View Full Version : Don't you love stocking questions

So I kinda want to move some of my stuff around to switch one of my tanks onto something else.

What do you all think of keeping:

Potter's Leopard Wrasse
Pink Spotted Watchman
Midas Blenny
Pair of Percs (kinda small now but this would be there permanent home)

in a 65g. I know filtration is enough for the bioload, more concerned with space for the fishies. The tank is a mixed reef.

Always better to ask.


P.S. I already ahve the fish, they are just not all together.

That sounds fine to me. Would those 5 fish be all the fish in the 65 gallon?

I wouldn't see a problem if the leopard wrasse eats frozen food. I'd add the percs last so they don't claim the whole tank as their own.

Sounds like a good combo to me. Fish that live at different levels, don't compete for food, nice colour/shape variation -- I think it should work out really nicely for you :)

Thanks for the comments.

Ya the 5 fish would all be in the 65g. It has a 30g sump which is mainly a refugium and a Octopus RC skimmer ratd for 300g on the way. I'm sure bioload is not a concern, looking more at space and temprement.

The Wrasse has been with me about a year it eats frozen like a champ. The tank gets fed 3x a day, 5 cubes of food in all, 4 varieties. Don't anticipate aneed to increase the feeding, just the fish count.

I'm freeing up another tank for some seahorses.
