So I was thinking of a school of blue/green chromis when I get my aquarium set up, but now I'm thinking about the spotted cardinalfish. It's so cute with its little polka dots! What size school should it be in and is it a good idea for a peaceful community tank?

Well, I'd say maybe 3-5? I don't even remember how large of a tank you are wanting. They are one of the possibilities I'm looking at as well for my small school for my 55.

I'm getting a 55. I want a blue cheek goby and they require 50 or more.

What is the consensus on plants like Maiden's Hair Plant (Chlorodesmis sp.) and Red Bush Algae (Ornamental gracilaria sp.)? I was thinking it would add some color and interest. Are these good things to use in a peaceful community?

What other schools are you thinking of? Maybe I can get some different ideas.

Chromis can only be kept in odd numbers just invade that's what you decide to go with. I'm definatly adding 3 or 5 when I get my 72 bowfront on wednesday
