What fish would be best to add?
When I have the new tank fully ready and the current fish from my 20 gallon all to the 50 gallon tank sometime after I'd like to add another fish or two (well actually I'll test the water and see how it's doing to know what is a good number, but anyway)
So like I said this is a 50 gallon tank.
The fish I currently have are:
yellow tailed damsel
I believe a basslet (it's purple/pinkish and yellow but is not royal gamma)
I'd like to get a
would that be alright, or not such a good idea?
Any other ideas of fish to add?
Neon gobies tend to not live very long.
I'd go with scooter blenny because they have a great personality.
What about a pygmy angel, like a coral beauty? or.. cardinals? pajama cardinals are awesome.
Does it have to be "fish"? What about an anemone? A starfish? A crab? Urchin? Snails?
Lots of cool options...
ummm it doesn't have to be fish, but currently I can't have something with a lot of lighting needs.
well then anemones are out of the question.....you couls try a starfish like a brittle star or shrimp.
Brittle starfish, linkia starfish, long spine urchins, pin cushion urchins, emerald crabs, mushrooms (the mollies may or may not pick at these), coral banded shrimp, peppermint shrimp scarlet or blue leg hermit crabs...there's a huge list of options here.
i wouldn't recommend linkias, they are hard to keep alive past a few months...but brittle stars i would.
THats the wonder of keeping saltwater there are so many options to choice from. But as for the linkia's I dont know anyone that had keep one alive past 6 months. Doesnt mean that it cant be done. I just havent seen anyone do it.
hmmm a few of those ideas sound alright. I also need to check what is at the lfs.
I had a blue linkia that did well for almost 2 yrs... until my "reef safe" goby tore my reef apart overnight, including the starfish and anemones. The 3 big things for linkia are keeping water params in check, including calcium levels, plenty of food (they are an algae eater), and keeping them safe from predators. Purple linkia seem to be more sensitive than the blues or the oranges. And, the linkias don't tolerate stress well, so slow acclimation with a drip line seems to help that a lot.
