live stock options
 
hello everyone i was having some trouble picking a new fish for my aquarium its a 55 gallon so nothing that gets over 5 1/2 inches and nothing that will be uncompatible with maroon clowns, engineer goby,domino and yellow tail damsel, and a yellow tang(i know yellow tangs will outgrow a 55 so i plan to trade him in the future)i was thinking about a tiny blenny but wasnt sure with the engineer hes about 7 inches. any way everyones input will be greatly apreciated.

I know there are a few over your 5.5" rule, but I put them in because they will fit in your 55g.

thank you ,those were some awsome choices but i should have mentioned that i plan on collecting coral after i stock my tank up so alot of those wont do, but i will look into the lemon peel :)

if you like the lemon, a flame or coral beauty might make a better choice. just keep in mind there is a slight chance they will be coral nippers but out of the angels these 2 seem to be better behaved.

good luck with those damsels.

If you are planning on corals, I'd stay away from the Angels.

ahh i forgot about the CORAL BUEATY i think thats my choice im gonna do some research on it. as for the damsels, there actually pretty great. the domino hosts with my maroon pair and the yellow tail is not agressive at all. i have complete peace in my tank :)

as they mature, grow, establish territories they will become nasty.. its basically guarenteed.

George9617 01-02-2012 07:42 PM

Bummer they were my first two fish iand there not worth anything so trading won't get me much .oh well , my yellow tang makes them look cheap anyway.only thing is now my tank will be even emptier
