37 Gallon Predatory fish and macroalgae tank.

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, i have just been thinking about a future project i would maybe like to try and would like some advice, the tank is 37 US gallons (140L), 80cm long, 45cm tall, 40cm deep. My plan would be to run an Oase Biomaster 250 Thermo. I would have a 1 inch thick sandbed and a decent amount of rock.

 

I would like to have the tank full of Macro algae and Caulerpa species similar to @Tigahboy's tanks. 

 

Does anybody have any suggestions as to what fish to have in the tank, i would like to have camoflage or strange looking predatory fish like leafy scorpion fish. Would i be able to have a fuzzy dwarf lionfish in the tank if i rehome it to a 75 Gallon tank when it gets to big?

 

any advice would be appreciated.

Rooster waspfish stay pretty small, and are well-camouflaged and easy enough to keep. Just be very sure you don't put them with anything that could swallow them- frogfish will absolutely take a swing at it, and a frogfish swallowing a waspfish would probably kill them both. Waspfish have venomous spines. It would definitely kill the waspfish, of course. 

 

I wouldn't get a lionfish unless you already have the bigger tank. It's best not to buy fish for tanks you don't have, even if you plan to get that tank in the future. Life can always get in the way, especially when it's a bigger tank you're thinking of getting.

A fu Manchu lion may be ok in this tank.
