This is a super general question about fish compatibility. I have done some homework, but I just like to seek some second opinions.
So, I have a 2 year established tank, 35 gallons. Nothing special, just several pounds of live rock. I started with 2 oscellaris clowns. Both got sick from brooklynella, I was able to save one. He has been dubbed rocky since the ordeal lol. Ok, so since then I have been very very hesitant to buy anything new. Being new to the game. I got this little clown with 35 gallons all on his own. I think its time to get back in there and get a couple of friends for him. Understanding clowns can be aggressive, and I will say this little guy is super active (but of course on his own).
So here it goes, I am looking for options for tank mates for him. I debated on another clown, understanding they do well in pairs. I dont plan to exceed a total of 4-5 fish in the tank. I'd like to stick with fish that max size is 3-4" for obvious reasons. Not to say I am lazy, but looking for average care needed. The less aggressive the better.
Sorry this post is so long, but I am being super careful after my first go around. I feel somewhat attached this little guy now, a year and half going strong and healthy.
Looking forward to all of your suggestions!
Thank you in advance.
OH ONE MORE THING! I need to get a couple of critters to control algae. I thought I might figure that after, but feel free to make recommendations. I would appreciate that as well.
