What about a Kole Yellow Eye Tang for my list? I take it I would have to take two fish off and add it last.
Sorry here's the list
Serpent star? livestock -Tailspot, Pederson, Clownfish, neon cleaner Goby, and Pike Blenny. Safe for our tiny guys or not?
Anyone here try having two nasos in the same tank (blonde Naso) ... been thinking about it for a long time..
75g is about the smallest you could do a kole tang in, it's borderline.
A banded serpent star is fine.
Unless you added them simultaneously and as very young fish, I wouldn't recommend it.
Yeah I know but I can’t accept it heheh
Let me know what you guys think of the stocking for my new 90g, 4x18x2.
1 Yellow Coris Wrasse
1 Blue Star Leopard Wrasse
1 Yellow Eye Kole Tang
2 Maine Mocha Ocellaris Clowns
1 Starry Blenny
3 Carberryi Anthias
2 Banggai Cardinalfish
1 Diamond Watchman Goby
Is it sounding overstocked or like some fish would be incompatible with each other or the tank size?
Looks good to me
That list should work well.
This is so awesome! I just realized yesterday how limited the knowledge at my LFS really is. I started up a 45 gal system at my parents house to get my mom into the hobby and she currently has 3 chromis and a little Ocellaris. What are some other fun coral friendly friends that would bring some more color?
My current tank is the same size, I just got my new tank so eventually will be transferring them over. Some fish great for that size tank would be most blennies and gobies, most chromis and damsels, firefish, pajama cardinalfish, banggai cardinals, pygmy Wrasse, royal gramma, and of course even more!
I had heard that damsels were very aggressive, is this true?
Yes very true
Yes, they can be quite aggressive. Some such as the yellow tailed damsels are known to be less aggressive. Keep in mind a clownfish likely can hold its own, they are actually also a species of damsel. Chromis are damsels as well, just a more peaceful kind.
Anyone forsee any issues QTing a Copperband Butterfly with a Matted Filefish in a 20g H?
Longnose or flame hawkfish, yellow assessor, midas blenny, royal gramma, sunburst anthias, firefish, and chalk bass would work.
Most species are, but there are a few that do great in a community reef. Kupang, arnazea, springeri, talbots, and rolandi are some species that come to mind.
Some species this is not true.
No problems there.
Started a stocking list for our new 55 gal
Normal dimensions of 48”x13”x20”
Starting as a FOWLR but have full plans of becoming a reef once the tank is more established and matured.
I know for sure we will be getting 2 clowns for my daughter, gotta have Nemo!
The wife wants a paired pistol shrimp and watchman goby
I want an engineer goby!
Will these all work well in a 55? I’ve read engineers do better in a pair?
And we really love the McCoskers wrasse
Also, anyone have any other recommendations for us!
That list should be fine.
Engineer gobies get pretty big, so I would recommend sticking with only one in a 55g.
Apart from clean up crew, would you have any other recommendations that would fit?
