It all depends on what kind of fish you plan on keeping. What are the dimensions of the tank?

What fish do you want? Compatibility and fish size and behavior all come into effect when stocking a sw tank. Iíd do some research as well as post what kinds you want here to see what works together

Like everyone has said, it depends on what you get. I'd say you could put around ten 8"-12" fish in there with a group of smaller schooling fish.

Absolutely not. Thatís a ton of huge sw fish. You could do 2-3 larger fish and then a couple medium and smaller fish. Large fish like tangs need lots of room and territory issues will arise if there isnít enough room for all.

In a sw tank? Even if there isnít aggression the tanks gonna be way overstocked. Tangs, Angels, triggers can all be jerks which are most of the larger fish you can get for a sw tank. A lot of bigger wrasses are buttheads too.

I got a 150g FW SA cichlid tank. Got 7 fairly well tempered cichlids between 6"-10". Two different types of schooling fish and 6 bottom dwellers two which are large clown loaches and 4 pictus catfish.

Yes a fw tank...sw stocking is completely different. Large sw fish need a lot of room per fish as they can swim large areas of a reef. Plus sw tanks canít handle the same bioload a fw tanks can. We are discussing different areas of the hobby. Fresh and salt are very different when it comes to stocking

And I mean 6"-12" fish. I accidentally put an 8 instead of a 6. And I mean a mixture of size.
