    Another new edition. This Powder Brown is such a cool character. Acts like he has been in the tank for ages. Awesome personality.
    He also really enjoys posing. Awesome to take pics of fish that show off.

    Since so much has been added in the last few months thought I'll post my current fish list. I will also try pair up as many fish as possible - everything is always better in two's :

    1x Bamboo Shark (Toothless)
    1x Chromis
    1x Female Blue Throat Trigger
    2x Coral Beauties (Breeding pair)
    2x Emperor Angels (1x Normal tail , 1x Tailless)
    1x Trimac Angel (Tailless)
    1x Fiji Foxface
    1x Lamarck Angel
    2x Bird Wrasse (Bonded Pair)
    1x Multispinnis Angel
    2x Quoyi Parrot (Wish they would bond)
    1x Desjardini Sailfin
    1x Tiger Damsel (Chrysiptera Annulata)
    1x Valentini Toby Puffer
    2x Swallowtail Angels (Both female)
    2x Longnose Butterflies
    1x Powder Brown

    Still on my wishlist:

    Regal angel pair
    Powder Blue (hoping there is enough space for powder brown and blue to get along)
    Clown tang (love the colours on these guys)
    Sohal Tang
    Purple tang
    Moorish idols (maybe try a small school)
    Masked Swallowtail Angel (Genicanthus semifasciatus)
    Watanabei angel
    Burgess Butterfly
    Mitratus Butterfly
    Golden Angel
    Lemonpeel Angel
    Flame Angel
    Potters Angel
    Achilles Tang
    Atlantic blue tang


    What would you guys like to see added? Unfortunately no sand burying wrasse or fish small enough for Toothless to eat.

    He only worries zoas at the moment. It is one of my favorite fish of all time. So he will come 1st.

    Really hope I can pair up my current emperor with my new tailless one

    As juveniles i have never had issues I would say 95% - 98% reef safe.

    I have never kept an adult so I cant comment when they age.

    Impressive list thus far. I see you have a Sohal and a Clown tang on your wanted list. Arent those two very agressive as adults? They are really beautiful fish.

    Yeah you are right about that.

    Hoping the extra swimming space will allow for the aggression to decrease.
    If fighting does occur I will be removing my least favourite.

    Hopefully it wont come to that. Would be awesome seeing a adult Clown in your tank. They are really good looking fish. So when are you adding more chromis or a few Anthias to the list?

    I must agree with you. Clown tangs are stunning. I will also get 2 perhaps they can keep eachother enough company and reduce aggression.
    I agree I am missing small fish but the shark takes them out too easily. Toothless is my baby, I hatched him from an egg so he is not going anywhere.
