40 breeder stock list

Have a 40 breeder display with 20 long sump......tank has been up over a yr, and is mixed reef.....only has 2 clowns right now.... I really would like a goby of some sort, a six line wrasse, and maybe a lawn mower blenny......I also want some sort of starfish.....what kind of starfish would be recommended, and would the lawn mower live without me having any algae?? Would these fish work?

I think your stock list is fine. For starfish I'd get a serpent star, they are really cool. For the blenny I'd give him algae sheets as a supplemental algae source

I also have a arrow crab living in my sump.....should he be ok to put in the display? Unfortunately the hubby brought him home, I then I found they will possibly kill coral banded shrimp, and pick polyps..... True?

I'd be afraid of the coral banded killing the arrow.
