    hey all. I was wondering if you guys think I am already at my max or if an additional fish would be fine.

    I currently have:

    1 banded Coral shrimp
    1 Brittle Star
    7 Mexican Hermit crabs (small)
    2 Turbo snails
    2 Banggai Cardinals

    I wanted to put in a Coral beauty or 2-3 Chromis. What do you guys think? Its a pretty light bioload so far I think, no?

    setup includes:

    20 lbs of live sand
    30+ lbs of Live rock
    CPR Bak-Pak 2R protein skimmer
    2 Koralia 1's
    29g Saltwater, FOWLR
    8 Mexican Hermits
    2 Turbo snails
    2 Brittle Star
    1 Coral banded Shrimp
    2 Banggai Cardinals
    1 Coral Beauty

    I would lean towards adding the coral beauty over the 2-3 chromis.

    - 29g FW - Community - Congo Tetras and a mated pair Kribensis
    - 55g SW - Royal Gramma, 6-Line Wrasse, 2 Ocellaris Clownfish, and various corals and inverts

    I would get a pair of clowns. IMO a 29g is too small for a coral beauty.

    Some people say 30 min, some say 55, couple sites said 20 and then some said 75. Owner at LFS has had a CB in a 30 for a few years now with a couple other fish and he said it has done just fine so I may take the risk. Such a beautiful fish at a reasonable price and good behavior (that also stays small)!

    If you did the CB, let it be the only fish in the tank. Its going to need all the room in there for itself....not to mention they are a decent body sized fish
    3x75 gallons|1x55 gallon|2x40 gallons
