Too many fish??

Hello everyone!! I have a 75 gal tank and have 9 fish so far plus some snails and crabs and 2 cleaner fish. I was thinking about getting a couple more fish, is that ok to add more or do I have enough?

That rule is stupid, 10 inch oscar in a 10g is a common example. Or 10 goldfish in a 10g, another example. It depends on the bioload of the fish and how much bioload you have in your tank. also tank size fits in to the equation for swimming space. So i would stay at what your at right now and get a CUC, hermits, porcelain crabs,emerald crabs, some snails stuff like that. Invertabrates give the tank a night life!

Blue damsel, agressive little guys, may some times pic on tank mates but usually just other damsels. I would give it back to the lfs and the. Get a fairy wrasse to lighten up the tank up. Make sure to acclimate it well, drip for an hour or so. Heres a link to some reef safe wrasses. Take a look around live aquaria and see if you like anything, then ask on here. http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/a....cfm?c=15+1378
