    Exlain,show a picture anything about what your tank is why this particular fish is in there reef safe or not, how big, what type. So basically anything. I am looking for some inspiration as too what I should add as my show fish in my reef tank 180gallon. I right now have a clown tang who I love. I want to add a trigger and a harlequin tusk as the big three showfish. I had a puffer as a showfish but he died due to the fact he did not eat after awhile and he succumed to it. still to this day I can not figure it out. He was doing so well always out and not being picked on or picking on anybody.

    My female naso tang. She's about 8 plus inches. I believe by bluezoo or liveaquaria standards that's a show size fish. But she's pretty awesome

    Unfortunately, most of mine died in a power loss while on vacation. A "pair" of Achilles tangs, a pair of Red Sea regal angel, supermale lineautus fairy wrasse, several large angels, a large adult red coris wrasse, a large Hawaiian banana wrasse (very blue), tons of others...

    Wow sorry to hear that I don't know the feeling of loosing that expensive and beutiful fish but have lost fish due to multiple crashes. Always sucks but something in the hobby always pulls you back in.

    My showpiece is an Achilles/Goldrim Hybrid tang. He is very hard to photograph since I don't have a good camera. I also have several others I consider to be show stoppers but that's because I enjoy keeping fish that most people never see. I love my Helfrichi firefish pair and my masked swallowtail angel pair along with my whitetail tang

    I know its not the most rare or expensive fish, but for me its my melanarus wrasse. He's a great looking fish, always out and about and gets along with everyone. His best friend is kole tang, (another common but beautiful fish, imo) but he likes cruisin with the.clowns too :)
