Hi all, I'm finally almost done moving my reef into my new red sea 170. Right now I have 2 clowns and 2 cromies which were in my Nuvo 40... I kinda want a Midas Blenny and a Jawfish.. I have a semi deep sandbed..

I want fish that can keep the tank nice and clean/get along

So in terms of keeping clean get a Ctenochaetus tang and a yellow spot foxface for algae. And a wrasse like a yellow wrasse, Melanarus, 6 line or (not as advisable) a springers damsel for pest control. Aiptasia eating filefish have a good personality and may eat aiptasia and copperband butterfly’s can do the same but sometimes will only eat aiptasia and have to weaned onto prepared foods.

I believe my tank is too small for a tang

My advice is getting fish you like and keeping aquarium clean using nopox and even flux if it goes too out of hand. Nothing keeps the aquarium cleaner than these additives.

Fish barely does anything with "keeping clean"
