    Hi guys, what nice fish can i add to my cube ?

    I already have:
    2 clowns
    1 regal
    1 fox face
    5 Chromis
    1 fire fish
    2 purple (fire fish), dont know the name, but they are purple.
    blue cheek blenny
    scopas tang

    I was thinking of a flame angel, but i am scared my corals might be nibbed. I am into softies.

    Next is a yellow and purple tang ... and also 5 goldies

    what else is the question ?

    I have a 650L cube, and think i can have about 30 small fish, or 15 biggish fish ... but what is the question.

    I want to add 1 fish per month from now on ...:blush:

    Well if you had an agro tang like a powder blue and you dropped in a butterfly then you could have problems. @ziyaadb has a regal & 2 zebrasoma's and later on added a raccoon butterfly and they got along well. Think you just have to carefully consider the tangs, what sizes to get and when to add them to the tank

    What else is the question you should ask yourself...not someone else, only you know what kind of fish you like and what colours you want in your tank. Maybe think about what species of fish you want to keep and then look for input on different types of that species if you are unsure whats out there.

    Add the Flame, from my experience there is only a small chance it will nip corals...same as any dwarf angel for that matter. They generally tend to go for open brain type corals if they are going to nip anyway.

    by 15 large fish are u refering to things like tangs and large angels? Cause I think you are way off there. I wouldnt really add more after the next 2 you add. You could, but it would be better not to.
