Which one first?

Hi all, I would like to ask whether which fish should I place 1st, 2nd, 3rd.... in order to minimum the amount of fighting. Hmm, here goes, a maroon clown, a tomato clown ( I wonder if maroon and tomato could be housed together in a tank ), electric blue damsel, yellow tang, scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp, normal snail, multicolour angelfish, bicolour angelfish. And how many fishes should I introduce at a time?

well to answer part of your question the clowns will not go together unless you have a gigantic tank. and you are probably asking for trouble by putting maroon clown, tang, and damsle all together. they can all be very aggressive!


Figuring out how to keep my fish healthy is like the pethagorean theorem; there is no solution.

Tank size is necessary to answer this question any further than what Steve mentioned.

I had 2 tom clowns and 2 4 stripe damsels together in a 20 gal without a problem. When I added 2 percula clowns the tom clowns promptly killed them. Tomatos will only live with other toms and they are very aggressive. I have since gotten rid of them and gotten some sabae clowns which are much better community fish.
