Can I put a small one in my 60g cube? I currently only have a small clownfish pair.

I also only planning on having 4 fish total.

I'm posting a pic of my clowns because everyone seems to like looking at pics.

I wouldn't. Unless of course your thinking of upgrading. They get about 8 inches or larger and do swim quite a bit. Tank looks great though! Gl!

I just gave my fox face back to my fish guy because he was too big for my 54g. They grow rather quickly. We bought him at 3 inches or so, maybe a bit smaller, and he was at least 6 inches and fairly thick within 18 months. Should have held onto him, b/c 3 weeks later we upgraded to a 180g...

Good luck

Paula

What are the tank dimensions? I have a 66 gallon thats 38x21.5x26 and i am seriously considering one.

Also, why only 4 fish? Understocking is great, but the tank might be a bit bland

It's 24x24x24.

I just want to make sure the tank isn't overcrowded.

Oh, yeah then no. 24" isnt enough

Ha, well you have quite a bit more room just in case you want 5..maybe 6 fish!
