hey there, i have a fairly new saltwater setup, the whole thing has been up and running for about 9 or 10 months, with one move of house along the way.
in it i had a bubble tip anemone, 5 heads of frogspawn, a few frags of zoas and a few little pieces here and there.
the livestock was 4 damsels (domino, blue, yellowtail and 4 stripe) and one little fish who is a mystery. also snails and hermits
the yellow tail disappeared about 2 monhs ago. assume he was eaten by the hermit crabs.
so i went to get a mated pair of true percs, and a 6 line wrasse, and was given an engineer goby as a bonus. he's about 6 inches.
My question is are they all going to be ok in the 40 breeder i have? i was planning on getting rid of the damsels, but due to the storms, the store was closed when i wanted to take them in. Now, they are all getting along pretty well. Domino hosts the BTA and the clowns host the other end of the tank. the wrasse seems to be good buddies with the clowns, and periodically taunts the domino into chasing him into the clown territory for a whipping.
otherwise they seem fine. Should i take the damsels in? the clowns and wrasse are bigger than the damsels, and with the wrasse having a pair of protectors, i think he should be fine.. Is it too many fish?
the plan is to upgrade to either an 85 or a 125 in about 5 months, so the goby should have no problems with growing or being cramped...
