stocking questions

Ok, my 29 gal is set up... I have 2 true percula clowns and I am looking for some inverts and other fish to stock it..

I was thinking a goby of some sort and a pistol shrimp (maybe get to see that relationship between them) and also a cleaner shrimp

I really don't know what to get and what would really be compatible, I've been reading books and have some knowledge but im still rather new to the sw scene.

I have about 30lbs of LR in the tank, so its not too crowded with the rock (I don't really like that look) but anyways enough of that... so I have enough lr for hiding places and a few snails and like four blue legged hermit crabs in it already.

anyways, sorry for babbling,


55 gallon fw
-1 Pleco
-3 Yellow Labs (+ babies in maternity tank)
-1 Blue peacock
-1 Syno Cat

You have lots of options. I like the goby/pistol shrimp idea. Other options include a coral beauty, royal gramma, or purple firefish. A cleaner shrimp or two will also work just fine.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

do you plan on corals or fowlr. I have a similar setup and am trying to figure my last edition since I have corals and am topless I am a little limited. 2 O clowns, royal gramma is my plan for now.
