View Full Version : New FOWLR setup

07/31/2017, 05:52 PM
Ok I changed my 115g w/sump reef tank to a fowlr tank. I'm going to be adding artificial coral to it, but need recommendations on what fish to put in it. I'm wanting to have max amount of fish. I'm running a reef octopus 200 skimmer on it. I only have a tomato clown, 2 yellow tail damsels, and a hawk fish in it right now. Any ideas would be great.

What is the footprint of the tank?

What kind of fish do you like?

48L, 18W, 25T. As far as fish I want color I like all different types of fish.

Im with Stempy on the snowflake eel and yellow tang AND with Mr Eel on the dwarf puffers. They have awesome color and they have personality (or so it seems).

these are some of the ones I'm looking at snowflake eel, Humu rectangle trigger, radiata lion fish, scrabbled angel, pearlscale butterfly, blue tang, yellow tang, and foxface lo. What y'all think?

And a Immaculatus puffer

I went by the store today n picked up a narrow lined puffer. Thinking first of September getting a snowflake eel if they have one.

Don't get the blue tang or the scribbled angel. They like their swimming space and your tank might be a bit small for them.

Most of the fish you wanted will be too big for that tank. The pearlscale butterfly, lionfish,and yellow tang are the only fish that could stay there for life. That puffer needs a 125 minimum. They are very active and put out a huge amount of waste

I don't think a pearscale will do well with aggressive tankmates.

The puffer and the yellow tang and dwarf lions will be fine just don't get a blue tang

Generally you don't want to mix puffers and lions. The puffers will pick on the lions, nipping fins/spines and stress/kill the lion.

Thank you for that

Angels usually fall in that same category
