My tank is 55 gallons and I had 7 fish in total. I had a sleeper goby that passed away.
Not because of the water quality, but because his eye was eaten out of it's socket. I thought it was going to live and I still can not figure out what had decided to eat the eye out of my Goby.
He lived for three days, but I guess it was just too much. I thought he would be fine, he was eating, swimming, and digging. Yet the last day he just went into his cave and stayed put and passed away.
This is my stocking list, I don't know what I can put into my tank now. I would like seven fish again, but I don't want an eye to be eaten again. I had all my fish for 2 months with no issues.
1. Flame Hawk
1. Yellow Eye Tang
1. Yellow Tang
1. Blue Spotted Toby Puffer
1. Six Line Wrasse
1. Coral Beauty
I also have a few hermit crabs and a spiny sea urchin. I am upgrading to an 180 gallon by the end of this year which only the two tangs will be transferred out to the bigger tank. So the fish that I want will need to be able to be fine for the rest of his life in the 55. Thanks for the help!
