    Last fish for my 65gallon?

    Current fish in my tank:

    2 x Ocellaris Clowns
    1 x Yellow Tang
    1 x Yellow Watchman Goby (only comes out at feeding time :huh3: )
    2 x Cleaner Shrimp

    Getting full I know... But the tank looks so empty of fish...

    I was thinking to get a Royal Gramma Basslet...

    Do you think that would be a good choice for my tank?

    Thanks,




    Marc

    Flame Hawkfish all the way

    They look awsome and have a great personality. They don't get much bigger than 4" either.

    From what I have read, a royal grandma would be a great addition.

    I don't have any experience with Flame Hawks, however, every says they are full of personality. I was never willing to add one for fear they might make a meal out of my Blood Shrimp. I would vote against the Royal Gramma simply because they are not the most active fish out there. Mine was the first fish I purchased several years ago and it is still going strong but to be honest, its boring.

    I suggest three small Blue Chromis. Not real flashy looking, however, they will stay together in a group and look pretty cool. I have 9 in my tank and I finf they filled out the tank nicely and added constant movement. Mine seem to have maxed out at around 2".
    If my wife asks, it was only $20.

    Hardware:
    220 Gal Mostly SPS Reef, 66 gal sump with refuge, 33 gal refugium, Gen-X Mak-5 Return, 3 x IceCap 250 MH, 2 x 110 VHO, Deltec APF600 Skimmer and a Deltec AP-600, Geo 6-18 Calcium Reactor, 2 x Tunze Stream 6100, Profilux Plus II EX Controller.

    3 Blue Chromis could be an option... But would that increase my bioload alot since I'd be adding 3 fish?

    I think this thread is missing posts...

    if you have a clown now pair it and add a nice bubble tip.

    I have 2 clowns and a bubble in my 12G.

    If you got three small Blue Chromis you should be fine. It really all depends on your skimmer capacity. I run a heavily stocked tank, however, my skimmer is overpowered for the size of my tank, and I have added them slowly.

    The second clown (get the smallest one you can) and an anenome are also an option as you appear to have MH lighting. Bulb Tip Anenomes are great first anenomes as they are fairly hardy.
