It all depends on what you want?It's not the amount of fish,it's the amount of inches of fish.

Most SW fish are bright adn well marked!! What do you like best. Stay away from things like tangs, large angels, and other big fish. Fish like damsels, and fire fish are good canidates. Well not damsels, they get too territorial. Go to liveaquaria.com and look at the nano fish. Hope that helps. Here is the nano link:

really any will get along. I dont know of any that would have problems together. But you might have problems if you mix and match gobies. Unless they are a pair. someone correct me if im wrong. What did you like? You are not limited to just those. There could very well be others they did not include, but it gives you a start. Alos, maroons are almost a guarante with an anomone. Mine took less than 2hr to make a home in my anomone.

answers please
there are tons of gobys that would work. Check out www.liveaquaria.com and find some that you like. If your unsure if they are compatible come back with a specific species and then we can help you better.

I just bought 3 bumble bee gobies. They are a brackish water fish, usually sold in fresh water tanks. They are very small, they tolerate each other very well and they are cheap, about 2 bucks a piece. I have converted them over to full salt and they are in my reef tank now. It has been about a week and other than accidentally killing one, they seem fine. They just chill out on the rocks waiting for pods to eat. Here's the link..........http://www.thereeftank.com/forums/f1...es-127219.html

They are just about full grown in the pics.

Another thing is that they cant bring ich to your tank if they've been in FW for any extended time frame.

Although territorial, i love dottybakcs. there sooo colorful and have great personalities. Only when crowded or there's not a lot of rock work do they become little Bast**** lol. If you want a higher fish count, you have to stick with peacful community fish. Chromis(although not as colorful as some, are cool when you have 3), clowns are always a great choice, firefish, blennies, gobys, check out dwarf angels, liveaquaria.com categorizes their fish really well.
