Emperor angel or purple tang... While my tank would meet the minimum size, I don't think it's big enough to do right for these fish.

I feel like all of us have that one fish we wish we could keep in our tank, but maybe we can't for some reason. Maybe it is because it isn't compatible with the rest of the tank, it is rare and expensive, or maybe not feeling confident enough in keeping that particular fish. I am wondering what is the fish you wish you could have in your tank right now!

Moray Eal one of the smaller species but it will just eat everything in my reef tank so unfortunately I’ll give it a miss

Would love to get my mandarin back he died recently and it’s my most fav fish out of them all

Such a character!

Powder blue tang, I don't think they do well in 3 foot tanks. Might be worth an upgrade just for that

Orange spotted filefish, I'd pick these up straight away if I was sure they could thrive eating prepared foods

I just picked one up. Was so worried it wouldn’t eat or would eat all my sps. So far he is doing well loves the masstick. Pretty fat and leave my corals alone. I have to agree one of my favourite fish. Make sure if you buy one it’s super healthy and not too skinny.
