I have a 220g fowlr that I want to setup in my living room. The tank is in my wall. I don't want to manage more than 1 SPS tank, 1 is plenty lol.


But I'd love a cool idea.....my thoughts so are are 20+ sea horsses?

any creative ideas?

Dragonets; a Mandarin or two, and a Ruby Red or two....
This is what I had in mind, a dragonet tank with a maxima clam possibly. Could definitely pull it off, but it might leave some of your tank pretty bare. I'm using a much smaller system.

Macro + sea horses makes pretty good sense... Damsel idea is ok. if i were to do that i think id rather do like 25 pairs of clowns at the same time

If i were to do a second tank at this point, I would just do a "predator tank". Some of the cool more aggressive fish that are generally not reef safe.

Other then that I would look at odd ball things like upside down jellyfish. Maybe a scorpion fish. I would go odd ball if not predator though. But that's just me. lol

Have you ever used a spoon, hose and rubber band together to remove algae?
