I'm wanting a nice new fish for my reef. Was thinking of something blue. I love PBTs but think my tank is too small. Would also love an angel but think they will munch my corals. Considering a coral beauty or two not sure how they are with corals?

I never really kept wrasse but I would like to keep one. My tank is open topped which has always worried me. Does anyone know of any colourful species.

My system is 112cm long x 70cm wide and has lots of open space as there is very little rock in it.

Any ideas?

What about an Atlantic blue, a fijian blue damsel shoal or a shoal of blue chromis?

A shoal does sound good but I think the bioload would be too much.

I'm thinking of risking a majestic again or maybe a flasher wrasse.

iv'e seen an atlantic blue in penzance almost the size of a dinner plate so i'd give that a miss, how's about a sunrise dottyback Pseudochromis flavivertex, great character yeh maybe a little jumpy but then u could say that about goby's, blennies,firefish etc etc captive bred Pseudochromis flavivertex are available and are good strong fish
