Stocking help
Right now in my 55 I have 2 clowns and a scooter for fish. I'd like to put one more for a show piece but it has to be coral safe. Any thoughts

Flasher wrasse are nice

I'll check them out. I'm not trying to put a lot of fish in my tank. Focusing more on corals

How many more fish could I put in my 55

that really depends on your system.

PS. my favorite fish for that size of a tank would be anthias and chromises.

I have a 55 and have 2 clown
2 yellowtail damsels
1 purple dottyback
1 coral beauty
1 fire fish
1 sailfin tang
1 diamond goby
and then my clean up crew. I know the tank is busy but looks goods

Nice stock list but IMO I wouldn't trust a coral beauty with corals that I have or plan in having. Beautiful fish though

Nice but a salifin tang will get way to big for a 55

Stlrockguy 08-13-2013 10:44 AM

I thought so also. They need at least 180 gallons and I'd want an 8 ft tank for it. I've thought about getting a yellow tang but I'm not sure about that either

woody390 08-13-2013 10:45 AM

Yeah I've heard at least at least a 6 foot for a yellow tang as would love one in my 4 foot tank
