Wht's a good group of fish tht can be kept together :)

As the title states I'd like some ideas on what is a good group of fish of the same kind I can keep together please, maybe like 5 or 6 of them? Anything besides damsels -_- lol.

I'm in the process of upgrading my 55gal tank to 100 gal, and the fish I have now are pretty chill besides my agressive humu trigger he targets anything new like my coral beauty who I thought was a goner but they are fine now. My domino damsel is aggressive as well and use to always chase my green chromis around. The rest are my tomato clown, niger trigger, coral beauty.

Thanks !

Wait until your upgrade the tank. That many fish will overload the system when you have large fish in there that are too big for the current tank to begin with.

With the clown, trigger and damsel in there, I'm not sure I would add a group of fish. It would need to be something like Chromis or Anthias, but those three that you already have are likely to terrorize them. I'd consider something like a Foxface, Tang, Hawk and/or wrasse once you upgrade.

When i had them all together in my 55 gal the domino damsel was the only one tht would go after my chromis constantly but the chromis helds his own up until i put them all together in a qt... Not sure who dis it but within a few days in my 30 gal qt he was dead and I actually had the chromis the longest smh

My trigger is about 4 inch and the domino is almost 6 inch and about a inch and a half wide he's big and fat
I've been trying to catch him almost a year and a half I don't want to tear apart the tank I've been using a baited hook , he gets the bait off but he isn't stupid enough to bite the hook . he is intimidating he try's to bite me when I put my arm in tank to fix something , I call him JAWS
