I'm still working on that. Fish are far worse than cats. This one doesn't like that one, and that one doesn't like the other one, and no amount of baby gates will make them like each other! I know for sure I want a Benggai Cardinal (see link below). In addition, I would like an angelfish, a butterflyfish, a tang and a few others, although I'm still researching who gets along with whom in order to determine which specific fish I will put in the tank.

What other types of fish are thinking of getting?
Nemo, how original
Seriously though, that's an incredible set-up. Love the lighting.
How are you coping with the daily water changes and mineral testing?
What can I say...Nemo just seemed to suit him!
But, don't go asking me which one is Nemo and which one is Dory. Darned if I know. Interestingly, and many here might already know this, but all clownfish are born male. When they're paired up as babies (as these two are), the larger and more dominant of the two will turn into a female. So, over time I will know which one is Nemo.
As for daily water changes and mineral testing...not necessary. The coral reef that you see is artificial, although it's very realistic looking. Since there are no live corals in the tank, it only requires weekly water changes, and they're easy to do for two reasons. First, there is plumbing in the cabinet below the tank (drains, taps and an RO system), so the tank can be filled and drained automatically without the need for buckets (although we also need to add the salt mixture to the canister filter). The area where the tank is located was formerly a bar, so the plumbing already existed, which made life easy. Second, the tank is professionally maintained, so my fish guy does the water changes, which makes life really easy for me!
I just have to test to ensure the water parameters are normal, which takes all of 5 minutes a day.
