160 litre stocking examples?
That's about 40 gallons, as a rule for stocking 1 inch of fish per 10 gallons is ideal in saltwater applications. So for that size of tank I would suggest smaller size of fish, nothing that will grow large. Gobies, blennies, clowns, fire fish these are some examples for you to look at and get more of an idea of what you would like in the tank. Welcome to Fish Lore!!!
definitely would like a clow and an anemone thats possible right?
You will need to wait a year before you can introduce anemone's clown fish would be fine to have in your tank.
What kind of lights are you running? Are you interested in keeping a bubble tip anemone? That's probably the hardiest of them and will do best under T5's or metal halides and needs to be fed periodically. I think once the tank is established/cycled/balanced (several months) you could keep them if you have the proper lighting.
In a tank of that size I'd keep something like this..... 2 Percula Clownfish 1 Bubbletip anenome 3 Clown Gobies 5 Reef Chromis 1 Scooter Blenny Then I'd also have a bunch of other shrimp and inverts.
thanks mike i would be getting the coorect lighting and the bubble tip is a cool anemone didnt realise it was that long if a wait period though :/
emma i also like your choice im thinking all of them. i like the green chromis and been told look amazing under great lighting! i got told the blemmies destroy your reef tho is this true?
It's only a 40 gallon tank to many fish for that size of water volume.
If you have multiple blennies they will pick and fight with each other and they can destroy your tank , you should only have one species in the tank.
