15 tall nano reef

So I`m starting a 15 gallon tall nano reef and I was wondering if I could have yellow watchman goby, 1 firefish, and either a White Banded Possum Wrasse or maybe a clown fish as the complete stock of fish.

I'd say yes to the goby and firefish. I would be careful adding anything else. If it were me, I'd do a goby and a clownfish, or just 2 clowns. 2 clowns is pushing it... But if you keep up on water changes it may be okay. Lower bioload the better, ecspecislly in a nano tank.

IMO id do them all if you got about 20-25 lbs lr and good filtration and a skimmer.. I have A longnose hawkfish, clownfish , bangai cardinal , algae blenny, Pygmy angel, and a fire shrimp in a 20 long with 5lbs of lr (upgrading to 72 bowfront) and a hob filter my hob skimmer broke a while back tank has been fine..

Wow, your tank sounds awesome. HawkFish are such cool fish. I might be getting a 20 gallon tall if I can find the floor space for it, and I`m definitively running a skimmer. I`ll also probably buy 15-30 pounds of live rock with live sand, with a filter running. I really want this tank to go swimmingly so I`m trying not to skimp out on anything, but my wallets not to happy.

Ya it used to be nice but I left it for a week and I got hair algae red and green. So when I could took the rock out and put it in some water for a bit till I got a 72 bowfront. Just I have a problem between the clown and angel but that's it

I honestly wouldn't do many fish! Put a ton of coral and wait till you can upgrade to a bigger tank to start getting a lot of fish. Fish4ever has a lot of fish in his tank and his stocking is definitely controversial. To each their own, but if it were me, I'd stick to a few nano fish. 2 clowns would be your best bet to me!

But think the inch per gallon rule. The Pygmy wrasse is a very cool but shy fish so having one clown and 2 gobies he'd more likely to be out

But do what YOU want we're here to give opinions not make your decisions.

I`m really not planning on over stocking. I think I`m going with 3 nano fish max on the 15, and even that's gonna be a at least a year away. I`m going to let my tank cycle and probably add my first fish in July. I think a firefish and a yellow watcherman goby would be fine. If I had any other fish, it might be the Tanaka's Pygmy Wrasse, but only if my tank is settled. I love clownfish, but it seems to me that every tank has one. I`m also gonna add some of my invertebrates first, along with some coral.
