mmelnick Posted November 30, 2009 Share Posted November 30, 2009 I know everybody here hates damsels since you can't really have any other fish with them... But I’ve had a few fish come and go in my 20H and I only have one lonely OC clown fish left after moving. It has been that way for about 7 months and I can’t really spend $20-50 a piece on a handful of fish right now. I want to get a few fish to liven up the tank and have been debating getting a few green chromis or damsels of some sort. I don’t plan on having anything other than them and the one clown for at least a year when I upgrade to a bigger tank (75 gal or bigger). I’ve got a 10 gal sump (probably holds about 7 gallons of water with the way I have it set up) so a 27 gallon capacity not counting live rock displacement. When I had 2 clowns, a firefish and a scooter blenny I had no problems with water quality. So I’m thinking maybe get a couple green chromis and a couple yellowtail or 4 stripe damsels. But the display is still only 20 gallons. I just have a few questions: 1) Is it a bad idea to have damsels with my clown? 2) How many should I get total? 2) Does it matter how many of each kind? I know firefish have to be alone or in big groups of there kind. Is there any rule like that about damsels? Thanks! Link to comment
