Im soon moving my fish from my 12g fluval edge to my new fluval 26g bow front it is actually cycling since 1week ill wait til christmas to move them! I would like to add a fu manchu lionfish to my aquarium since i really like lionfish but a volitan is way too big. Would i be better with a dearf ? For now i have 2clowns ocellaris a yellow ead jawfish a lawnmower blenny. They are all young for now so ill wait until they get bigger. Anyone have any idea ig i should or not an why ? Thk !
Honestly, the four fish you have is the most I would ever consider having in a 26 gallon saltwater fish only tank. If it is going to be a reef I'd only recommend three fish tops. Algae or excess nutrients will be an issue otherwise, at least in the long term.
Case is closed then ! I wont put i lionfish since it will be squeeze with the other fish and they will surely be stressed. Thk for the answers everyone ill just add a scarlet skunk shrimp then since there will be no fu manchu to eat it !
