    Stocking question

    Getting ready to stock my 55 g salt. This is my first tank and going peaceful. Please tell me if these fish will be ok together. Going with 2 true perc clowns, 1 maroon clown, six line wrasse, yellow watchman goby, tiger pistol shrimp, 2 lawn mower blennies. Already have a CUC in there. Will probably add anenome s for clown to host. Any other fish suggestions? Don't want to be overstocked. Wanted fox face but don't think 55 is big enough?

    I had a Tomato clown before, and that ****er was mean as hell, when I tried cleaning the tank or placing corals it would attack my hand constantly. I hated him.

    She loved her BTA too much...

    I also say no to the Maroons! That was my first clown and when that thing nipped me, it felt light electricity had came through my tank! I got rid of that fish real fast! Mean little suckers!

    No to the 6 line and maroon. Mean little freakers. My six line killed to many fish in my reef.

    I had a 600-gallon reef tank with both percs and maroons with no problems but "space matters".
