I have two clowns and a midas blenny in my 65 gallon, so it feels quite empty. lol I know what you mean, I have a buddy whose tank is beautiful with all this activity, but it is grossly overstocked. He has had a few losses but just says it's stress and won't listen to anyone else.

Any suggestions on larger cool fish like tang type cool? I know a tang needs the 6 foot tank so he's out. But theres gotta be fish i can keep in a 55 or 75 that aren't blennies, gobies, chromis or damsels. lol

Yeah, I have the same issues, I love tangs but not enough space. I am getting a flame hawkfish and a coral beauty dwarf angel soon. Take a look at the dwarf angels, I like the flame dwarfs and bi colors better then the corals but that is the one my wife wants. I have to let her pick atleast one fish, lol.

Anglers are AWESOME fish and are reef safe, but it could eat your poor clowns. lol They will eat anything that can fit in their mouth.

I'm more about the corals than the fish. they outnumber my fish like 4 to 1. lol I don't wanna take any chances with the corals. But after getting my clowns I'm kinda jonesing for more fish activity. Silly blenny does nothing but sit around and stare at me, the goby I'm gonna get is the same story.

such decisions life is tough hehe
