PostSubject: Saltwater Choices   Fri Feb 15, 2008 8:19 am

Alright, so I have a 24 gallon NanoCube saltwater aquarium. It is fairly lightly stocked, and I am trying to create a final stocking plan before I actually stock it. I have two choices: a Possum Wrasse, OR, a pair of black and white clownfish. I will list the pro's and cons of each, as I'm sure most, if not all, of the member here aren't very experienced with stocking saltwater aquariums.

Possum Wrasse
Pros:
-Beautiful
-Active
-Will eat bristleworms
-Great personality

Cons:
-Fragile
-Specialized diet
-Prone to ich
-Expensive
-Activity requires space to swim

Black and White Clownfish Pair
Pros:
-Great looking
-Hardy fish
-Will interact with each other
-Will eat a variety of foods
-Will "Host" corals

Cons:
-Bad streak with clownfish (can't keep one alive for more than a month)
-Expensive to get two
-Difficult to find
-Prone to ich
-Behavior has been known to change drastically

So that's it. I'm going to QT these fish before I add them, of course. I just need some opinions on which one do you think would be best?

Nope, territorial issues. I ended up getting a pair of baby onyx percula clownfish. They are very cute, but rather fragile. I have made some drastic changes to the tank, that will help everything live better. *fingers crossed*
