I have a young (1 inch) tomato clownfish, a large Condy anemone (which do not talk to each other
) a Mother Sailfin Dragonet, (see photo)
and I have a 40 gal DSB
tank. I have a few single species of soft coral polyps on different live rock. The main focus in my tank right now is a fast-growing Caulerpa of some type and a few sarcoglossans that eat it (not fast enough IMO
). We have no shrimps or crabs, only astrea and jumbo turbo snails.
My question is what do you guys suggest as a new tankmate to the clown and dragonet? My husband is thinking a Yellow Tang because we have tons of the caulerpa one could happily nibble on his spare time.
I was at first thinking of a pair of dwarf seahorses, (to hang about in the caulerpa), but I read somewhere that live adult brineshrimp (our Dragonet's staple diet) may be too large for them.
I'd like to hear what any of you have successfully housed with these 2 species (or similar), but we are leaning toward a mid-tank ranged fish, not one that would be in the Dragonet's way, and one that is big enough/smart enough not to get eaten by the anemone.
Thanks guys for your suggestions!
