    Tank size for fish list?

    Just looking ahead (either planning or dreaming depending on the day )

    I am considering up-grading to a 90-120G tank range reef tank. I've been thinking about potential fish and have come up with this list. Would be interested in comments, particularly as to suitablility for a 90G tank. They would be added slowly.:

    1) Foxface Lo (Siganus vulpinus)
    2) Green Mandarin (Synchiropus splendidus)
    3) Rainford's Goby (Amblygobius rainfordi)
    4) Small school of Anthias (1 male, 3-4 female). Either 'disbar' or 'Carberryi' if you can get these in Canada.
    5) Sailfin/Algae Blenny (Salarias fasciatus)
    6) Perhaps one more small goby or dottyback.

    Thanks.
    Nick

    The mandarin requires a pretty mature well established tank for any success. Not sure about the others on the list though. At this racket the current tank you have never seems large enough does it.

    Those fish would fit nicely in a 90, and probably more.

    Are you planning a reef? If so, a 120 would be better IMO because it'd give you an extra 6" front to back which makes a world of difference over 18"
