  • looking for fish recommendations

    I have 6 fish in my 150 gallon tank and I want to add some more. Here is what I have. The tank is peaceful for the most part so I don't want to add an instigator. Anyone have a suggestion?

    one spot foxface
    purple tang
    pair of black and white ocellaris clowns
    purple fire fish
    yellow coris wrasse

    Hi Lynne,

    Two of my favorites have been a starry blenny and a diamond goby. The starry blenny usually perches on the top of my tallest rock structure when it stops to rest. My diamond goby does a great job of keeping the sand clean in the tank. They both seem to avoid conflict with the other inhabitants, including my purple tang and six line wrasse.

      Thanks Jeff! I had a starry blenny before and loved it. He is actually shown in my avitar. I think that will be one of my choices.

      Do you have any experience with a splendid dottyback or orchid dottyback? was thinking about getting those. It says they can be housed together if added at the same time.

        I had an orchid dottyback previously. No experience in having multiple. It was in the same tank with a yellow assessor, which is similar in body shape. They seemed to get along fine.
        Are you considering any schooling fish? or another wrasse?

          anyone have experience with cardinal fish? not the bangai, but the others? they seem to shoal together.

            There are lots of different cardinal fish. I have seen tanks with shoals of longspire cardinal fish and it was really cool looking, but I have never had any in my tanks. Below is a link to the cardinalfish page at liveaquaria.

              If you feed your tank a few times a day you could have a few anthias.

                    Yeah I need some thing to stir the sand so I got the Sleeper Gold Head Goby. I hope he does a good job. Also I had never heard about the Ember Blenny. He sure is cool looking. I hope he does well in my tank. I also got an Orchid Dottyback. I hope I didn't over stock the tank....LOL I may be looking for a bigger skimmer after this.

                      So-my order came in but they sent the wrong Damselfish. The picture of the fish will a yellow head is what they were supposed to send. The other one is what they sent.
