Reef safe fish #1
I currently have a 500 ltr tank with:

- 1 regal tank, a perc clown, a fire fish, a sand sifting goby, two shrimps, about 8 soft corals and a few crabs. I also have about 80kgs of live rock.

Does anyone know of a site that has a list of all the fish that would be suitable for this set up? I keep on thinking about various fish but then I bottle it because I have doubts about their suitability.

Any thoughts on a spotted boxfish? Could I get another tang in or is this a bad idea?

Any help appreciated.

Re: Reef safe fish #3
the kole tang is a really nice fish - had kind of worked on the basis that another tang was not a great idea because they would be aggressive to each other though?

Also, do you know if I buy another clown to go with the one I have got have you any idea what the best way to go about this is?

Anyone got any other suggestions? I really dont know what to get.

I have attached a pic of my tank

kole tangs are normally peaceful as for adding a clown you need to add one much smaller than the one you have that way they wont fight to death as the larger one will become the female with just a few small scuffles lol
