    Designer clowns? Seahorses? Creepy crawlies? Other suggestions? [​IMG]

    Unicorns and mermaids!!!

    Sea horses and designer clowns would probably be big sellers.

    Elf on the Shelf in scuba mask!

    On a serious note what about a rotating selection of rarer species....like one month do all exotic clowns, then next month do rare wrasses, etc., etc.

    Seahorses would be cool but is there enough demand. Rare fish and inverts of any kind.

    I'd say designer clowns for sure. You could also do an all ORA fish selection which could include clowns

    What about various non photosynthetic coral species? That would possibly work well with the cuttlefish / sea horse / other atypical livestock. You could feed the coral heavy and the other animals would thrive.

    You just might need higher flow in a few of the tanks that the motile creatures wouldn't like.

    I moved the wrasse 75g over and it backs up to the other holding system.

    Thanks for all of the ideas! Since these holding systems are really meant for temporary displays it has to be something that sells so the critters don't have to spend a long time in these systems. If it is fish than I would like the ability to medicate in the future if needed so it rules out a lot of inverts or corals. I think designer clowns are a no brainer. Maybe a mix and if i need to medicate I can move the inverts out temporarily.

    I do like the wrasses idea!

    Dang...
    I was just about to say put rare/extra fantastic/feature corals in there with inverts, fancy clowns, blennies, etc. Corals that you really want to highlite, so they don't get lost in the flat. And maybe the fish that are hard to see and/or catch.

    I'd love to see additional captive bred fish showcased. There are some awesome gobies and blennies that would be perfect for nano tanks.
