5 gallon fish stocking help


Recommended Posts



I'm a newbie to this hobby. I've got a 5 gallon nano tank that is about 6 weeks old, its been stocked with some soft corals and CUC for a few weeks and now I'm ready to add some fish. I have shortlisted down to following three fish:


Green Banded Goby

Clown Goby (Saffron, Yellow, or Green)

Tail Spot Blenny


Which would you recommend for my tank? Ideally I would like to add two fish from this list, so are they compatible?


Is there anything else you would recommend instead?


Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks for your help. I'll scratch the Blenny off my list


According to the forum you posted I can have a clown goby in a tank over 0.5 gallons and a green banded goby in a tank over 2.5 gallons, therefore can I have both in my 5 gallon tank? If so, are they compatible with each other?

I've never kept any of the small gobies. They would inhabit the same area. Not sure if they'd leave each other alone since there different species or not.
