What you all think

WEll i have my QT up and running and i am deciding over what new fish to get. I have right now a 75 gallon with a Yellow Tang, Clarki Clown, and yellow tail damsel.

I was thinking of either.
- Pajama cardinal
-Clown Goby
- Fire Fish Goby (Purple)
- Banggai Cardinal


I want to get some more CUC as well. No snails my hermits kill them. I have right now

2 Cleaner shrimp
Couple of red scarlet hermits
2 Blue Legged Hermits
I use to have 3 emerald crabs but i think the died cuz i havent seen them in a while.

Should i get some more Hermits or different type of Shrimp?

Yeah, go with the green or yellow goby like Captain said. Those fish are way cool. I think maybe you should get some peppermint shrimp. Those are pretty cool. Maybe try a sea star of some sort?

Does anyone else think the damsel might pick on the fish in that list?

The yellow tail is the nicer of the bunch and from what others have told me tend to be like most bullies.. More peaceful when alone and get their macho on when they are in groups. I don't think he'd give the goby a second look. The cardinals body is so different he may slide by too

I see. I've stayed away from damsels over the past few years because of their reputation so don't have any personal experience. Thanks for clarifying.

Same here, just going by what others in the hobby have passed on. It's hard too, cause they have some of the nicest coloring going too

Add more cardinals to the mix, at least 3. They are a schooling fish and like to be in groups. You could add some nassarius as I doubt the hermits would go after them during the half-hour or so they are above the sand.
