    Hi ,

    i was just wondering of what kinda fish i want to get in the future for my tank.
    its about 400litre tank.

    i got so far:
    1 african clown
    lawnmower blenny
    cleaner wrasse


    what i want to get:
    yellow tang
    regal tang
    yellow watchmen goby
    benggai cardinal
    shrimp

    Will they possible future new additions be able to live with the current inhabitants?

    what will the dimensions of this tank be maj?
    yellow tang - should be fine
    regal tang - a bit difficult to keep as very prone to white spot and gets big. You may need to get him a new home after some time
    yellow watchmen goby - fine
    benggai cardinal - great fish to have
    shrimp - what shrimp?

    1.25X600X600 is the tank dimensions.
    Fireshrimp,dancing shrimp

    the goby wont bother the lawnmower blenny at all?

    really like the regal tang,hope i can keep it!
    if not a regal,is it possible to get a type of reef safe trigger?

    Sorry no idea...bro

    Just keep in mind ALL triggers can become aggro before getting one, the only trigger I would really trust is a Niger trigger
