OK. I have a 20 gallon reef tank and I want to know how many fish I can put in it. I just plan to put blue damsels, and I want to put as much as I possibly can. How much blue damsels can I put in? If I add an extra CPR refugium, will that allow me to add one more damsel? Thanks to anyone who can reply to topic!

Are their also other species of fish that are smaller, and yet I can add more of their kind? e.g. lets say chromis are about 1 inch max size, can I put 8 chromis rather than les say 5 damsels?

Check out this link for nano tank possibilities. You can usually figure bioload for fish as 1 inch of adult fish for every 5 gallons of tank size(not including tails)

Remember to calculate the capacity by looking at the adult size of the fish, not the size you buy them at. 2 Damsels would be about it for a 20g.

We have no motive to sell fish, you may find it a bit more conservative.
