15 gallon fish choice

i have delagated for 3 months ever since i have set up my tank, its been cycles for 5 weeks. about what fish to get

what are your suggestions?

the reason i am not saying anything about fish i have chosen is i do not want any of you to be swayed by that choice.

express what you feel is best.

Really depends what you want to do. Do you plan on putting together a nan-reef? FO, FOWLR? Smaller tanks are somewhat limited in what you can keep, and the amount. For suggestions there is always the stand-by of the perc clown. You might also like a royal gramma or something like a yellow watchman goby. Do you have LR in there? good luck...Lando

i want a nano reef bad, but the price of the light i need is too great, (i plan on gettign a bigger tank someday, that will be a reef) so i do not watn to spend alot of money on this tank.

it will be a FOWLR, i am in contact with a guy who will get me about 20 lbs. (not sure which kind of live rock most likely fiji)

if i got a yellow watchmen goby what else could i get with it, chromis, damsels, clowns

any of those fish will be fine with a yellow watchman. You will have LR so it will keep it happy. If you want a laugh, get a pistol shrimp to go with your yellow watchman. They have a pretty comical relationship.

Great choice, I think you will be happy with it. You may also want to consider a Royal Gramma. Very nice personality and adds some nice color to the tank.

I think you could get by just fine with a clown, a goby and a royal gramma. That would give you a nice mix of fish with some great color.

well in a 15 gal tank that is about 3 in of fish. i would say that the yellow and the shrimp and then add the 2 clowns. but you are going to have to watch your levels and keep up on the water changes.
