    Hi Everyone.

    This is my first attempt for a marine aquarium.
    I decided on a 70L nano setup to start with.

    Current live stock is 2 clown fish and one banggai cardinal.
    Any recommendations on what pigmy angels I can add to the aquarium?

    To be honest I wouldn't add a pygmy angel.

    But your tank looks good

    Mmmmm...

    70l you're really limited. I'd maybe get something like a yellow watchman goby with a Pistol shrimp.

    Seems to be a pretty peaceful tank, maybe a firefish? As @TaahirS has also said, a goby would be a good edition too...

    Hi @Richard01
    The tank is now about 6 months old.

    I think you are at the maximum anyway for your size tank. The fish will still grow to their maximum sizes.

    Keep in mind that saltwater holds a lot less oxygen than freshwater.

    I agree with @RiaanP
    What about adding a citrus goby? Those will be perfect for your tank

    Thanks for the replies regarding what fish I can add to my aquarium.
    There is a nice variety of small gobys.

    Your tank is looking neat and healthy, do you have a sump and skimmer on your tank.

    Hi @desiree. The tanks is running with a hang on skimmer and also running a back sump (like the Red Sea aquariums) with a refugium.
