Some livestock pics

I thought I'd post some more pics of my corals an livestock.
I currently have 1 flowerpot coral, 1 finger leather (that will not attach with putty, glue, sewing, or rubber bands), 1 headed Duncan, 1 green zoa, and some random polyps that grew off the LR.
2 oscellaris paired clowns, 1 mandarin, 1 three stripe damsel, and a brittle star.

More to come!
I'd love to see some mandarins!

Also would like to hear some suggestions on fish and coral to add, easy to moderate. 29 gallon. Probably going to get a flame angel when I have the money.

Flame angels are sweet jut keep him well fed they can be known to nip at corals. I had one a while that did here and there but nevt any significant damage . The coral beauty's would be a good choice to

Angels and corals. I would not do it. I have known people that have successfully done this for two to three years to find one morning a coral torn to shreds. He decided to wait till the weekend to pull the rock out so he could capture the culprit. Only the next morning :ohmy: two more corals down. Another person did a Koran angel for 8 months with no problem. He worked much quicker when he flipped to the dark side. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ took out a beautiful plate coral, frog spawn, and what he called a war coral in one night.

I did a Flame Angel for a bit, didn't nip at anything of mine luckily. When it comes to my corals though I get paranoid of anything that could hurt them. Any of the [url=http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/aquarium-fish-supplies.cfm?c=15+1378]reef safe wrasse[/url] purchased at a 2"-2.5" size would be great. I was gonna say a blenny but that would compete for territory with the mandarin, either passively by just eating pods or actively by pushing each other around.

Any colors you are looking for in a fish? As in 3 of my 4 fish are red, so anything new I add I need to not be red.

Lol a war coral or a war on coral?

Bad joke of the day out of the way....now on to better things

If you want lots of activity and things interacting with other things. You can never go wrong with shrimp. Couple of cleaners maybe a group of peppermints. They are super easy and if you want to clean under your finger nails, they will help you there as well. Zooanthids are super easy and will spred pretty quickly. (put little rocks around them and as they spred you can move them around or even trade them for new ๐Ÿ˜› )

A little advice for you. Any of these leather corals can and will create lots of additional leather corals. They can quickly take over a small tank. I would really keep an eye on this. These are great corals to get into the hobby with, but they often become just like weeds and can he hard to completely remove once established.

Also, is your Mandarin trained to eat frozen or pellet food. If not, a 29 gallon may not sustain enough of a pod population for this fish to servive. Keep an eye on the health of this fish. I really wish these fish were more expensive because folks buy them because they are not expensive as marine fish go and they are beautiful. Because of that, people tend to buy them without really understanding what it takes to keep them. If it is eating frozen or pellet foods, then the pod population will not matter at all. Hope this helps.

+1 it would be very worthwhile for you to do some research on techniques that can help you increase your pod population...it can probably be done in a 29, but you will definitely need to shore things up so a population can exist/increase to support the madarin

Mandarin's? I can do some Mandarin pics.

The bullet!!
