Chain Link eels, are the least aggressive eels for your tank. Their eyesight is not as good as their sense of smell, they like frozen& fresh pieces of shrimp & other meaty foods. They really do not mess with larger fish but fish that are bite-sized may become a meal. The eels tend to hide during the day (unless they smell food), but they are more active at night.
As the Bi-Color Damsel matures, it becomes extremely aggressive towards other fish causing problems in selection of other fish to add to the aquarium. A 30 gallon tank or larger is suitable in size for the Bi-color Damsel. It feeds on zooplankton and algae and is prone to disease if proper aquarium management is not practiced. The diet should consist of a variety of meaty items, frozen preparations, and some vegetable matter.
The Slippery Dick Wrasse Individuals can differ greatly in color and markings depending on habitat, phase and mating, eats small brine shrimp and invertebrates
The Slippery Dick In the home aquarium needs to be kept with other semi-aggressive fish and others with a different body shape. Have lots of good hiding places and thick sandy substrate.
The Gold Dust Molly is a livebearer that requires a spawning box in a 25 gallon, or larger breeding tank. The aquarium should be planted densely as possible or have a thick algae mat. Having a group of floating plants in the corner of your aquarium will promote rearing outside of the breeding tank.
Can grow lengths up to 45 cm (18 in), weight up to 1.6 kg (3.5lbs).
DISTRIBUTION/HABITAT: Found in Bermuda, Florida, Bahamas, Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico to Brazil on offshore reefs, 2 –70+ m (6-200+ ft). Travel solitary or in pairs among sea fans, sea whips and corals.
DIET IN THE WILD: Queen angelfish primarily feed on sponges and corals.; also algae, tunicates, hydroids and bryozoans. Juveniles glean ectoparasites from other fish.
The Black Angelfish is hardy, and can reach a length of 20 inches as an adult. It therefore requires a 250 gallon or larger tank. The tank should contain large amounts of live rock for hiding and grazing. Gray Black Angelfish is prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles.
A varied diet should be provided which includes Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, and mysis or frozen shrimp.
Native to the deep-water reefs of the Caribbean, this member of the Grammidae family prefers extensive rockwork caves in which to hide and somewhat subdued lighting. Since it demonstrates territorial aggression towards its own kind, the Royal Gramma Basslet should be housed singly. However, most Royal Gramma Basslets are peaceful towards tankmates of similar size and temperament.
For the best care, keep the Royal Gramma Basslet in reef systems of at least 30 gallons.
The Pygmy Angelfish requires a 55 gallon or larger tank with numerous hiding places and live rock for grazing on microalgae. It may nip at large-polyped stony corals and clam mantles. The Pygmy Angelfish is an aggressive little angelfish, so it is best to never have more than one male per tank, since they may fight to the death.
These wonderful fish are well behaved and are fitting for almost any aquarium.
Also known as Serranus tortugarum, it is geographically found in the western Atlantic and Caribbean and lives among rubble and sand near the reefs.
The Chalk Basslet only requires a minimum of thirty gallons (113.6 liters). They will typically find a spot they like and hover around a cave or a pile of rock rubble.
The Chalk Basslet is a peaceful fish that will get along with other passive tankmates.
The Lantern Basslet, Serranus baldwini, features beautiful body markings mottled with orange, black and brown colors. Like other Basslets they should not be housed with another Basslets to avoid aggression, and are better kept with larger tank mates.
Corals are safe from this Basslet, though they will consume smaller fish and invertebrates present in the tank.
Diet should include a variety of live or frozen mysis shrimp and vitamin enriched brine shrimp as well as chopped meaty foods like clam.
Care-The Yellowhead Jawfish is moderately hardy. It tends to be shy and is best kept with other docile fish. It will not bother other tank inhabitants, but other burrowing fish may bully it. It needs to be kept on 5-7 inches of fine soft substrate such as sand of various particle sizes (not fine).
Diet-Yellowhead jawfish feed on anything that happens to stroll (or swim) past the burrow entrance in the wild.

The Doctor Surgeonfish is almost identical to the Ocean Surgeon. The most distinguishing difference is the Doctor Surgeon has faint stripes, whereas the Ocean Surgeon does not. Great algae eaters, as most tangs/surgeons are. Can be aggressive towards other tangs/surgeons.
Harlequin Bass, Serranus tigrinus, are a common bass from Florida and the Caribbean. They have a very unique yellow, white and black pattern making them an attractive fish. They do very well in most aquaria, and because they stay relatively small and have good nature, they are great for nano reef tanks. They rarely grow larger than 4″, and the ones we sell are about 2.5″ to 3″ in length.
Tomato Clownfish is found throughout the Pacific, almost always in association with an anemone such as Bubbletip Sea Anemone. It has also been known to use coral as a host in the absence of an anemone. Captive-Bred Tomato clowns are usually darker in coloration to their wild counterparts, but as the fish matures, it will lighten to a nice red/orange coloration. It can attain a length of 5 inches, but it usually reaches a maximum of 3.5 inches in an aquarium.
