For my 7 gallon cube i'm considering stocking it with only 2 fish because of the small tank foot print of 12"x12"x12". I'm aware that many in the hobby feel like this is too many fish for this footprint but I've seen here that some go outside that way of thinking. Fish would of course only be added once the tank is fully cycled and stable, and there will be at least a month between adding the 2 fish. I'm thinking of starting with the smaller fish first. I'm thinking it'll either be a green banded goby OR a 2 spot blenny, and then awhile later (at least a month preferably longer) I'm considering either a royal gramma OR a possum wrasse. I'd like some opinions on whether this idea is a poor one or not and people's experience with these individual fish. I know royal grammas can be pricks which is why that fish if I choose it would be last after all potential cleaning crew members and inverts are added. I'm torn between the wrasse and gramma because while the wrasse is so damn cute and was the first non-eel fish to capture my attention, they do tend to be reclusive and with my limited stocking options I'd hate to get a fish I end up not seeing frequently. On the flip side from what I've read royal grammas can be royal pita's because they can be bullies, and I hate the thought of putting any fish through the stress of having to be brought back to the store because of aggression issues. If anyone has alternate suggestions for stocking (that aren't a clownfish), particularly for midwater swimmers like the gramma or wrasse I'd love to hear them. Because of the small footprint here I want one small bottom hoping fish and one midwater so they aren't always up in each others business.
