Hi, Two questions:I am just starting a 40 gallon marine tank with live rock. Is it best to get one percula clown or two? They are tank-raised locally. I wanted two percs, a royal gramma and one other fish. The fish store recommended a small angel as the 4th fish. Does this combination sound alright? Thanks. Wink

Clownfish are OK as a single but personally I think they do much better as a pair, get the pair of them. Royal grammas do well with clowns and for angels maby a coral beauty or flame angel. But I would not go with more fish then that since you would actually be pushing your limits with stocking fish as it is. But that combo would work.

Could I substitute one or two blue chromis for the angel?

You could go with chromis you would be better off getting at least 2. They do not do as well as a single they are a grouping fish. I orininally went with one and all he did is hide but when I got a 2nd one he came to life and was very active after wards after he got his buddy.
