Got a new fish

My BF got me a new fish for my b-day - a lawnmover blennie - they're so cute! My concern is that the tank (165g) has 2 chromis in it and now the blennie. This weekend my clown and a yellowtail damsel are moving into the tank. The blennie was a surprise - that I won't see for 2 weeks (college student who is 2 hours away from home).
Is this too much fish to add at once?
The tank has been running since the very being of March and is totally cycled - levels are at zero. It has 196# of LR and 100 or 120# of LS.

I think, in such a large tank, you will probably be OK. You may see a small ammonia/nitrite spike, but shouldn't be anything serious and should pass quickly. Unless I'm mistaken, your blennie will appreciate lots of vegetable matter in his diet. At any rate, I would test the water every day just to be safe.

Okay, thanks, Logan. I just get really nervous; I didn't want to add too many too quickly.

This won't be a problem I have several rabbits (of the terrestrial persuasion) that probably won't mind sharing a portion of their salad. What are some good veggies? I've read romaine and red-leaf lettuce (no iceberg), spinach, and broccoli. Are parsley and kale okay, too?

Kale is probably OK, but I don't know about the parsley. You might want to offer some nori or some of the seaweed/algae sheets that are available at the LFS.

yeah nori works really well for the herbavores. but don't get it from the LFS go to a health food store you can get 12 huge sheets for like 5 bucks or you could go to your LFS and get 5 small sheets for like 4 bucks. your choice.

I can verfiy the nori from that health food store is great....

here is the description

Quote:
Dried nori, not roasted. Natural color is a dark purple or deep green. Raw Lavar Nori sheets are paper thin, ideal for wrapping fresh fruits, vegetables. Seaweed's are high in trace minerals not found in land food. A difficult item for many to find raw.
