    As per the title guys,

    Whether you have them already, want to buy them at some point but they're just too expensive.... whatever it may be. Name your top three fish, I'd like to see what people come up with.

    For me its the following in no particular order Tinkeri Butterfly, Blue Stripper Tamarin Wrasse and a Red Sea Regal Angel.

    I saw a niger trigger in an lfs, it was in a massive fowlr with an ausi harlequin tusk and a load of angels and butterflies.

    It looked awesome and I don't know if it was the lighting but it seemed to change shades of blue to purple. Beautiful fish.

    Let's do this a different way. If I could start over with stocking my 55 what would I like to have that I didn't get?

    Either a Canary or Midas blenny
    A fairy or flasher wrasse
    A hawkfish, probably longnose

    Of course one of my dream fish (based solely on appearance) is the lattice butterflyfish which wouldn't fit in my tank. I would like something this shape but I don't know if there's anything small enough for a 55.

    All of the above :)
    I love the niger trigger.
    I am setting up a 180 gallon, and loving this thread to look at ideas! :) Still making my stocking list and it changes daily.
    Powder Blue Tang will be one of my first additions
    Pair of Blue Jaw Triggers
    Now I want a moorish idol - but my luck with finicky eaters is terrible.


    (already have a foxface, sailfin, scooter, flamehawk and 2 clowns that will move over from my 120).

    For my RS c250 my dream fish was :
    Mandarin
    Coral Beauty or Flame Angel
    Anthias
    Have the mandarin, had 3 anthias but lost them to MV

    For my new 125 which is months from even a drop of water except to scour it I have no idea. Have to start looking to see what I can do
