started a new 29 g salt water tank

Just started a 29 gallon tank. Cycled it with a blue yellow tailed damsel.
Just added a spotted hawkfish also. I was wandering how many fish i could fit in there, and wanted some opinions on what to add next.

Well...tell us about your tank. How much sand, LR, and any other filtration. How long has it been set up? What are your parameters.

This calculator will help http://www.aquariumadvice.com/calcs2...e=fishcapacity

Remember that when planning/calculating fish capacity in inches that you use the size the fishes will be when fully grown.

The type of fish will depend a little on the type of tank. Is it a FO, FOWLR or a reef?

its been set up about a month, the filter is processing about 120 gallons of water every hour. No LR in this one plan on getting a bigger tank for that

Send a message via Yahoo to michealprater
You may be able to add another small fish, then you will be maxed.
