55 gallon coral and fish stock list? do I have 2 much?

Just wondering what other peoples stock list looks like for their 55 gallon.

I have 2 clowns
4 fire fish
1 six line wrasse
1 yellow watchman goby
Pistol shrimp
Peppermint shrimp
Cleaner shrimp
A few snails

Xenia coral frag
Kenya tree coral frag
Zoa coral frag
Birds nest coral frag
Red mushroom coral frag


Is this to much already? Would like to get an anenom and a few more frags maybe 1 or 2 small fish? I know LFS's will all tell you different. One tried to sell me a yellow tang today but picked up the 3 firefish to go with my other one to have a small school.

I think an anemone would be fine as long as your water quality is good.

Does the fire fish and purple fire fish get along? I was told they wouldn't

They shouldn't...but if they were added at the same time it might have been ok.

I have (2) B/W Clowns, purple firefish, midas blenny, pink spot watchman goby, cleaner shrimp, (2) emerald crabs, serpent starfish plus tons of corals.

To answer your question about stock, you already have (8) fish. I would think you are fully stocked. A lot depends on the swimming behavior, size (of course), bioload, personality, etc.

I have the (5) fish in mine, and I feel like I'm stocked. I added a small sixline wrasse, didn't make it, but I felt it was just too much for my tank.

The two firefish were added at the same time, I think they each have their own little territory but I haven't seen them fight or nip at eachother.
