    HI All

    Our Office tank is just about ready for life stock, the tank has been cycling for +/- 4 month now, so now it’s time to think about choosing fish, I know for a start to get 2 fish which we intend to do, after that we will introduce fish slowly but I need to know what fish?

    Things I know we have to consider is, that there is a lot of movement in the office, and people want to see the fish, so we cannot get fish that duck and dive when people want to see the tank, and there must be a lot of color

    So what FISH???? :biggrin:

    Maybe start out with a few blue/green chromis they won't duck and dive, are very hardy and won't bother whatever you add after them.

    Not sure it should be a first fish but you have to get a yellow tang at some stage. The yellow really stands out and they are characters. Mine stalks me when I'm in the room. He is always on the side of the tank where I am and has a beady eye on me.

    Secondly, blennies, maybe a bicoloured. Also characters

    Because you have to get the mandatory NEMO
    2 nice Ocealaris Clowns.

    I'm also looking for a nice pair, if I find them, will let you know. If you do find them first, please let me know. I do not like the light orange variations.

    For an office tank where nemo is the only fish a lot of people know you have to have clowns.

    Gobies, especially sand sifting gobies, only at least a month after first fish. You need some life in the sand for them to feed from.

    I had 13 chromis in my tank which is the same size and I never saw them. They hid as soon as you came close to the tank. They only came out after I added other fish that stayed in the open.
