    Hey guys I am looking for suggestions for a 20 gallon centerpiece for my FOWLR tank. I currently have a fire fish in it. Am looking for a colorful fish that is active and will instantly capture the attention of people looking at the tank.

    How about a Gramma Royal (only one). Eventually I want to get a fire goby also.

    A royal gramma would be an excellent choice and at 20 gallons you might be able to consider a jawfish, firefish or 6 line wrasse as well - though 6 line wrasses are often aggressive.

    Royals like to hide a lot though. Mine only started to be out in the tank "playing" recently after the addition of a Black Ocellaris to compliment my Black Ice. While the Ocellaris' are always going to be out and about, the Royal is now out much more than she used to be.

    Now if only my Mandarin liked being out more often.........

    I went to my LFS yesterday and I got a beautiful Royal Gramma, the first night he stayed inside a cave the whole time but today he is swimming in the open. Thank you for your suggestion its the perfect fish
