i have recently taken the step and up-graded from freshwater, to a marine set-up. although i am resonably experienced with freshwater i am a complete novice when it comes to marine set-ups. i have just purchased a large nano-cube of 40l (10.5 US gallons) and quite fancy a fuzzy dwarf lionfish. this creates a dilema for me as i am torn between the lionfish or a community tank (percula clown, firefish, damsels etc) which choice would be best for my situation and if possible compatible tank mates for the lionfish? bearing in mind my in-experience and tank size. any input greatly appreciated

I have no eaperience with this fish however, Bobalob, the dwarf fuzzy lion fish is the answer to your problems, as it is safe for the most part except for any invertabrates or fish that are small enough to fit in it’s mouth…

New to salt water/reef tank. I got our 1st one for my husband for Valentine’s Day 2010. We killed off the ENTIRE first batch & was almost ready to just stop there. Since then, we’ve lost a few more but are still learning & loving it. We’ve currently got a pink starfish, a fuzzy peach starfish, a diamond back goby, and some crabs/snails.
