i bet there is lots of action in that tank eh! My 55 has 5 fish and sometimes you can only see 1 if the others are in the rock. I'd love to add like 5 more to fill up the empty water space but no way could my system deal with it.

Its always going to be based on opinion. I like to keep my prison population down. Clown fish have been known to incite minor riots.

Most of the fish that are in the tank are small fish with the exception of the tang and angel. I have a pretty good setup for the tank, I have 3 filters, 2 of which are bio wheels and 1 with a slimmer on it and I have a new skimmer being delivered next week. The lighting system is really good. I have a T5 system with daylights moonlights and normal lights on it all set up on an automatic timer. The one madrine that I have in the tank has been in it since day one and is doing great. He does have plenty of pods to eat and occasionally eats frozen food.

Yes a tommy tang they said it shouldn't get to big. But I'm planning on upgrading my tank in a year or so, so if by that time if it has grown larger than excepted I will already have a larger setup.
