Bigger tank stocking

Recommended Posts


I have a 50G (3 feet long) mix softy, LPS and NPS coral reef that up and running with a 20G sump with a pod rubble haven


Currently I have adult size (as far as I can tell) and all have been moved from my 4yr old 25G tank to the new one.

Black Ice Clownfish

Tail-spot Blenny

Yellow Watchman Goby

Tanaka Possum Wrasse

Neon Goby

Randell Pistol Shrimp

Emerald Crab the size of a quarter

Emerald Crab the size of a dime

2 Trochus snails (medium)

3 Narcissus snails (large)


Last night I bought

3/4 inch Rainford Goby (I know i'm an idiot, but I wanted 1 for 4yrs and think it will have a better chance in this tank then my old one)

1-1/2 inch Cleaner Shrimp


I would still like to add in the up coming weeks

Fire/Blood shrimp about the same size of the cleaner if I can

McCosker wrasse male, there are some being quarantined at my LFS now.


All fish max out at 3 inches with a few being slightly under that. Do you think I can get 7 nano fish in my tank with 3 different kinds of shrimps? As of right now I have no aggression issues and didn't have any with the old 25G. I'm just wondering if I am pushing the stocking of this tank too much because it is so much bigger then my old one.

Fish are individuals but you will likely be just fine with that stock.
