Your Favorite Nano Fish.

I need some ideas for my aquapod 12 and I figured people can show off their own or their favorite nano fish. Well here is mine even though I cannot have one :

" table salt?!?!"

i bet you could keep a mandarin in a nano, you just need a good plan.

i agree with ezcompany. unless you can dedicate time every day and have the resources to add pods to the tank daily. i love my dracula goby definitely my favorite nano fish.

An ocellaris, with the limited space is my vote for a number of reasons;

a) they're narcissistic as hell, so you'll see them all the time
b) very hardy; my two have been with me six years at this point, suffering through my stupidity and experimention
c) won't bother corals--mine have hosted in a frogspawn for years
d) you can't beat the coloration
e) will eat anything
f) i haven't had one person walk past my nano tank without saying, "hey neat, a clown fish"

I also like the purple firefish, however, they are a bit reclusive.

Hope this helps.
It's not the big things which lead to failure in this hobby, it's the small things
