    First of all i want to thank all r2r community because all their participation hels a lot to the newcomers!

    I would like to know your opinion regarding what to add next. At this moment i have:

    - 1x royal gramma
    - 1x flame hawkfish
    - 1x flamebackangelfiwh

    in a. 34 g DT. I would like to add some other fish but I am not sure which of the next options could work better:

    1- 1 of 3 chromis viridis, this is a fish that I really like specially for the colour. I am not sure if 3 is more convenient to balance the fact that hawkfisf and dwarf angelfish are/could be semiagreesive, or is it pushing the stock too much...

    2- 1 pink flasher i am not sure about this wrasse in my tank what is your opinion; i ve read in some places that needs more room while in others it was suggested?

    Some alternative that i am thinking about it: meiachantus nigrolineatus (blackline fangblenny), yellowtail damselfish.


    Thanks for your advice!

    Wouldn't do a flame angel in a 34 honestly. They need at least a 4 foot tank. Preferably a 55. The flame hawkish and royal gramma would be fine though. Maybe look into some kind of goby for the other fish :)

    Welcome to Reef2Reef!

    I would probably do one Chromis in that tank, rather than three, and for the wrasse, take a look at possum wrasses (Wetmorella), which stay small and maneuver in and out of the rockwork. Maybe take a look at some of the Stonogobiops shrimpgobies, such as the high-fin red-banded goby, or a green-banded goby as well - again, they stay small, but are entertaining. (And if you go for the shrimpgoby, a compatible pistol shrimp, too!)

    In a 3rg, I agree with Bruce about only doing 1 chromis.

    I am a believer in flasher wrasses needing more space. Wetmorella and pink streak wrasses are great.

    The fang blenny is an excellent choice.

    Thanks a lot for your opinion. I will try then with one chromis and one wrasse of the suggested for sure. Considering this stock will it be possible to add someday a blenny too or a goby or that will be too much?

    Regarding the acanthops it was a recommendation of my lfs, i ve seen that normally it is recommended 50gal, although some person says that it can be also in 30gal... It has been in my tank for 6-7 months and seems fine, but if I see it stressing I will not hesitate to trade it.

    Best regards, and thanks once more

    Keep an eye on your nutrient levels - if you can feed your fish as much as they need, and your tank is keeping nitrate and phosphate where you need it, a smaller goby or blenny should be OK.
