Filtration: 50lbs LR.com, 60lbs sand

Swimmers: 2 O. Clowns, Yellow Watchman, Firefish, Yellow Tang, Dottyback.

Dont know if they`ll attack but just keep them separated by a couple inches. That`s all I`ve got mine separated by. Have a good day

Just a few inches are ok. Give the yellows and stars a bit more room. In my experience, they spread faster.
