Hi All,

As some of you know I am pretty new in this hobby and I want to buy the below fishes time by time.

I need your help about their compatibility with each other.

I have a austarlian clarkie and a blue tail damsel in my tank at the moment.

what should be the order to put these fishes into the tank?

1 Yellow Coris Wrasse (Halichoeres Chrysys)
1 Six Line Wrasse (Pseudocheilinus Hexataenia)
1 Longnose Hawkfish (Neocirrhites Armatus)
1 Bicolor Goby
1 Yellow Tang (Zebrasoma flaviscens)
1 Salarias faciatus (jewelled blenny veya algae blenny)
1 Yellow Watchman Goby (Cryptocentrus Cinctus)
1 Royal Dottyback (Pseudochromis Paccagnellae)
1 Rocket Goby (Ptereleotris Evides)
1 Tiger Band Sleeper Goby (Valenciennea Wardi)
1 Foxface Rabbit (Singanus Vulpinus)
1 nematodes ve randalli pair

by the way
my tank is 100x45x60h
my sump is 65x35x35

Thanks for comments

Actually I tried to select small size fishes,
I am little worried about foxface rabbit I may eliminate it.
also I am thinking to change the yellow and blue tang when they gets bigger.

Is this a wish list or do you seriously think that your tank could support that many fish?
You have 2 fish in already, i would consider no more than another 3.

yes mike this is a wish list :)
Cool, avoid too many blennies or gobies, there is insufficient room in your tank for them to compete for their preferred food (pods) or habitat, so go for one blennie, one goby and perhaps the dottyback - or better yet a bigger tank:)

Yes, but not if you have the Sixline

Maybe - can be aggressive

Yes just watch your inverts

Yes, but not if you have the Bicolor

No, too small and will be terroirsed by Six-line and/or bicolour

Whoa, didnt know you could only stock 5 fish in a tank that size. Must be about approx 300 litres including the sump - that would mean a nano of 150litrs you should only be able to stock 2 fish.

If he has a big enough skimmer, dsb, scrubber, i am sure he can stock more then 5 fish. Whats equipment you got kuzuner?

It's not really that straight forward, look at the fish he has already a clarkii and a damsel, the damsel can reach around 3inches and the clarkii nearer 5 inches at full adult length. Imagine a full grown clarkii in a 1metre tank, it will be sucking the 02 out of the water very quickly.

Now look at the fish on the wish list and see what any of them reach at adult length, then hopefully you will be able to see where the limitations start to show, should you have a power out for any reason, how long will the 02 last? not long if the tank is stocked to the brim.
