Dottybacks can be pretty aggressive too. I think it is the Orchid, however, that is a bit more peaceful. I would guess that you still may see a little bit of aggression, not sure though.

I love Dottybacks, as their color is just so amazing, I had a Diadem in my old 55g that was so awesome!

I think a nice Goby would be suitable for your aquarium.

I love these Dottybacks, but in my opinion I wouldn't keep them with more peaceful fish, as they are fairly aggressive. A good substitute for the Bicolor Dottyback could be a Royal Gramma. Check them out, their coloring is very similar and I believe that are a little bit more peaceful.

i love the royals, but have shyed away from thinking about keeping them as i have heard they can be very picky eaters.

Sorry for the multiple posts! I forgot to add that I had issues in my old 34g when I attempted to add a Royal Gramma to the tank with the Sixline Wrasse. I think others have had both in the same tank without issue, however. I guess it all goes back to what works for one person, may not work for the other.

Firefish are fantastic in my opinion. Just don't keep them with aggressive fish, as they are peaceful.

I personally wouldn't recommend it.

Have you checked out Bangaii Cardinalfish?

Yep, they don't swim a whole lot, but they are nice looking!

Sorry, I probably made things confusing with all my "advice", lol. It's always tough for me, as I don't want to steer someone in the wrong direction......
