See if anyone else has any experience with the PJs, but for me, yeah just floaters.

I may not be into just floating fish. I kinda wnated to see them zip around and such.
I guess maybe I'll go with another pair of clowns then? And maybe just 2 of the pj's?

Oh I hate being indecisive.lol But glad I know now.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Two pair of clowns in one tank, I thought that was hard to do.
As far as the PJ I started with one, and he kinda just floated in the back, so I thought add another, well the first wanted nothing to do with the second even though he tried to get close.... so I added a third.....well you get the point, I didn't go for a fourth. they are together sometimes, but more often not.

I've heard in this thread I believe that as long as I introduce them at the same time and watch which ones I mix i should be ok. I was thinking regular percs or clarkii ones. I will be transferring my B&W'w to a 55 soon so that would be a good time to do it.

I think I will pass on the pj's. too many people say they just float. lol

I just got a pair of clarkiis in a tiny setup from craigslist. well it was a 10G setup, but I put them in a 20G along with the LR I got from the 10G setup. so far its been 24hours, ammonia is still 0, and they're eating.. so I hope all goes well. Getting a piece or two of LR on Friday from my LFS, would like to build up to a good amount in there. I was told the pair were clearing off rocks from the original owner. So maybe once they get comfortable some breeding?

5 might be a bit too muh IMO, try 3 at first and unless you see some fighting leave it at that. Pajamas seem like small fish but when they grow they're pretty hefty.

If you really want a tang I say go 6ft, 90Gs are just tall 4 footers, I'm personally not a fan of tall tanks though. And this would be something I would play it safe on, I usually would push the boundaries but not on this

Edit: I see you pretty much changed your mind, maybe try no centerpiece, just several single interesting fish. This would be a good tank for a flasher wrasse

Do you think just one PJ would be lonely? I do find them interesting to look at but I'm not digging the just float and stare at ya thing. lol i wouldn't wanna waste my valuable fish real estate on alot of them.

I could and DO sit on a chair in front of my tank and stare at the clowns. I'm just fascinated by them for whatever reason. And I never even saw the nemo movie.

I have one of the kitchen chairs in front of the 38G. The other two tanks are close enough to the kitchen table that I can sit there and watch them. Then there are tiny flashlights scattered around for nighttime spying.
