    Sand sifters

    zebra eels are pretty peaceful. those gobies are amazing sand stirrers and do it constantly. they like to jump out of the tank. they are also tough to keep alive for long periods of time in most cases

    the amount of rock and sand you have depends on what you want or what you are gonna keep. surprised some of you are giving this guy generalaites when you don't know what he was gonna keep in his tank. sharks and rays should not have lots of and sometimes no rock in their tank. and live sand...

    Dwarf Lion/Trigger

    do you have a tank yet? a dwarf can stay in a pretty small tank (20 gallon) and it would take some time for it to outgrow it. but it would have to be alone in that tank and how fun would that be? none. put it in a tank with some other fish in a much larger tank.

    I need eel suggestions

    pass on the ribbon it will likely get out of your tank and outgrow it quickly. the snowflake is very passive and wouldn't even bite you if you put your finger by its mouth. its also a community eel and can be found easily in small sizes. just ask your fav lfs to get you a small one. if they...

    is it red and mat/slime like covering rocks and stuff or is it something else? where is it in your tank? on the gravel or rocks?

    blue ribbon eel ate cleaner shrimp?

    i'm guessing the trigger but the eel could have done it also. you've got a strange combo of fish in your tank what's up with that? you should probably decide if you want exclusively aggressive or get rid of the eel and trigger and go community with inverts

    do you have the porks in the same tank? they don't bite off each others tailfins? or are you feeding constantly? sounds like fun to have that much personality in one tank.

    What Trigger fish can I add....PinkTail Trigger

    pinktails are great triggers. all the triggers are going to eat any invert you put in your tank. a coral banded may be able to protect itself because of its claws but the trigger will likely get it when its napping over time. fish are kind of like people in that some they have different...
