We've had a pair of Yellowtail Damsels since we completed our cycle in our 29 GAL
. We've got approx 40 lbs of LR
in the tank, and live sand substrate. (not that this all matters, right now ... but it will shortly when I start asking some other ?'s lol)
So, we've got the 2 yellow tail damsels, and a single Blue/Green Reef Chromis (courtesy of a previous fish we had in the tank, as he bullied the other one to death, before realizing his fate is now in our sump.)
Today, we decided we wanted to add just a bit of color to our tank, and since our levels have been excellent
, we decided on 2 clowns and a chocolate chip star. So here's my questions:
1. Is it okay to keep clowns (percula) of the same size with the yellow-tails?
2. Do chocolate chip stars damage corals (once we get some), and if so, would we be better off moving him to our sump / refugium once we do start adding corals?
3. What tank-mates would you recommend if we are able to keep our damsels and clowns together ... we're looking for diversity, and color mainly ... and fish that will coincide well together later on, as we slowly gear up to transition to a 60-gallon setup.
Thanks in advance for any help and advice!
