I have a 40 gallon cube and was wondering how many fish I could put in it. Right now I have 2 fire fish, 1 blue damsel, 1 three stripe damsel.
I was hoping I could at least 2 clowns forsure, and MAYBE 1 more. Any thoughts?

Every setup is different

I have a rsr250 which is a 54 gallon display and 25 fish.

all the fish get along very well and are peaceful
(Fish fighting can stress out and wipeout a whole tank)

I run a UV, have an oversized skimmer, and have a fuge with a bright kessil and my nutrients stay low and my acros and clams are all happy.

if you want to overstock your tank go slow and be very careful with aggressive fish.

I’ve had tiny cute little clowns grow up to be very aggressive bullies and wipe out expensive fish!
