In a 55g tank, I'd invest in more like 5 or 6 hermits for now. Try a cleaner shrimp or two also. Got any snails? Clean up crews can work great in tanks that the fish don't eat them. Might wanna read up on that wrasse first though. Not sure what that is since I couldn't find it when Googling. There are wrasses that will eat snails, crabs, and shrimp.

How old is this tank and how much live rock in it?

I have one cleaner shrimp, getting another soon.

I have about 6-10 snails.

Tank is about 5 years old, So very established, but as i said in a recent post, the whole tank got moved about 2-3 months ago, Since then been doing fine.

And i have about 50kg of live rock, So alot of it.

And im pretty sure the zebra fish is a "Zebra Barred Dartfish " because i did a little research.

Sorry, I thought you said it was a zebra wrasse earlier. Dartfish are OK with the reef and inverts. Seen him yet?
