I think you are approaching your limit, but you aren't there yet. A big key is going to be how the Clowns behave when the Chromis & Yellow Watchman are added. Do the Clowns ignore them, or show signs of establishing the entire tank as their territory? Assuming that the Clowns ignore the new livestock, then I think you have room to add both a Royal Gramma and a Flame or Cherub Angel.

I would personally not add more Chromis. I would have immediately purchased a replacement and Q'd them all together, but at this point we can't turn back the clock, so I would personally just ignore the situation. Honestly, 3 would probably not be enough to establish a good school anyhow, and aggression was bound to occur at some point. Hopefully having 2 will cause them to pair off, which might be your best shot.

I actually felt that bullying contributed to the first chromis death. There was a little aggression when I first put them in the QT and my wife told me when I found him dead that the she noticed the other chromis were picking on him. I assumed they might have been picking on a weak or sick fish but he was certainly visibly beat up when I removed him.

Any other interesting livestock I can put in this tank? I love the cleaner shrimp so far.

After 19 days in QT I dripped the 3 fish and shrimp for 2 hours and added them to my display. Going to keep my QT tank empty for a week or so to ensure everybody is doing good and then I am going to get my final fish. Am still at a loss as to what I am going to get but I do like my fish so far.

Any suggestions for another interesting shrimp? We love the skunk cleaner... they are sooo fun to watch.
