SaltWater Fish Compatiability ??? Experts help!

i have recently decided to upgrade my 29G sw tank into a 75g tank. In my old tank i have a snowflake eel(8 inch), blue ring angel(juv), royal gamma basslet, voilitan lion(4inch), 2- 3 striped damsels, maroon clownfish, 1 ex large common hermit, a baby salfin tang, and a large mono. What kind of fish can i mix with these guys in a 75 g tank? I want some nice hardy and colorful fish. thanks for you time

also how do maroon clowns mix with other maroon clowns? do they fight each other? i heard they are the most agressive clowns. What if i get like 5 clowns? will this lessen the fighting. also can i mix in a tomato clown with the maroon?

You had all those fish in a 29G tank???? How long have you had your tank set up? At least three of those fish are too large for even a 75G tank. So, to answer your question, you have no room for any more fish if you upgrade to a 75G and actually I think you should take at least a couple of those fish back to the LFS. If you are not upgrading, then you should absolutely take back the Angel, Lion, Maroon Clown, and Sailfin tang.

I agree with tripper...I can't believe that many fish were in a 29. Your 75 is stuffed. Where are these 5 clowns you are pondering supposed to fit in?

You're volitan will eat those maroons as well. But I have to agree with the others you don't have anymore room for fish.

I would agree, at least consider a 180 gallon, if not a 210...for long term success your 75 is way too small. 8O
