    Hi all,

    Right.
    I have gotten to the point in this hobby where I have some fish some coral some shrimp and crab species and now I need to be careful when adding fish... so as not to ruin the harmony.

    Maybe some of you can offer some great advise and save me those horrible issues with fish eating up your hard earned cash.

    What I currently have:

    Filtration:
    35Kg Live Rock
    DSB with Chaeto suspended above it
    Skimmer which still has to be upgraded
    DIY Carbon Reactor

    Fish and other mobile creatures:
    2 sebae clowns 1inch
    2 green chromis 1inch
    2 domino damsels 2 inch(which are destined for the LFS)
    2 fire shrimp 3 inch
    2 skunk cleaner shrimp 2inch
    1 sally lightfoot crab 2 inch
    2 Hermit crabs 1/2- 1inch
    1 Lawnmower Blenny 3inch
    1 regal Tang 2 inch
    1 pencil Urchin
    2 zebra Turbo Snail
    1 Turbin Snail
    1 Mexican Turbo snail

    Immobile population:
    Frogspawn coral
    gogonian coral
    sun coral Large Polyp
    sun Coral Small Polyp
    Chili Coral
    Yellow/Gold Zoas
    Green Orange Zoas
    Red Button Polyps
    Green Button Polyps
    Lime Green Button Polyps
    Large Feather Duster
    Hairy Mushrooms
    Green Striped Mushrooms
    Lord of the Rings Polyps
    Green Bristlestar Coral

    Now I would like to add a few more peaceful reef friendly fish.

    This is where i need you all to give me some suggestions.

    Thanks to all in advance.

    how old id the tank and how large? do you have an open aguascape (only 35kg LR) or is it a fairly small tank and thus fairly tightly packed already?

    on your list of fish I would suggest adding a few (around 3) more chromis as they are shoaling fish and prefer to be in a group.

    out of intrest why do you quote in inches?

    i see you have a smallish regal tang and as i am not sure how big your tank is i am not sure how well he will do. but be warned they grow fast and can quickly out grow a tank.

    Personally i think i would upgrade that skimmer and add more of a CUC before i spend $ on a fish. it just sounds like you have a small clean up crew, but it might be a small tank (in which case the regal shouldnt be there) or else a big tank and you should look at more CUC.

    Hi Guys,

    Its a 4 foot tank with a 3 foot Sump.

    Quote in inches as an average.

    I did add to the mix by adding a Sixline Wrasse.

    What CUC would you add?

    I was planning on adding a few more chromis.

    the tank has been up around 2 years although i bought it about 3 months ago and added a bigger sump and the DSB as well as the Carbon Reactor.

    And About 5 KG of Mature Live Rock and 80% of the Livestock.

    How long has the tank been running?

    I agree with Crispin, add 3 or so chromis extra
    Dottyback?
    Royal Grammar?
    Midas Blenny?
