    Thanks for the words of encouragement, did you see my question posted yesterday regarding adding an additional fish in my tank and what would be suitable in this community tank, needs to be colourful and mix well with the other inhabitants, I am going on Thursday to the Jananese Koi Company who claim to be the largest stockist in the WORLD and would like to bring a fish back with me.

    best regards algy1943 (Allen):Cheers:

    Thanks Sarah, always nice to get praise from someone as experienced as you, I am looking to add 1 fish to my collection on Thursday when I visit the Japanese Koi Company who claim to be the largest stockist of marine fish in the WORLD big claim? therefore I am looking for suggestions on a fish that will settle in with my crew and needs to be colourful, I know you sadly lost one but I have just added a lawnmower Blenny and I love him to bits, also just had a weird experience with one of my hermit crabs moulting (thought he had died) how strange that they then eat their discarded body so as to gain the strength and nutriments to survive, gee there is so much to learn.

    Thanks once again

    Allen

    Blennies are great fish! Have you thought about adding a few red or purple firefish? They would be great with your other animals.

    You are pushing it when it comes to stocking. 250 liters is approximately 66 gallons. A general rule of thumb is 1 fish per 10 gallons -- so 6 or 7 fish.

    Do you think it safe perhaps to add 2 fire-fish then that's it.

    If all the fish you have already are getting along and not fighting, they you could add a pair of firefish. They are small.
