    I have 7 fish and want some more poop in the tank. What are your suggestions?

    1 royal gramma
    1 six line
    1 mandarin
    1 yellow tang
    2 clowns 1 huge 4 inch female and the little male.
    1 midas blenny
    I want to keep my phosphates up and I feed minimum 2 X's per day. Wish I could have another tang, but the yellow tang is the devil.

    What about an Anthias like Bartlett or a fathead sunburst? A lot of color and a lot of movement. It will do well with your multiple feedings.

    Bartletts are sexy as hell... Flasher Wrass is another really good POOP fish. Or you could go with a flame angel

    I should have said I can't have jumpers, I do like the wrasse. Never thought of angels because of nipping corals, experience with them? I'm going to look into an this a little more.

    As far as the dwarves go I've had a lemon peel, coral beauty and a flame.

    The lemonpeel was the only one that ever went after my corals.

    I also had a lemonpeel that was a nightmare and one flame that was bad. Tried a different flame with no problem as well as a coral beauty.

    don't get an angel, they will eventually nip...have you thought about a cardinal? my old one ate a ton

    my cardinal also never took crap from anyone, he would chase other fish off and my yellow tang never messed with him

    In all of the reef tanks I've had I've had an angel, usually and Emporer, Maculosus or Asfur and have yet to see one of those large angels take a swipe at a coral. They'll DEMOLISH any sponge they find, but I've never seen then go after one of my corals. I put one damn Coral Beauty in my 240 and it was like the fat man at the all you can eat buffet, totally decimated my Elegance and Bubble coral. I'll stick with my large angels.
