View Full Version : 220 gal. livestock question

10/26/2016, 08:45 AM
I'm wanting to add another fish. Preferably an Angelfish. I don't know how my blue face angel will like this. Here is the live stock:

8 inch porcupine puffer
baby stars n stripes puffer
Fiji puffer
Naso Tang
Powder brown tang
Purple Tang
Black durgeon trigger
smaller Humu trigger
Lunare wrasse
Beauty coral angel
Blue Face Angelfish

This is inside a 220 Gal. FOWLR setup. Everything is at peace right now in the tank.

Doesn't seem overcrowded and I can remove fish when they outgrow the tank if they do.

Thanks for any opinions

Just so you get a angel that is much smaller than or much larger than the current blueface you should be fine

IMO, I wouldn't add another one. Is the 220 a 6ft tank? You have some fish that can be aggressive. If the balance is good now, I would not mess with it. Just my 2 cents.

I'd wait and see how your Stars and Stripes is like when he gets older, and see where your bioload is. For the first year with my dogface everything was peaceful then one day he decided to pick off and eat every thing in the tank except my Green Spotted Puffers and my lone Maroon Clown. Also, the porcupine and Stars and Stripes can poison the tank if shocked so keeping a peaceful tank is pretty important with those two species. Because of their specialized diet and wasteful eating habits, you are going to need an oversized Skimmer and Sump as those two reach adult size, if you don't have it already.
