I have two Redtail fire fish and when they get spooked they jump into my overflow. I would not reccomend them unless there is a top on the tank.
Other then that no more then two to a tank. I had four in my 75 gal. reef and two paired up and beat the other two up. I was able to get them out to another tank.


75 gal. Reef & 30 gal. Anemone Tanks.

I get paid for what I may have to do, Not for what I do!
