finding a new tank buddy
 
i have 2 clows and a six line wrass in my 55 tank and dont know what to even consider for my last or last two fish i have about 60 lbs of life rock can someone give me advice on what fish would be a good add to my tank that wont over grow or terrorize my other fish

is this fish only or reef?

jroush21 05-29-2011 11:02 PM

well at the moment its a fish only but i plan on makeing it a reef if i can find a good price on some lights

well
 
there are a number of pretty cool fishes to get..i like the various cardinals....a smaller tang..chromis..those are just some of the things that come to mind..

what would be a good tang to get that would be good for my 55

i personally wouldnt add a tang to a 55

i think some peoples would argue with me but if you do your research and take it slow you could get a mimic,kole or a yellow.

thats what i heard that they nrrd a min of a 75 but if there was one out there that could live in a 55 i would love to know

badxgillen 05-30-2011 01:30 AM

hmmm
 
i suppose it would depend on the floor plan..i have one in a 40 breeder as does a friend i have but that has a deeper plan than the standard 55..is it 12 inches on yours?

these are the only 3 id consider. you have to remember alot of space is lost from the live rock, so really your 55 gallon tank is more like 35 gallons. (if not less )
i think a better choice would be a dwarf angel, like a flame or coral beauty over a tang, but thats just me, as its your tank, not mine.
