Next fish?

We have a baby regal/hippo tang and he's going to need a tank mate soon. We would like to get a clown of some flavor if there is one that will cohabitate... not just with the tang but other fairly passive fish down the road. Are there any clowns that would fit the bill?

FO tank btw.

If no, then any other suggestions would be welcome.

False pers (ocellaris) and pink skunk clowns would fit the bill on the more peaceful side of things. I would suggest getting a pair if possible. They are much more active and will adjust better than a sole fish.

Is this for the 75 gal?

Cheers
Steve

Well, False Perculas are good, as long as they are pairs, otherwise they will be picked on. Introduce them at the same time. Another good fish might be a yellow tang and maybe 3 green chromis. If you still feel incomplete, I would add a flame angel. I belive this to be a great stocking list, and i think that they are all compatible but you should check and research them. Check out wetwebmedia.com and e-mail me on whatever fish you decide on. E-mail me at my forum name at yahoo.com. Have fun! I'm still saving!

Going to the lfs is getting expensive 8O . We ended up getting a False Perculas (Ocellaris) pair, 5 small Green Chromis, a new pump for the wet/dry and a protien skimmer.

All good advice, except for the Yellow Tang part. One tang is a 75 is penty. Adding another could cause overstocking problems. Not to mention the tangs may not get along.

That was was our thinking as well. We wanted a Yellow Tang at first but when we saw the baby hippo tang we opted to drop the yellow tang idea... unless the hippo doesn't make it, god forbid. She's quite the little hider and we have yet to witness her eating.

This girl has quite an appetite We moved the food to a decorative coral that she's hanging out around and it didn't take her long to start attacking the food.
Form a previous post, you said it had been eating. Regals are very bad with HLLE, and fin rot. Also your tank is to small to house it when it gets larger.

Nope, we lost the first one to a poorly protected PH intake. Made us absolutly sick to our tummies... still does. We are now sufficeintly baby proofed.

As far as the size... My wifes brother has a monster reef tank (350 or 400 gal I think) that would make a nice home for her when the time comes.

Sorry to hear that you lost the first one..PH's can be a bit brutal on unsuspecting little fish and inverts.. Hope the new does good for you.
