    Default Suggestions for Yellow Fish?

    Trying to add a specific color to may tank - some nice bright yellow. Twice, I have tried to add a canary blenny (which I love!) to the tank, with poor results. First time, the fish lasted about 12 hours before I found the sally crabs eating it. The second time, the blenny made it about a month or more, and then one day - it was simply gone. The tank has a closed lid, so he didn't leave. Likely just got eaten again. It would be an expensive experiment to put a third one in, it would seem.

    I like the midas blennies, but kinda think they would suffer the same fate?

    Anybody got a suggestion for another bright yellow fish? It would have to put up with my two ocellaris clowns, a coral beauty, and the lawnmower goby. And perhaps, avoid the crabs? The front glass measures 38"L x 22"H, with lots of room to swim.

    Get rid of the sally light foot and get a citron goby.

    We love to watch the sally crabs. Like little spiders... very entertaining. And they keep the bottom pretty clean. The wrasse and clown goby are great suggestions. Of course, every tank should have a yellow tang, but I am afraid ours isn't big enough for one of those beauties.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    The tank is 21" deep, I think it holds 66G all in...

    maybe a yellow clown goby? midas blenny would work, i think you just had bad luck with those other two fish.
