My 55gal tank

Hi! im new here and i have a few questions and im open to some suggestions as to what to do with my tank. In my 55 i have 3 convits one male and 2 females, i kind of want to get rid of the female cuz im tired of dealing with fry and such, 1- 2.5 inch green terror, 1-5 inch Polleni, a 3.5 inch striped rapheal(prolly my fav fish), a 6inch orange algea eater, and a 2.5 inch balzani. I know for a fact that im going to get rid of the female convits and i was wondering wither i could add fish after or if my tank is full???? i would like to add fish but idk really pretty open to all advice. Thanks

To be honest I would not add anything else once you get rid of the convicts,

The Polleni alone is going to grow to 11" and the GT and Balzani 8" which is not going to leave a lot of room with the cats in there as well.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

:) I'm glad to see you're already taking steps into making sure your finned friends will have enough space to grow and thrive! Good job.

I ALWAYS say go with live plants wherever possible, but I can't advise on what will stand up to your feisty fish! I'm sure you'll get more info from the cichlid pros - keep up the good work!
