    An evil saddleback clown that performed free electrolysis anytime I stuck my arm in the tank. I'm surprised I stayed in the hobby after that! :lol:

    I had one starter fish but I dont count that:)....
    My corals are pritty much the oldest things in my tank at this point mainly due to the cost of fish around here and that i wanted a reef only tank to start

    My first thing was a little female blue devil damsel and I only just recently lost her when my tank crashed when the breaker tripped while I was out of town. I would have to say I had her around 2yrs.

    I think the question where you vote should say "what was first in your aquarium, coral or fish?" Right now it just asks what was first, coral or fish and I took it to mean in the beginning so voted backwards. I had fish first.

    Good question, If it was now probably would go for the coral instead of the fish, but I was not planning on corals when I started, now I wish I never bought no fish...lol

    So, I saw this poll at the side of the 3reef main page and thought it was asking a general question about evolution, kinda like the chicken and the egg bit, so I voted coral. I guess technically that's right in the context of this thread, since I had a hitch hiker, but my first purchase was a couple of damsels. :p
