150 gallon stocking

I am getting a 150 gal and looking for stocking options. I currently have a 90 gal going into the new tank. It is a reef tank. Current stock is as follows:

2 x true clowns
1 x one spotted fox face
1 x starry bleeny
1 x flame hawkfish
1 x kole yellow eyed tang
1 x cardinal
2 x cleaner shrimp

Any suggestions are welcome.

I had some slight issues when Ihad the Kole tang and yellow tang, the body shapes re very similar. Dont know if it would have worked out in the end as the Kole passed away.

But if you want multiple tangs I would add them all at once.

That's what I keep telling people....lol I'll probably just order in pieces for my newer tanks. I'm just about OVER hermits and them killing each other. I have hundreds of shells but nooooo they gotta kill each other for theirs.

Think I may go a different route with this tank, maybe do FOWLR. What lil corals I got, keep and do a more aggressive tank. Triggers, puffers, etc.... Opinions?

LOL I;m in the same boat. I;m making a list as we speak as to what I want as potential fish in the 90g. I'm thinking aggressive maybe and definitely not coral safe fish. Something different!

You may lose the corals you do have though, or you could sell them off...just a thought...

your getting a niger i thought??
He won't harm your corals,,no trigger or puffer will...The may move em around once in awhile ,,but won't eat em or nip em...They not considered "reef" safe because full reefs are considered to have all the shrimp and stars and stuff...BTW your CUC will be eaten if you get that trigger

IMO FOWLR is much more fun than boring reefs and boring fish
