    Question Livestock Suggestions

    Started my first saltwater tank about 3/4 months ago. The tank is a 40-gallon breeder.

    Currently stocked with:
    3 Blue/Green Chromis
    1 Filefish

    Thinking about:
    Black & White Ocellaris Clownfish
    Ocellaris Clownfish
    Green Clown Goby
    Porcelain Anemone Crab
    Coral Beauty Angelfish (to big as adult?)
    Flame Angelfish (to big as adult?)
    Dottyback(not sure what kind)
    Six Line Wrasse

    Obviliyu not all of the above will fit. I was just wondering what the community thought.

    If you are wanting corals be very careful with angel fish.
    Also for a 40breeder that's a a lot of fish. I would do a pair of clowns, goby, and 6line wrasse.

    Depending on your filtration anything is possible. I usually split my tank levels up into 3 areas: Bottom/Mid/Top and then I stock them accordingly. Using your example: Gobys, Crabs, and some dottybacks (Bottom) Clownfish, Dottyback, six line, (Mid) Angel (Top).

    As for suggestions: Your chromis will probably kill each other off until there is 1 like in highlander. Id probably scrap them and go with 2 talbot damsels. Then your choice of Clownfish (the more opposite the coloration away form the talbots the better). For a little movement id go with a bicolored blenny or something similar, sixline or other small wrasse, then depending on if your wanting coral or not either a coral beauty or flame angel. if you see the possibility of coral then id say a small scopas tang but i know that idea might not go over well in the forums. They tend to stay small and have great movement and personality. Id also look into other small fish instead of larger ones like Flame Gobys, Hawkfish, Royal Grammas. But its really just personal preference.
