Well I used to have a freshwater 10 gallon tank had decent amount fish everyone got along so my 10 gallon saltwater fish tank would probably just have a pair of clownfish and maybe a 2 inch wrasseIt really depends on the size, waste production and aggression of the fish and your means of nutrient export. What fish are you interested in?
So you think I should go with a percula clownfish and a ocellarus clownfish I don’t think I’ve seen a shrimp goby beforeSome groups I think can work in a 10-
Pink streaked or possum wrasse or azure damsel
Hifin or wheeler shrimp goby and Randal pistol shrimp
Pygmy geometric perchlet or firefish or yellow assessor or tailspot blenny, swissguard basslet (either rubre or swales) (you can probably pick 2 of these)
Total of 3-4 fish
You could do 4-5 or so small trimma, eviota gobies/green banded gobies/ or barnacle blennies. This would probably be less bioload than 3 of the above fish. I have a pink streaked wrasse in qt now and it poops a ton!!!
Clownfish are bigger, messier and more aggressive. So getting one Percula or ocellarus and a shrimp goby is probably a good bet. I don’t think a pair of clowns work well in a 10 gallon long term as the female gets larger and more aggressive.
I hear ya but i’m talking getting maybe a big enough male clownfish not to big and a small female that have been together for awhile now I should have explained better then I did sorry about thatNo no I think one clownfish, not two different species.
If you don’t know what a shrimp goby is then I suggest doing some research online on nano fish. Live aquaria’s Website is a good place to start - that way you will have a sense of what fish are good choices
