    I think the hawk will eat your shrimp, Blenny should be ok. Maybe a small clown? Your probably close to a full stock for a small tank.

    One of the reasons why, alone with good cleaning you have such a well established tank with fish is because you didn't over stock, think about this. 40g, everything living in your tank eats and poops, even with water changes and cleaning, it is all kept in a glass box with no place to go, other than when you physically remove it, wc, skimmer, etc. there will be leftovers. All it takes is one more load to cause in balance, then you will have all sorts of fun trying to recover and figure out what happened. Small tanks things like this gets amplified really fast with new changes, so take your time and be prepared to make adjustments, extra cleaning etc if necessary to get it back in balance.

    2 solid years is something to be proud of, just take your time and it will be ok, research your choice and get opinions before adding, you'll be fine.

    Well I'm now down to just 3 fish. A few months ago my Royal Gramma for whatever reason decided to jump ship, this after 2yrs. I'm thinking my 6Line may have had something to do with that decision.
    So yes I'm researching into adding another fish. One who won't be so intimidated by the 6Line. Funny as he doesn't bother my Banggai at all.
    So once again I'm looking for suggestions-lol.

    Oh the Hogfish is pretty. Definitely gotta wait till my Cleaner Shrimp grows up a little bit. She's only about an 1" long, tasty snack size-lol.
