Fish2Fish Can't we all get along??

I have a Cinnamon Clown and a purple pseudochromis, When I added a wrasse the purple guy had it for dinner, I know the cinnamon I can't add any thing else or it will get aggressive, I need to add something reef safe and cinn/pseudo safe lol any suggestions? Thanks

With a 55 a yellow tang would be a good addition. And he will be the boss of the tank unless someone in the tank wants to get stabbed. They are beautiful and inexpensive. Except for a kole tang your tank would not house any other tangs. It would be too small.

2 tangs would be too much in a 55 IMO

When I had my 55 I had both BUT I think that I was very lucky that there was no agression problems. I was a rookie at the time and did not have AA to guide me. If I knew what I know now I would not have 2 tangs in a 55. They are both swimming happily with a sailfin in my 125 reef. just my experience
