My son's new tank

Switched the 67 gallon to a 90. This is four days later. Want to get smaller, more hardy, but still colorful fish. Tried the tangs and they are too delicate. Already have four blue/green chromis, ghost eel, skeletor eel, emerald crab, abalone snail, hermit crabs, two peppermint shrimp, and various snails. Any suggestions?

Hmm, well any smaller fish could be in danger due to the eel. Do you want only smaller nano fish..like clowns? Or possible a larger hardy fish like a rabbitfish?

Hoping not to go with too big of fish. Clowns might be an option again. The bigger fish seem to be more delicate and harder to keep. We feed the eels every other day so hopefully they won't get too hungry.

My son likes cardinals. But they don't really swim. They just float. We are trying I get a colorful but active tank. My son might want a 6 line wrasse and I think that might limit his other choices so..... Anthias, gobies, bennies,..??? Just not experienced enough yet.

I dont believe gobies/blennies will mix well with your eels.. They are bottom dwellers and will prob be eat food for the eel. 6-lines are an active fish that should do nicely

Thanks. I never thought about the bottom dwelling aspect. What else might go with the 6 line?

6-lines are a relatively docile wrasse (atleast from my experience) so any aggressive fish wont be a great choice(my triggers assassinated a mystery wrasse)

Same as before. Cards, anthias, chromis, possibly a fuzzy dwarf lionfish. (possibly)
