I would like some more fish!

What do you think would go well with my clan?

75 gal
2 clown fish (tank raises)
1 blue green chromis
1 lawn mower blenny (>.<)
1 6 line wrasse
1 royal gamma
2 cleaner shrimp
1 snail (not sure what kind)
2 emerald crab
A hand full of hermit crabs

I would like to have a reef at some point but not untill the diatom bloom goes away.

how long has your tank been setup for? i would say that the stock is pretty good for the first few months and i would slowly add a fish a month. what types of fish are you looking at keeping?

Gti_leo: It is a fairly new tank. We got lucky with the cycle. Month old including the cycle. We got lucky with the live rock... Been testing everyday had a mini ammonia spike with out fish then it evened out to 0, 0, 5-10 pH of 8.2 temp 74.3*F

I am also a microbiology student and I cultured my bacteria to see the ins and outs of what I have growing and the amounts. HAHA AWSOME! I know!! =^_^=

Critters are doing well. One of the shrimp has molted ^_^

I do not think I want to add anything this month. If I do I want to beef up my CUC. I would just like to get a running list of things to watch out for in terms of fish. The stores around here usally re-stock on Friday. If they get something in I rather just pick them up in the bag they came in. Insted of them putting them in there tank and then rebagging them (ect.)

I really want a Tang but I know my tank is too small for one. I want something larger than the fish I have now. Something that would swim around the whole tank. the six line swims around and is neat to look at but it usally swims around in the rock

Mine has its HUGE cave and pops out when it is time to eat. Then it chills out near or in the cave.

How about another wrasse or maybe a midas blenny? My midas was very active when I had him plus very colorful.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I was thinking about a fariy wrasse or maybe some anthias(from what I read 2 or 3 because they feel safe in schools). I don't know about another blenny >.< the lawnmower is a handful as it is its my cat/dog/fish of the tank. Someone told me to check out a yellow eye tang and another type but I can not remember.

They also said a lot of the color can come from corals. ^_^ need to start planning that out too.

True, a kole tang or a bristletooth tang can go in a 75g. Anthias's can get pretty big though, I have 2 squarebacks in my 125g and they are pretty big already. lol
