    First question, what do you call the level of feeders, like top, middle, bottom, I'd like to stock my new tank in a balanced Eco-system.

    Also any thoughts of fish to create this balanced tank?

    Well for starters, most gobies, jawfish and Madarins eat from the bottom of the tank (I don't recommend madarins for a new reefer) And honestly anything else goes where ever the food is, except lions and scorpions. Maybe you should just pick out a bunch of fish you want (doesn't matter if it's way too many) and then narrow it down yourself and bring that list to us and we'll help you.

    +1 spongey. Salt doesn't really have the "levels" like freshwater does.

    Thank you both, I was going to go with a Lionfish, but then I got thinking about the wow factor, 1 fish is wow, many colored fish is WOW!

    I'm working my list now
