    Default Stocking 46 gallon FOWLR tank

    0 Not allowed!
    Hello! I was recently gifted a 46 gallon bowfront tank with a 10 gallon sump set up, with lots of live rock and a royal gramma. I was hoping to get some advice on on my idea for stocking the tank. I want to keep the royal gramma. I'm thinking of adding the following:
    Green chromis (a group of them?)
    Six Line Wrasse
    Diamond Watchman Goby
    Clownfish (pair)

    Do you guys this this will be a good community? I wanted to add some yellow tail damsels as well but have read that they get aggressive.

    46 gallon bowfront: 1 angelfish, 1 blue guorami, 9 cherry barbs, 9 harlequin rasboras

    29 gallon dwarf puffer tank

    36 gallon bowfront: Currently 7 rummynose tetras, 7 neon tetras, 3 panda cory cats, 3 julii cory cats. Soon to have a betta!

    I would do a min of 3 chromis as they do best in a group. For the damsel...damsels are nasty little things. If you were to do a damsel I would only keep 1 as that tends to curb some of their temper. Yellow tails are particularly foul IME for their size. In all honesty I would do a pygmy angelfish over the damsel...they offer a similar color scheme and are typically more mellow.

    Chromis are a bad bet these days. Many are shipping with disease and they are known for picking each other off over time. The 6 line wrasse is the devil incarnate. Many folks with 100 plus gallon tanks that have had to ditch them. It's a bit of a stretch but I would go with a Red Lined Wrasse:
