What Fish To Get...
What fish should in my 42 gallon tank its been set up for 1 month and i has 2x crabs 1x snail and 2x Chromis and everything's going OK was wondering what else i could get fish wise.[/i]
a few clownfish are always a good choice
I'm enjoying my hawkfish. It is really very cool. My favorite that I have actually. Don't expect a lot of swimming since they don't have swim bladders, but this fish is very personable....will come to the tank and stare back at you when you are looking in. Also will try to eat from my hand if I let him.
Easy to take care of, and stay pretty small for a smaller tank.
hawkfish are a very entertaining and hardy choice, but be aware that they will likely eat your crabs
clowns are a nice addition!!
42G would be great to watch a bunch of gobies/blennies act up together.
I always thought chromis were on the peaceful side, I also think they like to school, so adding 4 or 5 more would make them happy and it would be nice to watch. Other peaceful fish would be cardinals. Clowns are nice as everyone stated, I like gold striped maroons and they like bubble tips. Though clowns are in the family of damsels and the possibility exists that they might beat up on your chromis.
the yellow striped maroon clown is nice to look at but will be unmercifly agressive towards most anything else so wouldnt be a smart choice. but a pair of ocellaris clown or maybe a pair percula clowns with an anemone would be a great choice
Now a few weeks/months on i have
2x Common Clowns
2x Blue Green Chromis
1x Humbug Damsel
1x Pink Spot Watchman Goby
1x Cleaner Wrasse
1x Tail Spot Blenny[/b]
And how do they interact?
