    Hi guys

    I recently set up a 20g cube on my desk (50l x 42w x 42w) and am busy filling it with corals. One of my stocking plans is 2 True Percula Clownfish, 1 Orchid Dottyback and 1 Yellow Clowngoby.

    I wanted to find out opinions on how the Orchid Dottyback would do in this setup aggression wise?

    I've setup a cove type of LPS reef. To me the stocking should be fine cause the Dottyback would stake out the bottom sections of the rockwork, the clownfish be free swimming in the water column and the clown goby perching above on the rockwork.

    My concern is the orchid dottyback harassing tank mates, but I've read they are the one kind of dottyback that are supposed to be fairly passive...

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    Daniel

    Dottyback can be aggressive.

    Add it last.

    Maybe concider something else. A midas blennie is a better option than a dottyback
