked at an of the 'tank filler type fish' a schaol of anthias (also known as goldies) or of Chromis?

    what about fish that tend to be at the bottom areas of the tank, wrasses or goby's etc?

    how much about marine fish and their behavior do you know?

    Hey werner! My advice would be to go search the net or get books and start familiarising yourself with marine fish, at least their names, then when you spot one you like you can do a bit of research on any future inhabitants for your tank!

    In my experience the "cheap" fish are usually the problem fish, so be careful. Fire goby's and Chromis are nice to have.
