There are no other fish in the tank at all?
Can you photograph and post the tank as is, now?
Nope, the clownfish was the only fish. I do not like crowding a handful of fish in such a small tank as some people like to do.
The tank looks just like this except the without the ocellaris.....

In that set up, you have room for another mid-column swimmer (1" - 1.5" max) and a couple small sifters (small Gobies or Blennies of some sort)... wouldn't be over crowded. Infact, you actually have room for... oh nevermind (I won't go there) But, you like it that way, and that's cool too. You did a great job scaping it.

BTW, where in Manhattan do you live? I'm born and raised here in Los Angeles, but with my profession, I'm back and forth, here to there all the time. I actually use to have a really nice place at the top of the park (lower H-Town). Got too expensive, so I just went back to doing hotels LOL.

I live on the upper west side between Morningside Park and Columbia University.

Could i have a algae blenny? I have been interested in one for a while now but I have seen that they can grow HUGE, which is why I have not gotten one.

Oh crap, not too far from where I had my place. Love your neighborhood alot. Right near the diner (oh what's it's real name???) anyway, the freakin' Seinfeld diner LOL! The one that has literally the worst service out of any diner that I've ever been to (and I love diners).

regarding the Blenny. I don't see any reason not to house the Blenny. Alot of aquarists (beginners and Advanced aquarists alike) have a misconception about "fish size vs. tank size" Let's use the Blenny for example...... MOST (everyone see that I used the word "most") ...most fish species will grow to a size and at a growth rate comparable to the size to their environment. Hence "Quite a few" lol fish species will grow larger and larger faster, in a 50 gal as opposed to a 14 gal. (and actually such is with most forms of life....example: Bonsai tree). A Queen Angel will grow much faster and much larger in the wild as opposed to growing up in even a, let's say, 500 gal aquarium. The next point is, some aquarists don't understand that if a fish is "getting to big for its britches", the move the darn thing out of that particular environment and give it a larger home else where...simple. There's nothing cruel or unethical about it.

So, those points stated, the Blenny should be absolutely fine for quite some time!! Have fun with him/her!

I know what diner you are talking about, and I can't think of the name right now either haha!

What is your opinion on a small dwarf angel, such as a Coral Beauty, in a 14?
