Finishing up my stocking list

Hi there. I think I am almost done with stocking my 29g. I have a teeny tiny pair of black oscellaris, a lawnmower blenny and a sea hare.

I will be picking up a goby, most likely a watchman very soon.

My question is can I add anything else? And if so, any suggestions? I have a bunch of corals so I need reef friendly only.

If it matters, I am most likely upgrading this 29g to my current 55g tank after I finish my 125 build for the cichlids. Not sure how much more fish wise those extra gallons would mean.

thanks everyone for your time

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

You are going to have a hard time keeping a sea hare alive.They need a constant source of food.

Good luck though.

I've heard that. He mowed through ALL my hair algae in a matter of days. I've been leaving my algae on the glass for him and my blenny to snack on.
Unfortunately you may be right though and I may end up bringing him back to the LFS. I've considered it.

Coral gobys are nice, they stay real small, and are interesting to watch. I have 2

I believe multiple clowns aren't a good idea. I'd love them but I've heard some not good stories. lol

If you keep more then two clowns in a small tank they are going to fight, in a larger tank you can get away with it sometimes, even then you have to monitor.

Unfortunately I can't tell you how much is too much for your system, I like to lean on the side of caution. It is better to be under stocked then over.

Yep thats why I initially thought 4 fish. Just to be safe. But now with the clowns being so darn tiny it's like my tank is empty.
