    I've had a clownfish in my 90 gal tank for about 8 months. About a month ago, I added 2 blue chromis and 1 green chromis. The clownfish likes to host quite a few of the corals in the tank, but lately I've noticed that one of the blue chromis is getting very close to the clown. I've actually seen...

  16. General Reef Discussion
    I've got a 90 gallon bare bottom tank, mostly sps. Currently I have a false perc and a royal gramma. I had a regal blue tang but he died a few months ago. Anyone have suggestions for reef safe fish? I was thinking of a yellow tang, another clown, blue chromis, cardinal fish. Ideas?
