    Hello everyone, in my saltwater tank I currently have:

    1 Yellow coris wrasse
    3 Green chromis
    2 skunk cleaner shrimp
    6 blue leg hermit crabs

    I would like to add another species of fish, my tank is 34G, on my wish list I have:

    cherub angelfish
    2 occelaris clownfish
    scooter blenny

    I am thinking of adding the clownfish next as the angel and blenny both need a mature tank.

    My question is, would it be best to add the clowns next? and also I am unsure as to whether adding all of these fish would make me overstocked or not?

    Thanks alot

    Ben

    I'd suggest adding the clowns next and the angel last, as it can be territorial. The scooter blenny is actually a dragonet and would do best in a tank with a refugium. Their diet consists almost entirely of copepods and without a refugium, they can wipe out a pod population quickly since they are constant grazers. Unfortunately, I'd advise you to skip the scooter blenny altogether.

    Ok thanks harpua :)
    Can you think of any other bottom dwelling fish that I could have? I like gobies but I have coral gravel not coral sand so they would not be able to sift it as easily although I am considering changing the front area of the tank to coral sand :)

    Ive read that neon gobies do not require coral sand?

    Thanks
    Ben

    Neon gobies don't. They aren't sifters.
