Want to purchase more inhabitants

So far I have 2 percula clownfish in my tank. This sunday they will have been living in my tank for 2 weeks. The tank is around 6 weeks old and has completely cycled. I would like to purchase some more fish or inverts this weekend, what are good hardy fish that will do well in my aquarium with my reef and clowns? Should I keep the tank population even so no one gangs up?

I also have discovered a small amount of large aptasia in my tank, I am going to kill it with a solution but I think one chunk of my live rock has babies all over it. Should I buy peppermint shrimp to destroy this nusance? If so how many do i purchase for my tank?


My tanks-
newly set up 75 gal SW, 30 lbs of fiji lr, 30lbs of lace rock, 90 lbs of course/fine argonite sand, rena canister filter, 48" 4x65 watt pc, red sea turbo berlin skimmer.
Inhabitants- 2 percula clown fish, 1 muchroom coral, 2 leather corals, and 2 mystery corals.

u could easily house 3-4 shrimp.

as for tank mates i'd look at a dwarf angel, some gobies, pseudochromis, etc..!

good luck and keep us posted...!

You cna add fish and inverts at the same time... Inverts do not add to the bio load so adding them is fine and they will hepl clean the tank.
