Hello,

I've a 100Gallon Acro tank and want to add some fishes for more pollution

Actual stock list :
1 Paracanthurus Hepatus
1 Zebrasoma Flavescens
2 Amphiprion Ocellaris
1 Pseudocheilinus Hexataenia
1 Halichoeres Chrysus
1 Chrysiptera Springeri
1 Acreichthys Tomentosus

I maybe want to add 5 Anthias squamipinnis and 4 Chromis.
Is it okay for my tank ? Any tips for this fishes ?

Thanks for your help :)

Anthias and chromis both like to be fed 3x a day but can acclimate to 1-2. What are your tank dimensions? None of those will likely shoal much in a tank your size and without being in very large numbers. They may swim nearby each other occasionally, but not all that often in my experience. Also with your other stocking you'd be getting to a pretty large bioload

Also following. Almost similar setup. And want to add some schooling fish.

What I have read on here is that Chromis will eventually kill each other after a period of time. So I may be taking them off the list.

Interestingly enough, the last 2 days after much internal conflict my Yellow Tang, Kole tang and Bristletooth are now “schooling” together, along with a wrasse that follows. I do not know the rationale, nor do I think it is a permanent thing. But odd and fun to see

My tank is a classic 48"x24"x22" .
I'm feeding 3-6times per day and i've 0 No3 0 Po4, i need to put a lot of KNo3 solution to bring up my nitrates so i'm looking for a way to increase my bioload :)


So you think it's maybe better 1 bigger group than 2 littler groups ?

Thanks a lot
