Suggest fish!

Recommended Posts

I'm already starting to plan out next steps for my 90g (48x18x24). The tank is pretty mature now, SPS are stable and growing, LPS are happy, and fish are for the most part well-behaved. I feel like I need to add 2-3 fish to increase bioload.

 

So far I have:

pair of occelaris clowns

yellow eye kole tang

McCosker's wrasse

Lubbock fairy wrasse

yellow coris wrasse

tailspot blenny

yellow watchman/tiger pistol pair

 

What other fish would work with this mixed reef? I was thinking a rabbitfish or another tang, but apparently the tank's not big enough for another grazer. The only other thing I can think of is a small group of anthias. I don't think cardinals will do well in lots of flow, and I think I'm maxed out with wrasses.

If you want a schooling fish try a group (4-5) of gobies. Trimma or Eviota. A group of Anthias is really pushing it. If you want a larger fish you could definitely do another Halichoeres or Leopard wrasse. A single sunburst anthias could work as well.

Hmm, I'll have to look into the Halichoeres again. I do like my wrasses. I was thinking of adding a larger fish that can hold its own, as the wrasses, clowns, and tang are quite boisterous.

You could do a Striped Squirrelfish (I personally think they're stunning):

If you don't have any small inverts, then you could try this hawkfish or goatfish:

Or if you fancy the color red and need something vivid, then go for a hogfish:
