Smile Fish (or invert) Choice

Hey all, i have a 29 gallon tank thats currently got 3 blue chromis, and a sandsifting star. Is there anything intelligent that i can add to this? I have read up on cephalapods, but they all sound more difficult than what i can handle... any help is greatly appreciated

Hehhe, elaborate on intelligent
Do you want something with personality to add to your tank?
Are you looking at making your tank "more intelligent"? IE - upgrading technology.
Are you looking at adding "smart" tank mates?

Do some research on shrimp - they always add character, colour and fascination to a tank.

My clownfish definitely added personality, but that's just my experience. Why not try a blenny or dottyback or basslet?

I love my Midas Blenny!!! Beautiful color AND is active. For some reason he nips at my zebra dartfish sometimes, but never anything that has caused injury. And the blenny only does that when the dartfish gets too close to his favorite cave

an octopus or cuttlefish would eat everything else. your tank is too small for those anyway. i agree with sharpie. shrimp, crabs, stuff like that are always entertaining.

check out the anemone crab, they perch on rock out in the open a lot and filter feed with little fans. Awesome to watch. A wrasse will also stay active and zoom around the tank hunting pods and such

These crabs are also known as "Pom-Pom" crabs because the anenomes on their claws look like pom-poms.
