    Default Noob Stocking Advice!

    0 Not allowed!
    Hi guys! Have done freshwater for several years but wanted to venture out into the saltwater world. In the planning stages of a 75g reef tank and I need advice for stocking as I am a noob.

    I was thinking something along the lines of:

    Blue Tang
    (2x) Ocellaris Clownfish
    Royal Gramma Basslet
    Longfin Cardinal
    Six Line Wrasse
    Longnose Hawkfish

    Do you have any thoughts or advice? Am I overstocking? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I am not a SW person, but sounds like nice assortment of fish. There are a couple SW keepers here so I am hoping they chime in soon for you.

    Hi only just seen this

    If you are meaning blue tang as in Regal Tang then that tank will house 1 for a couple of years after that it will need more space.

    A 6 line is an aggressive fish and can soon turn into a tank terrorist by bullying other fish and eating any shrimp ect you may keep.

    The longnose hawkfish will also eat shrimp.

    Cardinals do better when 2 or 3 instead of on its own

    Other then that welcome to the salty side :)

    Anymore questions feel free to ask :)

    Welcome to the salt life, instead of the 6 line look at a melanuras wrasse or a fairy wrasse. Instead of the blue maybe a yellow or kole but like marty said you can keep the blue/regal until it gets to big.
    Hope that helps
