I was thinking about purchasing and setting up a 20 gallon saltwater or small reef tank. Could anybody give me a rough etimate how much everything would cost? thanks

    Really depends on what region you live in and filters and tools you pick. Prices vary greatly.

The one I got about 3 months ago quickly became my favorite! Coco (afrectionaltely named) is very beautiful, sweet tempered and hasn't touched my corals yet, but to put it lightly, she's not the brightest bulb on the Hanukkah tree lol she decided yesterday to bug my fiddler crab in a tight crevice and wedged herself stuck. When I freed her, she proceeded to do it again! Very pretty and cute fish with a fun personality, but not very bright. Will quickly become a favorite!

My 6 line wrasse Marley is absolutely beautiful, stunning, and quite a character at that! He lives in a 55 gallon tank with my blue damsel Dolce and raccoon butterfly Neytiri. The the funny (and kinda quirky) thing he does is that he's a bristleworn shredder. I watched him wait for 10 minutes for a medium sized worm (about 5") slowly come out of the rock, and when he saw it came out enough, he grabbed the worm and violently pulled it out of the rock. He then proceeded to pick and nip the worm for 5 minutes until it was dead and in a million pieces! I felt really bad for the worm, but at least I won't have a bristleworm problem ever again!

Beautiful and reef friendly. My tank just matured and I introduced my Tang with some Banner fish, gobies and common clowns. It has been three weeks now and no issue has arose. Very busy fish, needs lots of space as it loves to dart about.

I do agree that you need quite a bit of live rock as it doesn`t stop nibbling.
I have a huge aquarium (3,2m x 0,65m x 0,85{1500lts}) and it has managed to clean my glass in two days.

I would recommend this species definitely for first time reefers.

I have had a Flame angel for 4 months now. He took 2 weeks to eat frozen foods, but started grazing straight away (140g reef tank). Doesn't touch corals, so far, but keeps chasing my small flame back angel. Would not mix him with any other pigmy angel.

From my damsels are only aggressive with their kind. My domino damsels dont' attack the Sgt. Maj. and vice versa, but they will attack each other.

Do they eat clownfish and damsels if not I'm getting one.

    It really depends on the size of both the clownfish/damsels and the lionfish you get. If they are small enough to fit in the lionfish's mouth, there is a definite possibility of them being eaten!

The King Angelfish is surely a beauty to lay eyes on. I had mine all for a mere week, and within that week it ate and seem to do extremely well, and I awoke one morning to find it dead. It gave no warning that it was even sick or dying. I immediately tested the water to see what could have happened to it, all the testings were fine. All I can say is that maybe this fish is exactly like it says, moderately hardy.
