I have a empty 55g and I am not sure what I want to put in it. I want some snails and shrimps a couple clowns and some chromis but besides that I have no idea.
The way I reasoned with myself is swimming room. If a minimum tank size for a kole tang is 70 gallons, that (well, a 75 gallon) is going to be the same length as a 55 (48") unless it is not a standard shape.
The other tangs want a lot of swimming room and wouldn't bode well in 48" of swimming room.
This is just from what I read. Going from the ocean to any tank has to seem like a drag for the fish. :P
I decided I'm going to try a pair of the yellowstriped maroon clownfish. Guess I will see what happens.
