    Stocking tank by color :)

    Anyone know a site that has livestock by color?
    Am I wrong to want to shop by color?

    Looking for something in bright blue, easy care, reef safe. Not a damsel or anything too big, no bullies..

    Suggestions?

    No. It's genetic. You have a predisposition to shopping by colour based on your two X chromosomes.

    It'll be in a 108 gal tank, not sure about the sump/fuge dimensions yet.

    Dont know if it fall's under bright blue but you could go with a school of chromis depending on the light they are blue or green. As well there is the atlantic blue tang which has a very nice blue color as it matures.

    What about a Blue Gudgeon Dartfish?? There a peacfull fish that would be a good size for ur tank. Mind you, you'll need a sandbed of atleast 3" as they sometimes burrow.
