This chart might help you. It doesn't list the sizes of the fish, but it might be a good starting off point for which fish are compatiable.

They are great reference guides but just remember the fish you are getting can't read them Each fish will have a certain personality to it. If an "asured" combo doesn't work, don't sweat it. It happens.

Cheers
Steve

Ya I'll find out this weekend what "with caution" really means. I'm about to put my Heni's in the main. We'll see what my angel and tang think of the chart.
It is helpful when planning though.

Its strictly a search database, but does have the criteria you are asking for.
I think the link will take you directly to the search page, if not, go to the main page, then forum, then there is a link to the database at the top.

This looked very promising, but I searched for fish < 2" and it came back with 3 results, all 15" fish!

Why not? Thats half the fun of this hobby! The knowledge you gain!
Yes, you're right, it is very fun, and I've already learned a lot from doing that...but having a quick summary based on size would be great.

Thanks for the chart, I've seen this in some of the books I have...now if I could only find one by size/aquarium or fish! I can imagine a lot of newbies asking this same question..ok so I have a 55g tank. What fish can I get if I don't want to swap them out when they get too big? What about a 20g? Give me all of the fish I can safely put in this "micro reef". Maybe a good side project for someone.

If I put a list together for my own aquarium (37g) I'll post it, and perhaps others can add their input.

strange...I did it and got one listing, a citron clown goby. Also, the more fields you use, the more exact your search will be.

Tried it again, I think I selected additional criteria that threw it off... when I search for all fish < 2 " it returns fish that are clearly > 2", which isn't right, but at least it includes fish that are < 2"...this could be a pretty good resource. Thanks again for the link!
