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.

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.
