Oh ok... Thanks afilter. I'll just take it easy then

I have just a few questions left to ask

Which peaceful fishes do you think should i add to the 30G when it's all done and running along with my percular clowns (if the tang and gobi are gone)?

About cleaning crew, i do you have any specific species and numbers for each species that would benefit my tank the most?

Thank you guys so much. Especially afilter, who has been helping me sooooooo much

Again check out this link:

Any of these fish would be compatible with your setup and your clowns(1-2 maybe 3 tops). This is assuming you get rid of the YT and scooter. Not to be too harsh, but frankly if you do not get rid of them I will be suprised if they are still alive 3 months from now.

As for specific selections some of my favorites in addition to the percs which you already have include:

firefish:

green clown goby:

yellow watchman goby:

You could probaly even get away with 1 dwarf angel such as a coral beauty:

If you go with an angel though no other fish beside the percs. Really it comes down to personal preference on what you like. Just do not over do it or you and your fish will pay the price. I speak from experience as somone who has sent my share of fish to the great reef in the sky.

As for other inverts to look at:

10-15 more blue or red leg hermits
10-15 snails variety is fine avoid nasarious unless you have a sand substrate.
pepermint shrimp
cleaner shrimp
emerald crab
serpeant star

Your tank would look pretty full with these. The key to this hobby is take it slow. Read and learn as much as you can before making an addition. The worst think you can do is thry to fill up your tank right away because you will be headed for a crash. A new set-up really is not considered mature until it is 6-12 months old.

Good luck,

Serpeant star? Doesn't it eat fishes? Is there a specie of starfish that doesn't eat fishes and doesn't hurt corals? (a guy at LFS said starfishes would eat corals when i asked to buy one)

I'll get more hermits and snails. About the peppermint shrimp, can i buy a pistol shrimp instead?

Thanks afilter, u've been amazing

Not a problem, happy to help and hopefully save someone from my mistakes.

Guessing you were trying to buy a choc chip star or common star which are not reef safe. Many other start such as brittle (get kind of big which is why I did not recommend) and some serpeants are reef safe and will not bother corals or anenome. A red/orange linkia is anoterh goos one, but your tank really should be much older.

Never had a pisto;, but is that is what you like I am not aware of any issues, and I believe they stay small. I think they do best in a sand substrate. They may even be the ones that form a relationship with the watchman goby which is cool. Check me on that.

Loke I said before it comes down to personal preference and doing a bit of research before you buy.

Wow linkias look so awesome. I've look into buying one once my tank is stable

Thank you so much for spending time helping me. I think you've out-answereded me. I don't have any more questions right now. I'll ask some more specific questions later on when i am about to buy any addition to the tank.

Once again THANK YOU SO MUCH afilter
