    Well I posted something similar to this for compatible fish but I'm still not sure about what to put in my tank. Just have the maroon clown which I'm hoping someone will trade me something for it or buy it but anyway any suggestions for a 29 gallon?

    Royal grammas, chromis, blennies, gobies, dwarf angels if you are not doing a reef.

    Theres some pretty great fish that can fit in those size tanks,

    Are you doing a reef? or fish only?

    And what are your favorite colors :)?

    I meant more specific as in actual species lol. well lets see... royal gramma i had but I brought ick to my whole tank and I was really pissed off so thats a no but I actually did see it jump out of the LFS bag it was in when i put my hand over it XD. Chromis die too easily IME and the one I got had a white fungus (my LFS SUCKS! XD) Dwarf angels im doing a reef so thats like a 50/50 chance it'll nip at corals and 50/50 that it wont. gobies and blennies im open to suggestions

    yeah those do look nice; can they both be in 1 tank? I don't actually think so but might as well ask for the heck of it

    Well :p Some people are attacted to the fish because of color

    I Personally would do 2 percula clowns and a Basslet of some sort.

    My eye gets dragged to the Candy Basslet, which id never pay 800 for lol. Or the Swissguard or Golden.

    ORA breeds goldens and they are a heck of alot cheaper then wild caught ones. (Color is a tad dimmer)
    Heck our petco even has some ora ones for 39$ lol
