Ok thx. I am brand new to reef fish, i used to keep puffers and triggers for some time. I hae them with 5 green chromis. Btw, what other fish would go good with them? I am thinking of a yellow tang, watchman goby, royal gramma, etc. i have a 100 gallon so size isnt a big concern

All of those should be okay. I've got 2 clowns, yellow tang, starry blenny, bang cardinal and a longnose butterfly......all friendly.

Ok. Is it possible to have 3 tangs in a 100? Just a thought, but i was thinking a blue, convict, and a yellow. Would that work in a
100

I would only do a yellow in a 100, and that may be pushing it.

Look into tomini or kole tangs, theyre perfect for that size

I was just making sure because I don't think tangs breed in the aquarium lol. I have no experience raising clownfish fry but I've heard it's actually pretty difficult.
