Stocking Options

Recommended Posts

As my tank is finally cycled and things are stable, I'm ready to add new fish to my system. It is a RSM E-170 currently stocked with three yellowtail damsels, a peppermint shrimp, and snails and hermits. I'd like to do stuff that's more unique since I don't have all the space in the world, so any recommendations for fish or inverts are greatly appreciated!

For a 45 gallon tank, those damsels might be a problem with other fish going forward.  You'll need something that can stick up for itself.  Maybe a pseudochromis (dottyback) and/or a hawkfish.

I may leave them as the only three fish in the system. Keeps the bioload down, too. Maybe just focus on inverts and corals.
