55g FOWLR

Hey ya'll looking at some possible stocking for my tank. Right now I've got sand and water! LOL These fish, if any, will be at least two months down the line.

I will be purchasing a coralife skimmer and an Odyssea t5ho quad fixture. I know these are both cheap items; but, if I find I love the salty side I will invest in better products.


The tank is 55g and I was thinking of doing these for possible stocking....

3 x Blue Reef Chromis
1 x Canary Blenny
2 x Firefish
2 x Ocellaris Clownfish
1 x Lemonpeel Angel

That is a total of nine fish.... Most of which are small. Is that too many? Also getting a small cuc.

Your stock list is fine as long as you space out the time between additions

That looks great!!!!!


I will def be taking my time adding stock to the tank. No rush really. I feel pretty comfortable with that list though unless someone thinks they may have another idea.


I cannot express enough how much I want a Niger Trigger... BUT tank space does not allow.*cries a river*

Im all for people keeping the fish they desire, but triggers can grow into some big ole monsters. That bein said, unless you are 100% without a doubt sure youre upgrading to a 125 or bigger in the future, stay away from the triggers. Granted they will do great in a 55 as youngins, but itll cause a ton of problems when they start packing on size

Lol!!!! Ive told my bf, "for a wedding gift I would like a huge tank... at least six feet." So at least he knows it is coming. One day I will have one. At least he supports a saltwater tank but none of the freshwater ones!
