How would a pair of Helfrichi Firefish do in a 75 gallon tank with a flame angel, hippo tang, 2 mandarin gobies, 2 maroon and gold clowns, lawnmower blenny, and a flasher wrasse? Thanks your replies will be greatly appreciated.:rotflmao:

Not so sure they would do well being added after the GSM Clowns...or the Hippo tang.

The hippos pretty shy, but the clowns are only aggresive if something goes near there area. The clowns actually just started laying eggs for the first time, i noticed a clutch this afternoon, which was pretty cool.

The Hippo is going to outgrow that 75 gallon. If you decide to go with the firefish you should have a plan for them if the GSM's get agressive. How long have you had two mandrin gobies, and do you add pod's? I want a second mandrin in my 125, but I was concerned that they would decimate the pod population.

When the hippo gets bigger im gonna give him back to my lfs and swap him out for a tomini tang maybe. I've had the mandarin gobies for about a year in a half and nope i dont add pods, i got them to eat frozen mysis, there are still ridicuosly large amounts of pods in there for some odd reason though.

Given the cost of the Helfrichii, Iuld set up a dedicated tank for them or similar. I always wanted a pair of all 3 species in a 55 g
