    Mixed reef, fireshrimp...... gives the best of all worlds! BUT - slightly more difficult to keep "everyone in the tank happy" ;-)

    i love tanks with things that move, like the tank moolis has in he's store, anybody seen that tank? what's that stuff in there? softies or LPS?

    sorry, but i'm not a big fan of sticks, perhaps i just haven't seen a nice stick tank in real life..........

    Sticks can look very nice but for me nothing beats the movement of softies and LPS.

    I personally like a nice colurful softy tank with a large variety of interesting inverts to add character.
