To add or not to add, that is my question.

I have a 29g FOWLR with approximately 40lbs of LR. I'm running a Reef Octopus BH-90 skimmer. All my water parameters are good and I feed every other day. My current stock is 2 oscellaris clowns,1 pajama cardinal, and 2 hermits.

I really want to add a dwarf cherub angelfish and a cleaner shrimp. I plan to upgrade (don't we all) to a bigger tank in a year or two. My question is will the cherub be ok in a 29g tank or am I flirting with a stressed out fish/bio-overload with 4 fish?

Lastly, do you guys recommend qt for the cleaner shrimp before adding to the DT? I've read so many different opinions. Thanks for any and all advice!

I agree ^ but I don't think you HAVE TO quarantine your cleaner shrimp, but I can't really hurt.

QT is up to you, but maybe just look it over, and if all looks ok, it should be fine.
