prepared food such as what?That is a lot of bioload for a 20g. May want to look into a larger system. Depends on hawkfish. May eat them, may not. Watch your nitrates, with that crew they could be high. Also, bluespot will need to be eating some prepared food to keep it going. Good luck!
Thank you! Ok! I will probably wait on the mandarin then and wait until I have a more established tank. I'm working on building a lid for my tank this week! Those all look like super cool fish!Welcome an hello, @alibarin !
First off, a mandarin in such a small tank will be tough unless it is truly eating prepared, you are preparedto buy lots of pods, or you raise pods. Either way it will require a vary mature tank due to their eating habits. May want to wait a long while before thinking of a mandarin.
A fire goby will do fine. However, make sure you have a lid. They like to jump.
As far as how many, it is really a matter of bioload and space needed. For instance, in a 36g, a pair of clowns will be great, clown gobies, smaller gobies, smaller blennies, one dottyback, chalk basslet, Chrysiptera sp of damsel fish.
If you have sand, a goby shrimp pairing.
Are you going to have corals or other inverts?
Oh wow I cant wait for..... Are u sure u spelled that right?By the way, we have some awesome people on R2R who are experts on particular types of fish, and they are kind enough to share their knowledge with us! ...and since we have the cool tag function on R2R (click here if you're not sure how to tag), I thought it would be cool to list some people you will know you can call on if you have a question about a specific type of fish.

(more names will be added as we go)
I think this is a well rounded list.I have 65 gallons total system (Red Sea Reefer 250). I am thinking of the following fish. Any issues?
Molly miller blenny
Pink stripe wrasse
2 Bangai cardinal
Yellow watchmen goby
1 Pygmy angelfish (either flameback, flame, lemon peel, cherub, or potter)
any concern?in which order the fish should be introduced? Thank you. I will be keeping mainly softies and LPS only.
This is a lot of fish and a heavy bioload for that size tank. I would consider making the list smaller...So I'm starting a 65 gallon and I want to have alot of the smaller blennies and gobies along with alot of inverts. Theres also going to be a 30 gallon fuge. Couple of questions before I get to the fish list. How many pistol shrimp can I keep? Theres going to be alot of rock on the sand bed for them to burrow around. What kind of fish/inverts can I put in the fuge? I was thinking maybe a dwarf lion and a fighting conch.... maybe something else could go in there. Well heres the fish list
Scopas tang (i know will get too big and have to be rehome)
Squaretail bristletooth tang
Hi fin red banded goby
Tasha white ray goby
Wheelers shrimp goby
Black barred convict goby
Wide barred shrimp goby
Black ice clown
Black snowflake clown
Blue green reef chromis
Panamic barnacle blenny
Mexican barnacle blenny
Pink streak wrasse
Black nox dwarf anglefish
Super tongan nassarius
Spiny star Astreas
Purple short spine pin cushion urchin
My absolute favorite fish is the Banggai cardinal fish. Next would be friedmani pseudochromis for smaller systems.. When making your fish list consider all levels of the water column, weather specific fish school or shoal, what their activity levels are, and tbat they have overlapping diets to make them easier to feed.Not sure if this is allowed or not, but I was hoping for some inspiration one What to put in my tank. I have a 55 gallon that will be fowlr for next several months, but eventually I’ll be keeping soft corals and LPS. I will for sure have a pair of clowns that I am moving from a smaller tank. With all that in mind, how would you fill the remainder of the 55 gallon?
