    1. Will never attack or eat corals.
    2. Doesn't dig the sand up.
    3. Won't attack or harass other fish but will stand up for himself when harassed by an agressive fish.
    4. Not a fincky eater.
    5. Not too big. Can fit in small tank.
    6. Beautiful looking. When friends come by they look at it and say "wow!"
    7. Easy to take care of.
    8. Not a jumper.
    9. Doesn't hide a lot. He swims about quite a bit.
    10. Not prone to ich.

      Please tell me the name of this fish!

    That would be my Banggai Cardinal, Bad Guy :D He does as he pleases, no one bullies him usually, but I've seen him come at another fish that tries to take a juicy piece of morsel. And unlike many banggais I know, he actually does swimg all around the tank!

    I have had both the chromis and the cardinal would have to say the chromis also they never stop. the cardinal stayed in one place most of the day only moved when food was put in.. but neither of them bothered a thing in the tank.

    My first thought was a chromis also. They seem to be the most stable.

    Actually, everyone that comes over comments on how cool the chromis look. I think they like how they seem to shimmer

    One criteria I left out is "not insanely expensive".

    What about the Court Jester Goby?

    I would say Mandarin too. Especially if you can get one that eats frozen foods.

    I guess the assessor can be expensive online. I got a killer deal from my LFS.

    MD ONLY if he/she eats frozen....
