What's the fish length to tank width ratio? That's what I would go with.

Do you have a particular fish in mind?

not sure what you mean dave,lol

the tank is 19"w x 20" tall x 12" deep.

not got a specific fish in mind yet chris, just wanted to see if it was possible first, however, a coral beauty would be nice but im thinking its too big for the tank.

Coral beauties are a bit big for a RR

Id go for either an acanthops or an argi or a flavicauda or two personally or even an aurantia of you desire a touch more class!!!!

I had a flame angel in my 100L nano,
He was fine until a power cut wiped him out ;)

Hi Ben,if you go for one of the dwarfs from us and it does not work out,bring it back and maybe try a different fish.

I would highly recommend a flameback angel (Centropyge acanthops), stays nice and small, great colours too. Had my one in a 12g and now in my new 20g - aggressive little fella, but very cool :D
