    I need some swimming red in my 75g. What's your favorite red fish?

    Have a 6 line wrasse, clowns, and a yellow tang in there right now, along with inverts and corals and such. Looking for a fish that'll be active and not just hide all day. Probably the last fish of the tank.

    What about a Ruby Red Dragonet? I believe ORA captive breeds them now...

    Much like a Mandarin you'd need a ton of pods, probably need to add them to the tank on a regular basis. But they are pretty:

    Or a flasher or fairy wrasse of some kind.

    Did you make any decisions about a new red fish?

    Turns out the husband wanted blue. So we went to aquatic art and picked a tri-color wrasse. A little blue, a little red, and bonus yellow!

    That peppermint hogfish though - I’m going to have to keep an eye out for one of those.
